And that match where pre-prime Djokovic beats peak Federer is just another proof that Djokovic is BOAT.

Djokovic has had a less taxing game on his body so he will be able to sustain a bit longer (like 3-4 years) prime period for himself.

Could we leave that to some imaginary fan forum?
I really don't want to read it again and again here, because with time (and not enough cover and results) it can get ridiculous.

Gluten Nole with severe fitness and health problems and a nowhere near developed game as this decade = prime? Ya...I don't think so.

Vjmtz is right

I didn't say that Djokovic is GOAT, I said he is BOAT which is true. Nothing wrong to say that

Re: Djokovic is the bookmakers' favourite to win AO

Some fans don't even accept the concept of a GOAT, why bring then some imaginary new concept of a "most complete player"?
It is so meaningless from so many sides and the Djokovic fanbase has been regarded therefore as trying hard to prove their fave as some imaginary superhero of tennis.
It's certain to see that he doesn't need all that, because he got all the recognition after winning 12 slams as an ATG.
(Everything else must be still earned the hard way, though realistically if he wins only further 3 slams and like 5 Masters then only Federer will be regarded as a better/more successful player in front of him, even Laver will be a distant 3rd.)

Djokovic has been in his prime since 2007. Period.

Djokovic could really play into his forties at this rate.

NID. What's more surprising to me is why he was NOT the favorite from the beginning.

No, that would be the difference between pre-2011 undeveloped Glutenovic and 2011+ polished gluten-free Djokovic.

Well, you can look at it that way but Djokovic won so many 'things' from 2007 before 2011. Do I need to remind you?

Djokovic was not 'underdeveloped' even in 2016. He ended up as what, I can't remember, I think #16 at the end of 20016 if I remember correctly. He was only 18 or 19yo.
