I think he is. If nothing, he is sort of.
He has one title, 2 finals and 2 semis.

Nole is a legend of life and I believe life encompasses the USO as well.

So the answer is ajde.

Ajde.

So Federer is a legend of the FO?

Saving match points and won over most successful player in USO history only is able legend to do. So yes, answer is obvious. Federer has never done anything over most successful player of RG.

OK, so Federer has achieved more at the FO than Djokovic has at the USO, but Djokovic is a legend at the USO and Fed is not one at the FO?

If it is what you are saying, it is a mightily retarded thing to say.

In 10 years when Nole has 11 Wimbledons Hass will be praised as a legend too for beating a fellow legend in the 2009 QF using the draconian style of serve and volley.

Federer's result in final of 2008 got him already in legend.
Djoko has wins at USO over Nadal, Federer, Roddick, DelPotro...all champions of that event

Is there a precise definition of "USO/GS legend" by which this would be "illogical"? I think it's a matter of opinion more than some kind of hard logic. I for instance consider his USO history more memorable and "legend"-worthy than his AO history, despite his 3 AO titles trumping his single USO title on paper. Why? Because of the way he's been consistently "knocking at the door" for success at this tournament and for the way in which he finally achieved it. Of course, winning it a couple of more times would help cement his legacy but he's still got plenty of time for that ;)

My opinion of his opinion is that the logic behind it is laughable. But of course, this is purely a matter of opinion.

And Federer may be consider a legend at RG too. I think he holds the record of consecutive semifinals (5).

He has one title, 2 finals and 2 semis.

I guess it depends on how you interpret "legend" in a specific context.
But please realize that if one restricts a term enough it distorts the meaning beyond recognition.

In a restricted sense, Mr. Djokovic could be said to have had a "legendary" season in 2011 as his season was one of the best in the Open era.

But normally, a "legendary" player will usually have a career of above average length with many significant accomplishments in the form of individual statistics or championships.

There are many players like Mr. Djokovic with a single win and other good finishes at the US Open. It would diminish the "legend" term and all of the true legends accomplishments if we started calling all of these players "legends of the US Open".

Here are the 6 players that I believe deserve true legend status at the event during the Open era.

Jimmy Connors: winner of 5 US Opens between 1974 and 1983, and at the age of 39 lost in the 1991 semifinals to Jim Courier - period of 18 years near the top. The only man to win the title on 3 different surfaces - grass, Har-Tru clay, and DecoTurf hard court.

John McEnroe: winner of 3 straight US Opens and a total of 4.
Mr. Connors and Mr. McEnroe combined to prevent the great Bjorn Borg from winning at the US Open 4 times.

Ivan Lendl: winner of 3 straight US Opens and lost in 5 finals to Mr. Connors (2), Mr. McEnroe, Mats Wilander, and Boris Becker.

Pete Sampras: winner of 5 US Opens over a period of 13 years (1st - 1990, 5th - 2002) and lost in 3 finals.

Andre Agassi: winner of 2 US Opens, losing 4 times in the finals over a period of 16 years (Final 1990, Final 2005)

*Roger Federer: winner of a record 5 straight US Opens (2004-2008) in the Open Era. Lost in his 2009 bid to take 6 straight titles to Juan Martin del Potro. Would not be surprised to see him be a finalist and/or take another title before retiring.
*Still active

As of now, Mr. Connors and Mr. Sampras are probably the 2 greatest of the legends of the Open era at the US Open due to their high achievements and longetivity, though Mr. Federer could still join this elite group if he adds additional titles or finals appearances in his latter years.

Though Mr. Agassi won just 2 titles, he had 4 finals losses to legends Sampras (3), and Roger Federer over a period of 16 years, and incredible feat of longevity at this event and as such I believe he deserves to be included as a "legend" at this event.

Stefan Edberg and Patrick Rafter did win twice each, but they lacked any longevity at this event and thus don't make it on my list.

Respectfully,
masterclass

Not yet but he's getting there, maybe two more finals appearance or win. Next to Federer, he is the most eligible for legend status in USO amongst all active players.

And per bouncer7 logic, Robin Soderling is automatically a legend at Roland Garros because he has beaten the great Roland Garros legends of his time there (Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer) ;)

thanks masterclass.

i think its you who is a master class tennis analyst mate.

sod is done mate. zero slams and that is how it will end.

in order to be considered a legend when 3 all time greats are playing at the same time you need a few slams. you need at least 5.

so sod is plain out of luck. he came along at the wrong time.

Nole has the 9th best results at the USO in the Open Era, behind...

Sampras
Connors
Federer
McEnroe
Lendl
Agassi
Edberg
Rafter
Djokovic

Actually, Nole is more of a legend at the Australian Open, where he is #4 in terms of results in the Open Era...

Federer
Agassi
Wilander
Djokovic

Why compare him to Roddick who has ZERO Wimbledon titles. He's maybe more comparable to Ivanisevic who I would consider somewhat of a Wimbledon legend despite winning only one title.
