MIMIC is using facts while you're using useless interpretations of your delusional perception. It makes all of you mad because your arguments are based on nothing and you feel like you're getting exposed by this guy. Great work, MIMIC. Keep it up

Whether you're just illiterate or have selective memory....I dunno. But whatever it is, please try and fix it.
You actually did?

Well good then, however you can't call me illiterate or tell me I have selective memory, I don't keep track of every post you make

It's good to see that Novak is dominating this strong era.

Yes, a nice list of current top 10. But I wasn't aware that tournaments only consisted of players only drawing other players from the top 10. What about the current top 11-50 compared with ten or twelve years ago?

Please just go watch cricket or golf or some sport more befitting your grandeur, Slade. Leave tennis to the people who love tennis.

For the record, I did not make this thread to make any sort of "weak/strong" era implications. I just thought it was an interesting stat. I mean, you COULD come to those conclusions, but it's certainly not what I was doing. Like I said, a lot of other years got really close...in addition to the week in 1993.

Re: Everyone in the top 9 has made a slam final

Not sure if anyone else has mentioned it - I skipped past the posts as soon as I saw the first inference made to weak and strong eras - but I imagine there's some connection between the stat in OP and the fact that the current average age of top ten is so high. Older you are - more chances to make finals, no? I'm no expert in quantitative data analysis, regression analysis, etc, but...

In a related matter - would be interesting to see current top ten's Masters victories/masters finals/majors victories compared to other top tens from different generations (eg. 10 years ago, 20 years ago, etc.) Maybe somebody has already done this?

No he wouldn't. Djokovic would be a heavy underdog in W, USO, and RG. Djokovic doesn't have the firepower to hit through prime Fed in RG. Never had. Federer would overpower Djokovic.

That's just ridiculous, Djokovic at 20 years old routined prime Fed in straight sets there, prime Djokovic would be a huge favourite over any version of Federer at AO.
Mono Fed. Even this year that AO SF should have gone 5 and if it did, then who knows what would have happened? Djokovic would never be a big favourite over Fed in AO. Best case for him is 50-50. The only year where he was invincible in AO was 2011.

Re: Everyone in the top 9 has made a slam final

At his best level from 2004-2007, Federer lost to 19 yo Gasquet, 19 yo Berdych, 18 yo Rafa and 19 yo Murray. How can anyone claim that version of Federer would dominate prime Novak when Federer got outplayed by inexperienced teenagers?

There's no need for exhaustive lists showing how weak the top 10 was from 2004-2007: their meager achievements in the major tournaments speak for themselves.

The only slam I think prime Fed definitely wins in this period is Wimbledon 2014, he maybe wins a couple of more aswell but it's not a lock by any stretch.
2006-2008 was way stronger than 2014-2016 but leave that for the era thread.

As usual you're ridiculously underrating Federer and overrating Djokovic. With Federer's groundgame of 2003-2012 he would definitely be a big favourite over Djokovic in RG, W, USO, but the slow as ass courts in AO bring him back down to only a slight favourite.

The problem with Djokovic's domination 2015 - 2016 is that a lot of people overrate Djokovic.
This is all true...in your mind. In reality, what you're saying is and .
