Every little thing Federer says, will be disected word for word like a passage out of a bible because a great a player that Roger is, nothing can be taken for granted.

I'm not usually someone who underrates the past, but I do actually believe that the top-4 we've had since 2008 is the best I've ever seen on such a long period.

In the beginning of the 80s there was McEnroe-Lendl-Connors then Wilander joined them, but it was not really the best period of all those players except 1984 for McEnroe (but he was disappointing in 1982-1983), and overall I think that in the period we've lived in the last 5 years, the top-4 was better.

However, I feel we may reach the end of that big top-4 period soon, as Federer and Nadal might decline, and after that, Djokovic and Murray might feel quite alone considering the absence of youngsters.

I think in the future, tennis fans will cherish the years we've lived in the last 5-6 years.

doesn't mean much, but if you think about it, in a global survey, the results would be similar.

I must say this list looks quite ridiculous. Boxers will balk at seeing Ali 5th, whereas the best boxer ever - Sugar Ray Robinson - is not mentioned. I don't think Basketball aficionados will be impressed with Magic Johnson's inclusion and Michael Jordan's exclusion.

And I really don't think Bruce Lee would be 12th in a global survey....nor Callipatira 13th. Not to mention Ribot 14th, which - if anyone should wonder - is a horse.

I can just see the difference what he says what is on his mind and like this when he says something because he has nothing else to say so blurts something like this

let me correct you a bit here. Roger: "I'm the best ever and I do NOT care abbot the rest 3 fools, they are nobodies comparing to ME, myself and me"

Nadal (if asked the same question): 'Clay is the only legitimate surface, all 4 slams should be played in Paris, no'
Nole; 'my 5 slams are worth more than 17 because I've had to fight that Swiss ballerina and that Clay God moron. quality over quantity'
Mandy: 'I'm just happy that I've managed to join big 3 and be in this conversation'.
Safin| 'who cares about slams, I'm the best looking tennis player ever and I slept with over 25,000 women/drank 1000 litters of vodka, still winning slams, that's all that really matters'
Nalbandian| 'I've eaten more burgers than Fed/Nole and Nadal combined can even imagine, f'uck them all, they are just a bunch of sissies, can't even look at that anorexic/bulimic #1 we have right now ...I'd rather have sex and eat than play tennis, tennis is over so rated'



Merry Christmas everyone.

How many times did top 4 reached semis in the past 5 years? At least 3/4 always there. Old Fed only tells the truth.

Even a replacement number #4 made it .

How many? Well, let's see. Five years, let's include AO 2008, that is 21 slams. Number of SFs:

Federer: 17/21
Nadal: 14/18
Djokovic: 15/21
Murray: 12/21

Even with Nadal dropping out - not much changes.

The only era that had similar competition was Connors/Borg/McEnroe/Lendl.

If you look at the time spent in the top 5, Federer still has a ways to go to match Connors. Nadal has a career trajectory similar to Borg, and then you have McEnroe/Lendl for Novak and Murray, respectively.

As opposed to this era where non top 4 bendover willingly and easily and choking and mugging is a daily course.

Last 5 years I suppose you mean last 20 Slams.

AO 2013: 3/4 (Ferrer entered as #5)

USO 2012: 2/4 (+Berdych and Ferrer)

Wimbledon 2012: 3/4 (+Tsonga)

Roland Garros 2012: 3/4 (+Ferrer)

Australian Open 2012: 4/4

US Open 2011: 4/4

Wimbledon 2011: 3/4 (+Tsonga)

Roland Garros 2011: 4/4

Australian Open 2011: 2/4 (+Murray and Ferrer)

USO 2010: 3/4 (+Youznhy)

Wimbledon 2010: 3/4 (+ Berdych)

Roland Garros 2010: 1/4 (+Soderling, Melzer and Berdych)

Australian Open 2010: 1/4 (+Murray,Tsonga and Cilic)

US Open 2009: 3/4 (+Del Potro)

Wimbledon 2009: 2/4 (+Roddick and Haas)

Roland Garros 2009: 1/4 (+Soderling, Del Potro and Gonzalez)

Australian Open 2009: 2/4 (+Roddick and Verdasco)

US Open 2008: 3/4 (+Murray)

Wimbledon 2008: 2/4 (+Schuttler and Safin)

Roland Garros 2008: 3/4 (+Monfils)


So overall 52/80 semifinal places for players ranked outside the top 4 in the last 5 years/20 Slams, 28/80 for players ranked #5 and below.

I think he means Nadal spoils it for the three of them because clay is not a real surface.
