And you used juniors as a way of saying this? It was obviously supposed to be funny, which it failed at being.

It was not a joke. I understand that you are confused after such beating but being this ignorant is scary.

I see, so you made an idiotic comment, yet it wasn't a joke? That doesn't bode well for you.

Legend status is achieved at 25+ slams.

No mens player is a legend yet.

Not yet, but coming close. Winning FO would certainly make a strong argument for the case, but anyway, even without it, he should have at least 3 good years more, so plenty of time.

If he wins the next FO, he will be,without any doubt.
Very few players have won the 4 GSs in history.

Default Re: Do you consider Novak Djokovic as a legend in the game?

It's not all about number of slams. The way he broke the Fedal duopoly to leap-frog them and take the #1 ranking spot after 7 years in their hands was amazing. Both Roger and Rafa are still beating everybody else (hence their #2 rankings) and are fighting for every title. So everything that Novak has won, he has had to fight two of the best players of all time to get. Nothing has been given to him. That alone would have been enough to make him a legend. The man to beat Fedal.

Add leading his country to a Davis Cup title, 5 Grand Slams, 5 masters in a year and 3 Grand Slams in a row and all these epic battles ...

Even if he were to stop playing right now he would be considered a legend. No question about it.

Totally agree with you. You only forgot to mention the streak.
