Default Federer 2004 (74-6) vs. Djokovic 2011 (70-6)

Since the 06 vs. 11 thread has turned to shit, I would like to propose a more realistic comparison.

Fed in 04 and Nole in 11 were pretty similar. Both won 3 slams in their first year of domination and ascending to the #1 rank.

Fed was 74-6 on the year, won 3 slams, 3 Masters 1000, 1 TMC 5-0, 1 500 (Dubai), and 3 250's (Halle, Gstaad, Bangkok).

Nole is 70-6 (+ 1 W/O) on the year, won 3 slams, 5 Masters 1000, 1 500 (Dubai), and 1 250 (Belgrade).

Fed had 11 titles to Djokovic's 10.

Ranking points using 2011 system:

Federer 2004- 12,385 points
Djokovic 2011- 13,675 points

Maybe Djokovic had the better year?

Which year was better, and who would win in a fictional time travel match?

Someone should create a "Fed 2002 vs Nole 2011" thread to make Djokovic tards happy.

Federer's 2004 is ahead of 2006 for me never mind Djokovic's 2011.

Who was the tenth player in 2004?

31 slams, 9 WTFs between 10 players = 30 slams, 6 WTFs between three players.

Only a spaz would say 2011 field > 2004 field.

Looks like we have to mention the name of Nadal everywhere if we want to discuss anything about tennis!! For example, if we wanna talk about Borg's achievement, we also have to think if Rafa/Baby Nadal was there.
Hey! Open ur eyes! There were a lot of good players other than Rafa. What do you think? In top 10 of 2004, there were Roddick, Hewitt, Safin, Moya, Gaudio and Agassi. All of them won at least a GS title. Even there were Agassi who is considered as one of the greatest. 6 players out of top 9(with Roger, 7 players out of 10. They were ranked 1,2,3,4,5,8,10) had at least a GS title. This is the real top 5! Think about the present one. Nothing more to say..

Still want to mention about Rafa? Well, it is only your matter then.
