Sure... I'll take your hardcore Noletard opinion over McEnroe's opinion, basic common sense and overwhelming evidence of solid facts.

He's won five slams, what exactly would he did to do to be in all time great? win 10 slams? He could possibly do that in the next 3 years, maybe two years . He's not even 26 years old, sure he might break down but if not, he still has at least another 10 slams in him talent wise.

This.

MugEnroe has lost it. He needs to go off to a hospital and get his head checked.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

Lil'John cares so much about Djokovic, starting new threads about him, so he must be one of the all-time greats.

Well, of course he is.

5 slams, historic year. Becker, Wilander etc. are all-time greats and have similar numbers. Novak will win a few more slams for sure and be in the McEnroe/Agassi category IMO i.e., above the Wilanders of this world. The question for him is can he make an assault on the level above i.e., Borg, Nadal, Sampras, Federer etc.

Yeah, I think I'll take his opinion over a hardcore Fedtard like you.

Anyway, he already is an all-time good player. 'Great' is not yet the case, but will no doubt come sooner rather than later

Those McEnroe quotes about Nadal are from a few years back... You know, when Nadal was still winning his few non clay titles. McEnroe focuses on the NOW, he's excited about tennis right now and gets overexcited about the current hot player all the time...
