so nole is on 3
nadal has 7
muzzah is slamless

when you compare them to the greats with those numbers it makes much more sense

nole is almost courier level
nadal is almost as good as agassi
and muzzah is almost as good as brad gilbert

Rafa beat then 3 times AO chamipion in AO final, he's close to Sampras on HC, how does THIS sound?

You obviously never watched them play on grass. What you said is bonkers.

Still, Edberg and Becker are better than Nole on grass obviously, but Nole is a lot better than them on clay.

sure Novak beats Becker out by A LOT on weeks at #1 but Boris also has one more year end championships than he does.

there are certainly arguments to be made that Becker is more accomplished

obviously Djokovic will pass him in the future but I just don't see how anyone could argue there is much of a difference, Becker also played in a much harder era, fact, not to say the top 5 in his time was necessarily as strong, but there were WAY more threats throughout the top 100.
the 'era argument' just goes in circles so maybe I should not have brought it up, but at the very least their resumes are pretty fucking close
Four AO titles, today, are just as impressive as 3 Wimby titles in Becker's era. Becker NEVER won a clay court title. Sampras clobbered him in the Italian Open final. He lost to Edberg in the FO semi's and a nobody in the only clay final he reached. Novak beat Nadal in the Madirid and Italinan finals and Federer in two USO semi's being 2 sets down in both. Overall: Novak>Edberg>Becker.

He is vastly inferior to both. Djokovic is just Wilander Mk II, who is another player with more slams than he deserves.
