People should really stop taking into account streaks on two different slams at the same time. That's really not what this thread is about.

How anyone could pick Nadal's before Fed's because "Fed played in weak era" is incredibly stupid. Not only because both streaks were in the same era; also the competition on clay was worse than on hc.

Borg's streaks are the most impressive, particularly since they overlap.

2003-2006 was a Mug Era and Nadal was only a teenager back then which shows what a great champion he is unlike Fed who had to wait until all competition disappeared and won his first title at the age of 23.

Mugerer, this guy.

No, a mug era is described as an era which had weak competition (i.e. the era that Fed won the majority of his titles). Then post teen Nole and Rafa showed up and Frauderer was exposed in not being the GOAT that is reserved for Sampras and followed by Borg. Fed is tied with Rafa for 3rd place on the GOAT list.

Psycho killer, qu'est-ce que c'est?

Borg's five Wimbledons were most impressive, especially since in the last of those he faced a grass-court specialist par excellence in the final and managed to overcome him. It was a fantastic match and anyone on this forum who has never seen it - well, sort that out soon.

That's closely followed by Federer's five US Opens. He was so utterly dominant in that streak he really never looked like losing a match (as Litotes explained before). It's also a major that now looks increasingly difficult to defend, due I suppose to the number of hard court specialists in the game today? Any other reasons people think this is currently the hardest major to defend?

USO is the hardest slam to defend, after Federer dominated that slam, USO was won by all the other main players of the game (Delpo, Nadal, Nole, Murray), meaning we have 5 main guys with chances at this slam. Can't say the same about the other 3.

I agree with this however but it can also be debated that Wimbledon is more competitive because since 2008 it has been contested by six different players, whereas at the US Open, in the same period, was contested by five players.

CrazyForNole makes me laugh with his biased view on things.

Fed's 5 Wimbledons were incredible because he only had one 5-setter in his five titles, being the final match against Nadal. The USO streak was incredible too though and he beat so many amazing players in that run (more than at Wimby definitely). Agassi and Hewitt in 04, Nalbandian, Hewitt, and Agassi in 05, peak Blake, peak Davydenko, and peak Roddick in 06, Isner, Lopez, Roddick, Davydenko, and Djokovic in 07, and then Nole and Andy in 08. Was a truly remarkable streak.

And I'm sick of this weak era crap. Nadal was a great HC player back then as showcased by some of his results (Montreal and Madrid in 05), and Davydenko, Roddick, Ljubicic, Nalbandian, Blake, Hewitt, and 03-05 Agassi were all tremendous players.

He beat a retiring Agassi, teenager Djokovic and the rest are all mugs: Hewitt, Isner, Lopez, Davydenko, Blake, Nalbandian

Fed's 5 US Opens in a row followed by his 5 Wimbledons in a row.

Competition is highly subjective. In any given event, there's only one winner. How do you define competition? By the accomplishments of the winner's opponents that were attained at a different time and place? Think about how moronic that argument is.
