If Djokovic wins some more hardcourt slams then, by the numbers, I suppose he can.

For sure he can. He just has to win 5 of the next 10 hard court slams, so half. I think he easily has that in him. Even if he wins 3 or 4 only he could surpass Roger if he wins another couple U.S Opens. He is already the Australian Open GOAt, and his U.S Open record could be better than Roger's Australian Open record with just 3 titles due to all his finals there. He has a good shot to win more Masters too.

Yeh, he might even surpass Roger's 5 masters at Cincinnati.. oh and btw, Fed has 4 Australian Open GS, not 3, as you seem to be saying in your post.

In your dreams-LOL!! The only players who has a claim as the GOAT on any surface is Nadal-Borg-Rosewall on clay, Sampras-Federer-Laver-Rosewall on grass. So far, Novak, has no claim as GOAT on any surface.

Definitely. All he has to do is keep playing at his current 25-year-old level into his late 20s & 30s. I mean, all great tennis players have done that.

Just because Nadal on clay can wear down a stroke, doesn't make it a weakness.
I've never said that Fed2007 would have unforced errors like he usually have against Nadal. But the very fact that he couldn't attack with it as he could with his fh is more than enough for Nole2011 to take initiative and stretch Fed with his attack.
Fed would mostly go with bh slices, but those shots are not so effective against Nole as they are against most of other players...

Nadal will win more US Opens than Djymnast (they are currently tied at 1 US Open title all). And at the Australian Open, even after Nadal announced that he'd only had a couple of weeks of practice wit his new heavy racquet, he took Djymnast to 6 hours. Nadal will walk all over Djymnast next time they meet in Australia. I doubt Nadal will bother playing the AO too often, but he'll definitely win more US Opens than Djymnast.

If he keeps drawing Ferrer in slam SF then he can reach double digits at the slams pretty soon.

Fed has 9, Pete has 7, Andre has 6.

Djoker has 5. Absolutely he CAN. But will he is the question. Like Nadal at W, Djoker has lost thrice in the finals at USO.

Djoker will probably end up as the AO GOAT, he needs just one more title to do that. If Nole ends up with 6 AO, 3 USO, he'll be right there. He absolutely needs USO 2013.

USO 07, Fed was too good, USO 10, Nadal was too good, but he really fucked up last year vs. Windray.
