Default Boris Becker : "CYGS is impossible"

"Novak is different from other sports' stars. He spends a lot of time on the tour, hanging out with the other guys, his colleagues. He is very popular and to find someone to practice with, for him is always very easy. With Berdych and Wawrinka he has a great relationship. With Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal though, he never practiced"
The German then talked about the famous "accident" happened between Novak and Andy Murray. "Even Novak has his flows and to play a best of five sets match in tennis is like a boxing match. I am sorry Andy misunderstood Novak's moment of difficulty, but we all talked about it right after the match" said Boris.
"He is the best player in the World, the best of the class and everyone wants to beat him. You ask me if he can win all four Grand Slam tournaments in the same year? It is basically impossible. There are too many different factors including health, happiness, tactics and condition". Andre Agassi doesn't see it the same way though. Andre already talked about how Novak could win all Four Majors this year.

Agassi has more slams so his jinx wins out

There's a reason, Graf, the German, is married to Agassi, and not to fellow German, Becker. So, Agassi's views should get more credit, no?

You really think Steffi looks better than Becker's wife/wives?

Agassi even threw his own wife under the bus. I guess Steffi likes it rough. Boris, however, is a soft lover.

Anyways, he said: "It is basically impossible" which isn't exactly a revolutionary statement.

He is right. And these factors only become more difficult to manage as you get older (Djokovic turns 28 this year), particularly when you have a family.

Why on earth is it impossible. The gymnast came bloody close in 2011, it was only an unexpected appearance from JesusFed that stopped him.

Positive thinking hey Boris!

Anyway, it is extremely difficult. Novak and Roger have come close, for which they should be commended. But to actually do it? I'm not sure it will be done again, at least not in this era. Hypothetically Nole could do it if he played really well all year round, but it is tough.

Federer in 2006, 2007 and 2009 as well as Djokovic in 2011 came very close. That´s 4 times in the last 10 years and nowadays there are no opponents like Peak Nadal on clay or JesusFed (at least over Bo5), so I think it´s possible for sure. Just unlikely for Djokovic because he´s not dominant enough.

Its his coaching style ... spur on Nole to get the CYGS by saying its impossible. He does have a good chance if I m honest.

And if he gets that - he will overnight jump above Nadal and Federer in GOAT stakes


BTW - Hilarious beginning to the thread .. ANdre v Boris !!

Of course it is impossible. He is not 18-19 year old dominant Graf.

He is getting closer and closer to 30 and is not the dominant player that Graf was.

He is not the GOAT Graf was.

He is an all time great but not in the GOAT discussion like Graf and Laver in the sixties.
