Last two rows kind of suggest Novak won 6 slams in a row (because we're only considering Big3)

I kinda hope they all reach at least 15 each -- I'm mostly rooting for Federer to have the most among the 3, but yeah, an even Slam count would be just cool to see, haha. Of course, it conflicts to my hope that someone younger actually wins a Slam so I'm not sure what I really want here haha. What is more interesting is their balance in Masters 1000 titles. That's where the margins are so close.

what's scary is that in 15 years, it only gave the rest of the world 10 chances to win a slam...imagine had these 3 monsters not been there, how many of the current and recent very good players would have been slam holders...

Looking at this, shows how much Federer 'owe' his GOAT status to Djokovic since Nadal could have caught up with Federer's slam counts if not for Djokovic. Well, maybe in some cases Federer could also have increased his slam counts without Djokovic in the way, but that will be minor compared to Nadal.

And both Nadal and Novak "owe" their GS success to the fact they are five and six years younger than Fed. Were they the same age Rafa would still have similar clay numbers but neither would have HC or grass GS. Just another example of blind luck for the pair of them...>:)

I dunno. Djokovic beat Federer at slams 9 times. (3 times in finals 6 in semifinals).

Djokovic beat Nadal 5 times at slams ( 3 finals, 1 SF, 1 QF)

Federer is 6-9 against Djokovic at slams. Nadal is 9-5 against Djokovic.

It certainly seems to me that Djokovic has done much more damage to Federer than he has to Nadal.

People say Rafa was just a claycourt specialist, and it was true early on. But if that were the case he would only have 11 right now.

Federer had a running start after the 1st slam and until Rafa started also.
Nole started late.
There are alot of scenarios. Take one out and leave the other 2, how that would change the slam landscape.
Take 2 out and leave just one, would probably be too boring.
Del Potro if not for those injuries i feel he would have a few more.
Murray took too long to get out of the Big 3 shadow and become the Big4.
Stan just needed some mental coaching.

I feel my numbers are a bit off. Ill check them later.
