Yeah remember all the folks that said for "sure" this would be the year next gen took over. It's early in the year still but next gen so far hasn't lived up to the hype(surprise, surprise). A 33 y/o past his prime Monfils has been better than next gen for crying out loud.

Speaking of ATP records, it could be a tough year for Fed in terms of his records. Nadal could tie or pass him in slams. Novak could tie or pass him in terms of weeks at number 1. Right now Fed has to be rooting for Novak to lose the number 1 ranking and Nadal not to win anymore slams. But how would that work, if Novak loses the number 1 ranking anytime soon it will only be to Nadal. And if Nadal got the number 1 ranking that mean he is winning slams.

Precisely. But, I hear it doesn't matter to Fed anyway, he plays for the love of the game. Also, records are meaningless anyway as Fed has transcends the sport while having the classiest, most beautiful game style. Right? :lol:

In fairness to Fed he was never one to obsesse over the records. Neither has Nadal for the matter. The only one that has obsessed over them is the insecure Djokovic and his insecure fans. Fed has always said throughout his career his goal was never to be known as the GOAT because no one is ever going to agree on one person as the GOAT anyway. Fed has always said he was just happy to be in the conversation.
