Cilic lol?

That's basically it. The Hall of Gods will be exclusive to the BIG 3

I was thinking about that. If all Big 3 end up with 20+, would it be fair to lump them with everyone else? A Hall of Immortals/Gods as you say needs to be created.

Delpo doesn’t have much on Cilic if you compare their resumes, if one is elected the other definitely should as well. It would seem unfair to players of previous eras if a few slam finalists were elected, but I‘m okay with it as long as roughly the same amount of players are elected in each era, they already had the bad luck of playing with Fedalovic.

Cilic, a player banned for doping, in Hall of Fame? Good one.
They may not have a choice. They will be very short on inductees once the "big 5" are done with. Will have to live off WTA and doubles specialists for a while unless they include DelPo and then Cilic as well.

What do you mean "no choice"? Is it obligatory to induct a certain number of players per year/ decade?

Probably not, but it' will look very bad for the ATP if there will be no inductees from singles for many years. It's very uncommon in recent history.

TBH, I wouldn't even include Wawrinka, let alone Mugrin and Delmugtro.
But if Delmugtro gets included, so should Mugrin.

i actually do like the idea of some god tier HOF so they could induct some of the lesser tier players into the normal HOF more easily. i mean, what's the point of a HOF when 3 players would be that far ahead in all of dominance, numbers and stats the moment they get in?

You have 300 weeks and 17+ slam and 100 title HOF and then you have the guy who won one slam, one masters title, a 500 and had a career high ranking of #4.

But they will be included, very likely. I am sure you have seen what kind of players were included in the past.
Noah, Chang, Rafter, Roddick and Stich e.g.

Why would'nt you include Andrew Murray and Stanislas Wawrinka or Del Potro ?

Wawrinka is a lock as he's a multiple GS champ and then again Thiem where so close to win his first GS at the AO and that would put him equal to cilic.

But it's not like they¨re all enlisted in the same year, so Fed or Murray will be the first go in as it depends who retires first, but we have 5 years to go on here and it's hard to say who will win GS for the later part of this decade as Federer is on last leg and I can't see Nole play this dominant come 2024 or later.

But Rafa and Nole should have a couple of years left in them but come 2025 it's hard to say if the new generation with steffi, med can step it or if there's another top talent ready step up
