According to stats, prior to USO they were both tied at 223 wins over top 10 opponents. By beating Berrettini, Djokovic surpassed this all-time record. Out of those 224 wins, 30 came against Nadal and 27 came against Federer which represents 25% of Djokovic’s top-10 victories. 🙌🏻

That's not even minimally logical.
People ignore that a good chunk of Roger matches were played between 1998-2004 before just the same high ranked players reached even slam qf, sf and f. Which proves Roger also competed in an hera with less homogenization and were draws were wide open due there being more specialists. and Even 2005-2007 wasnt as bad as later on.. basically every year after became more and more homogenized. So DJokovic having more top 10 wins, means that he dominated a more one dimensional tour, where most players have no chance of success because there are too few factors involved in order to dominate the atp circuit. Djokovic Success came 90% on 2011+ and even we have to consider that 14 of his 20 GS have been won since Wimbledon 2014... Djokovic is the king of homogenization, and boring pingpong tennis.

you mean the homogenization goat... djokovic wouldnt have been a goat in say 2001.
Yep. Homogenization.

That's why Nadal has 13 French Opens but only one Australian Open.

That's why Federer has 8 Wimbledons but only one French Open.

Because homogenization.

It takes a special kind of stupid to somehow try to turn yet another Novak's achievement against him.

Yes.

And also there's the matter of the long tail of Federer's career.

And that Djokovic has had a long career with zero younger rivals.

And the handy circumstance that the best of Djokovic's peers were either late bloomers (Stan) or got early career-killing injuries (Delpo, Murray).

But more fundamentally, there is the fact that making more top 10 wins in fewer matches could simply be an indicator of a weak top 10. Like, duh.

Again, the homogenisation has been relative, not absolute.

It's really not that difficult to understand.
