We are living in the Djokovic era since 2011. That's more than 10 years
So basically people who were born post 1998-1999 associates tennis with Djokovic, as he has been dominating tennis for 10 years now and been the face of the game all these years.
Federer...yes was called GOAT for many years. But many new tennis followers don't even understand why, as he was constantly losing to Djokovic. This how I felt towards Mike Tyson in early 2000s when I started following boxing. People treated him like he is the best fighter in the world, but it was weird to me, as I saw how Lennox annihilated him.
With the vacuum of GOAT-worthy players Novak will be viewed as GOAT for 15-20 years at least IMO.
That's more than Federer's 10 years (W09-W19).
Nadal on the on the other hand was and is viewed as the second best and clay specialist by two generations in a row.

These nextgen scrubs don’t know a damn thing about actual tennis. They think pushing nonstop and fluking lucky shots makes you the greatest. They don’t know what good tennis is because they grew up being taught and playing blandass robotic tennis. If they were born around when Federer was, they would realize that Faker is nothing but a talentless pusher who has remarkable luck and relies on endless stamina to win matches as he doesn’t have the skill to do anything else.

Djokovic played some good volleys in one match against Medvedev in Paris and no he’s called the best volleyer in the ATP. If that’s true then tennis is in a sad sad state.
Meanwhile, Nole’s mediocre volleys were on full display at the Olympics and the USopen.
