It is often said we live in the Nadal era as Nadal as dominated tennis since 2008, clay and decoturf hard court in particular.

Federer era was 2003-2007.

Djokovic never really dominated as has always been playing catch up yet he has won all 4 majors at once in that time dominated 2 Majors and amassed a winning h2h v federer everywhere and against Nadal at smaller events.

So with no Djokovic era, how spectacular has is career been, for me it puts him on the GOAT pedestal with Nadal .

Both the biggest and best sportspeople since Muhamed Ali. No ifs no buts.

If Djokovic has never dominated then no open-era Goat ever has or shall.

9 best consecutive seasons (with the most slams):

B.Borg, nine consecutive seasons 1973-1981 i.e. his whole career:
11 slams + 5 slam finals + 15 masters + 2 WTF + 2 y.e. no.1

P.Sampras nine consecutive seasons 1993-2001
12 slams + 3 slam finals + 10 masters + 4 WTF + 6 y.e. no.1

R.Federer nine consecutive seasons 2003-2011
16 slams + 7 slam finals + 18 masters + 6 WTF + 5 y.e. no.1

R.Nadal nine consecutive seasons 2006-2014
13 slams + 6 slam finals + 27 masters + 0 WTF + 3 y.e. no.1

N.Djokovic, nine consecutive seasons 2011-2019 (including injury period)
15 slams + 7 slam finals + 29 masters + 4 WTF + 5 y.e. no.1

+ 3x being very close to y.e. no.1 (winning more slams & masters than Murray'16, winning the same number of slams & masters as Nadal'19, winning more ITF points than Nadal'13)

You had to reply. I knew Djoker fans would not resist this trolling.

We must help the poor soul with his soon incoming second ban.
Are you hitting the report button lol. Is Nadal being GOAT that painful? The mods here not snowflakes like on TTW so bannings not handed out for stating facts.

I see facts not your strongest point. Nadal 2008 2013 2017 2019 was by far the vest player those years hence was YE1. Its 2020 now. Where has Djokovic 9 consecutive years come from lmao? Or is there an alternate reality where Djokovic was YE1 for 9 years?

Lets compare Nadal and Djokovic the two greatest ever.

MAJORS...Nadal
MASTERS 1000...Nadal
OLYMPICS.....Nadal
h2h MAJORS....Nadal
YE1.....NADAL
MULTIPLE MAJORS MULTIPLE SURFACES........NADAL
MOST MAJORS at A SLAM....NADAL
H2H SMALLER BO3 MATCHES...DJOKOVIC

Now by my calculation looking at the above, i think we could say advantage Nadal no?

Still, some could find this goat stat. interesting or illuminating.

Beside the best open-era decade resume, Djokovic thus (together with Federer) holds the best nine consecutive seasons in career.
Federer...2004-2007 YE1.

2004...2005...2006...2007. On my abacus counting the above it comes to four. Or are you using the planet Venus calendar where one earth year is two years. But that still comes to 8 and not 9. Was 9 a typo? These smartphones..the keypads are frustrating no.?

During my membership on MTF since late 2012 I have used reporting on only 2 occasions if I remember correctly, but never on a troll. So you are safe with me in that regard. You have your own amicable personality that will spell a doom for you. All we have to do is feed the troll... :D

FedCult here is spiteful, they jump on anyone's daring to tell them the truth throat. They want silence apart from their letanies.

If last decade from 2011 to 2020 (so far) isnt Djokovic era than I dont understand definition of that word.

The Federer years: 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009 + (6 YE#2)
The Nadal years: 2008, 2010, 2013, 2017, 2019 + (6 YE#2)
The Djokovic years: 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015, 2018 + (3 YE#2)

in all years since 2003 except one these three are the joint lords of tennis, all worthy, all champions, all masters of their field and 2020 has yet to convince us that this is changing as of yet but we shall see.

Based on this and your following post, i don’t think you quite understood (or you did but your trolling is quality, well done) that it was a comparison of everyone’s personal best 9 consecutive years, hence the whole...comparison

Quoting facts doesnt get people banned. Nadal winning USO2019 has sent serbians and Federer fans into a tailspin as it confirmed Nadal as GOAT but it is fact im afraid. Best deal with rather than hitting report button lol

A decade is 2010-2019. 2020 is start of a new decade. Yes Djokovic has won 1 Major this decade. He will need more to have an era.

Nadal 2010-2019...that was an era. Nadal won the most hehe
