Nole has been unlucky, could have been undisputed GOAT.
I feel Nole would be the undisputed GOAT by now if not for these factors:

1. Had to deal with overall GOAT in prime, stopping him at USO from 07-09 and WB 2012 over and over again

2. Had to deal with the greatest clay player, denying him RG at 3 times (overall record 1-6)

3. Didn't find gluten free diet until 2011

4. Many missed slam opportunities/chokes (USO 2012, RG 2013, USO 2013, USO 2014, RG 15)

5. Todd martin fucked up his serve which took years to fix

6. Motivation problems. Everyone knows Motivated Djokovic is still unbeaten :worship:

7. Crowd always rooting against him caused loss of confidence, forcing him to play "road" games. Disgusting crowds he faced, e.g. this Wimbledon 2015 final. Crowd was so blatantly in favor of Fed that they didn't even stand up when Nole won. Disgusting crowd.

Discuss.

nadal, federer and djokovic all have the same claim ("if"). that's what's so great about them, they had to make their history playing against others all time greats.

Nole is not done yet. He could still reach GOAT status if he continues to play very well for 3-4 years (and wins close to 17 slams) Its difficult but not impossible.
