I still can’t understand why the majority of the forum refuses to recognize the importance of Davis Cup. Apart from Grand Slam, it is the greatest achievement one can reach during career. It can’t be compared to Masters, not even GS majors; Winning DC is something every player in the world is dreaming of. Roger Federer once said that winning Davis Cup is his greatest goal.

So, you must admit that this board doesn’t give enough credit to players like Ljubo or Mario, and they definitely deserved it; they achieved something Federer and especially Djokovic never will.

So think about that when you next time start one of yours GOAT threads.

Davis Cup is nice to have.

It is not, in any stretch of the imagination, the main yardstick by which tennis greatness is evaluated.

That is the Grand Slams, and for someone with as much ability as Ljubicic, on that measure his record is appalling.

sure winning DC is nice.

but there's something about it that just doesn't capture the imagination.
It's the fact that we're trying to create a team sport out of an individual sport, or maybe it's something else.

but for some reason, it's tough to embrace it. at least for me.

No, I imply that player without DC win shouldn't be there.
Your thread title is "not enough credit for Ljubo" - what does one thing have anything to do with the other? Ljubicic got plenty of credit for what he did in 2005 to win the Cup. Your opinion that people shouldn't be considered GOAT without a DC title is wholly irrelevant to the credit for Ljubicic gets for anything :lol:

Ljuber needs to "consolidate" if you will, or BACK UP, his DC performance with some solid GS results in order to make it seem like it wasn't a complete fluke. Other than that, Ljubicic has completely folded on the big stages.

and there's no reason to think he'll ever turn it around at the Majors

big deal, he was No. 3 in the world for quite some time. Those results mean nothing. SF of French was impressive, but that's it.
