The pandemic destroys Federer's chance of an undisputed claim on GOAThood. Djodals chances will always be considered into the discussion as well as Federer's weak era vulturing when there was no Corona interruption.
Difficult but interesting times ahead of us in terms of tennis discussions. And in all seriousness we all knew that Djodal > Federer is gonna happen at some point.

Oh No. Look at AO 2016 - Simon in prime, Nishikori, Federer and Murray in very decent forms. It was the toughest draw in many years, and Djokovic Won.

The only good match he played was federer. Murray was bad all torunament and made the final on the back of a laughable draw and raonic‘s injury. Nishikori basically gave up before the match even started. And you have to be very desperate to pass off Simon as a tough opponent. remember djokovic made 100 errors in that match and still won. But I give you that it was probably his most earned slam in all of those years

Novak „Asterisk” Djokovic will never be regarded the GOAT. All his weeks at no1 and potential YE#1 in 2019 will be fake forever.

Nishikori was a joke, Federer was clearly not his best and Murray was a useless. Now Djokovic would have won anyway had these men been in better form, but don't act like it was a strong tournament because it clearly wasn't

Oh my God, there is no GOAT and never will be. It’s only greatest of their generation. As for AO 2016, Bendikori bent over as usual, Federer was cheeks except for the third set, and Murray is Djokovic’s pigeon in slams. Djokovic has many better earned slams than that one.

What about djokovic‘s Weak era vulturing in 2015-2016 and 2018-2019? Especially the latter where his biggest rival was a 37-38 year old? Djokotards and their double standards.
So, 2018-2019 Nadal 3Majors, Federer 0 majors, yet somehow Federer is Djokovic's biggest rival? Only in the world of a Federer fan do we get such bizarre comments.

Without doubt you are correct. If tennis ends today, Federer will be remembered for never solving the Nadal factor over 5 sets (4-9 h2h) and for 40-15 v Djokovic W2019.

W 2008 and W 2019 were career defining for all three, sadly Federer on his best surface lost both. Bottom line. 3rd of his era.

You can say that for sure. Federer lost to Nadal and Djokovic at his best slam but never beat Nadal at RG or Djoker at AO post 2007

Lol, I'm sure he'll be remembered for winning 5 Wimbledons in a row and 5 USOs in a row. And for winning (at least) 20 grand slams. And for winning over 100 titles. And for playing the most beautiful tennis ever seen.

Great players win and lose. If we're going to define players by their losses only, we might as well say that Rafa will be remembered for being Dustin Brown's pigeon.

Greatness is not only derived from results. Roger will always be #1 for his overall legacy. Even if I believe both Novak and Rafa will catch him eventually, they cannot reach the old man in terms of marketing value and being well known everywhere in the world.

His numbers are also still there. Even after being out of prime for 7 years, he still defends his records quite well. Now with Covid spread, that might even work for him, if all slams get cancelled this year and Novak wins AO 21, then it is 18-19-20 going into FO 21, where Novak and Rafa will be 34/35 already.

I think Nadal is GOAT, but those W losses to unknowns are obvious blemishes.

Yeah, and record for most losses in GS matches, after holding match point/s.

Also, since the emergence of Stan the man in 2013, Stan has amassed four slam wins (including two finals) vs Djokovic, out of seven encounters, Federer zero wins out of six slam encounters.

Djokovic also lost Wimb'13 final to Murray.
