Now that the year is over for Nole, what do you think? Who had the better year?

Federer 3 slams, 1 slam final, undefeated at the TMC, 12 titles 92-5 ( 6 titles post Wimbledon)

Djokovic 3 slams, 1 slam semi, 2 losses RR of the WTF, 10 titles, 70-6 ( 2 titles post Wimbledon)

The former thread

The other poll was deemed unfair because it was created before the year was done. Now it is. And the poll is public. :)

But I don't understand, Nole had more than 100 votes in the other thread...

I am sure those individuals still feel the same way, otherwise why would they have voted for Nole in the first place?

Congratulation for the correct use of the term Djokotard. Noletard or Fakertard would have been also acceptable.

When the thread was opened, Nole's season was superior, that's why :shrug: He performed poorly in the last two months - the bad part is the last two months are also a part of the season. The good part is that they are not so important part of the season :cool: Anyway, Fed can have his record, 3 slams + everything else Nole did is good enough for us :D

schadenfreude is one of the greatest pleasures in life you know

Fed 2006. But not by far. To use a soccer metaphor, he won it with a goal on the last minute of the match.

Wait five years. When your man is still a top dog, but being challenged by new young guns. The losing and inconsistencies increase. The despair of defeat snatched from the jaws of victory with wasted match points. Watching a great of the game lose when before they'd win easily. Throwing away 2 set leads. Missing a gazillion break points. You'll know how Fedtards feel then. We know success. We've celebrated brilliance. We've seen greateness. But when your man falters, loses to guys ranked 10-20 in the world in a slam, throws away winning positions, serves like a WTA player, then you know why people become a little, shall we say, insecure.

Seems to me that Federer dominated the second half...

This is not even debatable.

2006 is the greatest

92-5?

T H I S I S S P A R T A !
I am not here to gloat or create drama but some will argue that John McEnroe states that 2011 is the best year he has seen a player play and use that as a source of argument, others may add on to the credibility that Pete Sampras agrees.

One thing that some have pointed out on other threads and comes again to attention is the fact that 3 out of the top four players were so banged up and out of shape for this year end championships and then some argue that these are the best athletes of all time. For starters they are all under what 26 and they are already all banged up? Will they even be in the top 10 by age 28? Here we see how Federer has been blessed with being mostly injury free and how his more proactive game style has served him to age well in tennis.

By the way Novak did have a significant achievement in winning 5 master series events in one year and I believe that will remain unrivaled for a few seasons, certainly that's one out of Rogers reach.

I think it should also be taken into account that Fed played a lot more matches in 2006 - about 20 more, that's not just a little bit, that's the equivalent of about 4 tournaments.
