Wait, Federer and Nadal are still the best and winning these? That was a decade or more ago, they are still at it? No younger players have taken the mantle?

I can't think of anyone better to run the country than a reality TV, business mogul blowhard. Apparently, neither could the democrats.

Djocavic looked prime to take over, but a few injuries have set him back a bit.  That's what makes Federer so great. His durability. He's the oldest Wimbledon winner of the modern era (whatever the hell that means).  There have been spurts where guys like Nadal and Djocavic were better than him. But it never last for long because they get injured.  Federer just keeps plugging along. I'd love to see him with a 20th Slam.


Mine is small, but the head spins.

PEDs

While I don't believe Fed uses PED's, this is a topic of conversation that has been raised in the tennis community often over the last decade. Hell, Federer was one of the people calling for the ATP and tennis anti-doping to be stronger back in 2012.

Guys that use PEDs get hurt, like your boy Tiger.

I could be totally off.. But I feel like it's much easier for the next GOAT to come along in tennis than I do in golf. Why, idk - maybe it just seems easier to dominate in tennis than it does in golf... There is a damn good chance we might not see Jack, or even Tiger, challenged in our lifetimes... Tennis? I would not be surprised to see Rog's records broken before I kick the bucket. :dunno:

I don't know.

 

In tennis, when you have superstar power - you can pretty much pencil them into the semis of most majors.. Along those lines, I'd love to know how many semi final appearances Rog, Nadal and Djokovic have - I bet it's a ton.. That just isn't the case in golf - so much more rare for a super star to be in one of the final groups come Sunday in a major.

 

Looking back, before Jack hit the scenes in the 60's, there was only 1 golfer with double digit major wins.. And since the 60's, there have only been 2 to achieve even that... In tennis, the board is flooded with double digit major winners. With 3 active players currently still racking up titles as we speak... The #'s certainly suggest it's more likely to see the next GOAT in tennis than golf, no?

you killed it...tennis seeds, golf doesn't. They play against everyone and differentiating conditions. Tennis is played in the exact same box every time. The difficulty to dominate is not even close, its golf by a mile.
