Today...

ANother example of the consistent excellence of Roger Federer.

To be some and be blinded to the fact that borg, johnny mac, etc never performed like this for so long is beyond ridicule... it is insane.

You've moved to the dark side and jumped on Fed's bandwagon?  :rofl_2:

There is no more reasoning as to Federer's continued brilliance at age 33. You can't point to any previous GOAT candidate in the Open Era and find an equivalent. Borg was done at 26, JMac stopped making slam finals after 26, Sampras was done at 31. This is just beyond belief.
Then we will fight in the shade.

I have always loved watching Roger play.  I really am not a 'fan' like most people.  Someone winning or losing in particular doesn't bother me.  In all of sports the only teams / individuals I can say I legitimately dislike are the Lakers, Packers, Yankees, Jimmy Connors, and Floyd maywaether in no particular order.

Agreed wholeheartedly. 

To compare Rog, like Mertov tried, to a Chang is just plain stupid.

But to even try and compare him to a Borg is pretty silly as well.  You can't use "what if's" with players.  You have to use their resume.  And roger's resume crushes Borg.

Only if you dismiss career win % in slams due to Borg quitting at 26. I'm pretty sure Fed's was up in the high 30s at 26 when he won his 12th slam. But Borg did quit when the going got tough, he certainly would not have kept that 41% winning rate if he'd played to 31-32.

Sorry chrissy822, but what things? I don't believe in GOATs. We were debating a similar thing on MTF. No matter how you look at if Fed is the most successful player (that's the term I like to use) in tennis history. Many Rafa fans love to use that h2h thingy, but you play against the whole field, not one player ... Rafa might win more, when everything is said and done, but right now Fed is da man.
