Analysis: Let Nadal vs. Federer vs. Djokovic GOAT debate go

Analysis: Let Nadal vs. Federer vs. Djokovic GOAT dispute go

Now that the 2020 Grand Slam season is done and Rafael Nadal is connected with Roger Federer at 20 significant champions, the most for a male in tennis history, followed by Novak Djokovic at 17, some may be lured to revive the discussion about which is the “Greatest of All-Time.”

The fact is, everybody needs to simply let that GOAT dispute go.

Attempting to come up with an agreement choice is ridiculous – specifically now, when the Big 3 are still active – and, more to the point, unneeded.

Why demand selecting one when we should value, appreciate and raise all of them?

2 weeks prior to Nadal trounced Djokovic 6-0, 6-2, 7-5 Sunday to make a 13th prize at the French Open and capture Federer in the Slam standings, Serena Williams was asked to examine the significance of such an accomplishment.

Williams owns 23 significant songs prizes, the most by anybody in the expert period and 2nd to Margaret Court’s all-era requirement of 24.

“You can’t compare two people that are equally great. Roger – I mean, he’s Roger Federer. I think that says enough. So, you know, it’s like, I don’t understand why people want to pit, ‘Who’s this? Who’s that?’ They both have spectacular careers that 99% of people can only dream of. … Every single credit and every single thing that they get, they absolutely deserve it,” Williams stated. “I’m a big fan of both, to be honest.”

Absolutely nothing incorrect with that.

Likewise absolutely nothing incorrect with selecting one to cheer for, to like the very best. That’s what fandom is everything about.

Those partial to Federer, Nadal or Djokovic can construct a case.

“I’m a man of numbers,” stated Ivan Lendl, who won 8 Slam titles from 1984-90. “And so to me, the guy who wins the most majors is going to probably be viewed as the best ever. Who is it right now? … It’s still undecided.”

Nadal has his 20, a minimum of one at each Slam and a minimum of one in each of 3 years, 2000s, 2010s, 2020s; his 13 at Roland Garros are more than anybody won at any competition; he leads Federer 24-16 head-to-head; he leads Djokovic 5-4 in Grand Slam finals.

Federer has his 20 and a profession Slam, too; he holds the record for many weeks at No. 1 in the ATP rankings; his overalls for trip titles (103) and match wins (1,242) are the greatest of the group.

Djokovic’s 17 significant titles makes him the just other guy with more than 14, and he, like his competitors, owns a profession Slam, and like Nadal, has actually won one in 3 years; he leads the head-to-head series with both Nadal (29-27) and Federer (27-23); he’s won the most Masters 1000s and done so two times at each occasion, while nobody else even has one title from each at that level; he is getting on Federer in weeks at No. 1.

Their abilities, designs and characters use something for everybody.

“They all play different. They all love their different surfaces, different conditions. Novak is still obviously in reach for the Slam count, as well,” American professional Jack Sock stated. “You can’t really put your finger on one guy. … They’re all GOATs in their own way.”

Federer’s serve and his net video game stick out; he’s been best on Wimbledon’s lawn.

Nada’s lefty forehand and court protection stick out; he’s been best on the French Open’s red clay.

Djokovic’s return and backhand stick out; he’s been best on the Australian Open’s difficult courts.

“These three guys showed throughout their career (what) great champions they are, no matter the conditions, no matter the atmosphere, no matter anything,” 2014 U.S. Open winner Marin Cilic stated. “They are able to sustain everything and to fight through difficulties, which is a great virtue of champions.”

There are, to be sure, other concerns for tennis fans to contemplate in 2021:

– Can Williams, 39, stay healthy sufficient to continue to compete for Slam success?

– Which of the young current ladies’s significant champs – Iga Swiatek, 19; Bianca Andreescu, 20; Sofia Kenin, 21; Naomi Osaka, 22; Ash Barty, 24 – will become the very best?

– Can U.S. Open champ Dominic Thiem, 27, different himself even more from the up-and-coming guys?

– Will somebody else – Daniil Medvedev, 24; Alexander Zverev, 23; Stefanos Tsitsipas, 22; Andrey Rublev, 22; Denis Shapovalov, 21; Casper Ruud, 21; Felix Auger-Aliassime, 20; Jannik Sinner, 19 – be the beside break through?

Still, there’s absolutely nothing incorrect with continuing to concentrate on the Big 3.

No other way to understand just how much longer Federer – 39 and coming off a set of knee operations that sidelined him for the U.S. Open and French Open – Nadal, 34, and Djokovic, 33, will deal with each other and ply their specific skills on their sport’s most significant phases.

Be grateful for whatever we get the remainder of the method. Appears safe to state there never ever will be anything like it once again.
