Let's face it: With 19 GS titles, including two won this year at 35, and
now a record-smashing 8th Wimbledon title, criticisms of Federer are
just plain silly and make the one issuing them look ridiculous.
 
It's time to Bow to Reality, in the form of Federer. So please, no more
... BOAT stuff, Head to Head stuff, "peak" stuff, etc.
 
As of now, until Nadal or someone else wins 19 slams, Federer is the
undisputed Open Era Greatest, Bestest, Peakest, Longevitiest, and every
other superlative that a player can have.
 
That's just the way it is, as of right now, July 2017.

He's lucky to win one slam per Whisper.

It's well know that you are one of the dimmer bulbs around here, but you
actually confused Federer with Nishikori? Sweet Jeebus.

Stevie Underpants, stick to watching kiddie movies with your little friends. This place is too adult for you.

even tougher for Roger
soccerfan777 <zepfloyes@gmail.com>: Jul 16 09:05AM -0700

He has broken enough records. Not all records can be broken by a single player
"rec.sport.tennis" <rec.sport.tennis@gmail.com>: Jul 16 03:53PM

At best I can see him winning one more slam away from Roland Garros.
Which leaves him needing 3 more FOs to tie with RF. Possible?

Definitely possible for him to win 3 more French Opens. Barring Thiem and maybe Zverev, can't think of anyone who has a decent clay court game.
stephenJ <sjaros3@cox.net>: Jul 16 11:02AM -0500

Nope, Nadal could reach 20+ so Roger better keep playing.

It really is. No excuse for it.
 
Then again maybe it releases all the pent up emotion?
 
Roger better be careful & not feel sorry for him.

Unimpressed by those who criticize a match prediction long after that
match is underway. But then again, your lack of integrity has shown on
numerous occasions these past couple months, so no surprise.

Typical dumb Max. Your comment would have had some force to it had you
made it before the match started. Why not go watch a tape of Steffi and
fantasize about when she used to be GOAT? LMAO!

No it wouldn't be to slams each for the two guys, it will be three slams for the fed and only one slam for Nads because fed would kick his ass all over the place at the U.S. Open

Can't believe he is winning Wimbledon after 5 years. Unbelievable.

It's been a rough 12-months for Djokovic. His head and motivation have left the building.

These things are always subjective.
 
eg Julia Roberts & Elle McPherson did nothing for me, yet are considered
timeless beauties.
