      The GOAT? FZD=Djokovic & ML=Federer

      Watching the World Cup last week and the ITTF Finals this week, I couldn't help but notice the similarities between FZD and Novak Djokovic on the one hand, and ML and Roger Federer on the other.


      1. Federer and ML are both moving closer to the end of outstanding careers during which they've both been widely regarded as the GOAT of their sports.
      2. Djokovic and FZD are still in the peak phase of their careers and becoming increasingly dominant. Not quite at GOAT status yet, but not far off.
      3. Federer and ML can still, on the right day, beat Djokovic and FZD. And, on almost any day, they'll beat anyone else!
      4. But probably 7 times out of 10 you'd expect Djokovic and FZD to beat Federer and ML going forward.


      I wonder how long it'll be before we're talking about FZD as the GOAT? If he keeps playing like this it can't be far off.

      FZD has to win grandslam first.

      For sure! And if he keeps playing like this I wouldn't bet against him doing that...
