2011-2021 Djokovic dinasty ! 19 slams, almost 50% 👏🏼👏🏼❣️🏆🥇 proud of him !
Damn, Federer spent 19 years on top 10. That's insane !
Those trio dominance in 15 years is also unbelievable !
Federer is the first player to hit 7000 points
Nadal s the first player to hit 15.000 points
Novak is the first player to hit 16.790 points
When those trio took a rest, only Andy Murray can hit no.1
Thank u for this video. I lov this masterpiece
Nadal is the only player that has been into the Top 10 since 2005, just incredible 👑

The way Djokovic climbed to number 1 in 2018 is one of the most epic comebacks in the history of sports.

I never thought anyone could top Pete's 7 Wimbledon's, nor Borg's dominance at Roland Garros, nor beat Federer at a slam finals (outside RG) see 2004-07....Records are made to be broken. The Big 3 are in a league of their OWN.
Nadal’s rivalry against Federer is more iconic, but the biggest rivalry is probably between Nadal and Djokovic

Djokovic en un año llegó a doblar en puntaje a su más cercano perseguidor, además desde el año 2011 que viene liderando este ranking, increíble!!!

In Federer's earlier career, he didn't have any opponents that come close. Djokovic and Nadal have much more challenges to win a slam compared to Roger.
João Nuno Ferreira
João Nuno Ferreira:
2 things come right to mind: 1) how much long Nadal has passed at number two; 2) Much respect to Murray. In this brutal era, won 3 majors, 2 olympic gold medals, 1 Davis Cup, 14 Masters and became No 1!
Djokovic 16.790 in 2016... Beyond this world.

In Serbia we don't say GOAT, we say NOVAK ĐOKOVIĆ, and i think it's beautiful🇷🇸🇷🇸🇷🇸
Did you know that Novak in Serbian means the "new one". :)
After that elbow injury he came and won further 7 Slam . This IS one of the biggest comback after getting injured and after 30 winning Slam which IS the most by aby tennis player after getting 30
Novak is simply the greatest , he won held all slams on 3 different surface at once. That record will never be broken🤷🏾‍♂️

11:27 Djokovic climbed back to # 1 by making a ladder of all other top 10 players
At one point Djokovic's ranking points were higher than number 2 and 3 combined 🙈
Among all of the greatness showed, there is one name that stick out. Novak Djokovic.

That 16950 by Djokovic is scary - holding 10/14 of the big tournaments at once! Same number as Rafa has won EVER (has not won WTF, Miami, Shanghai or Paris)
Djokovic destroyng tennis since 2011 and counting... It took him just one decade to absolute decimate the competition and break almost every record there is out there... The most impressive part? He did all that during the GOLDEN ERA of this sport... playing against the GREATEST players to grace courts... and on top of that... against HOSTILE crowds... It just doesnt get any more GOAT than this...

Novak Djokovic the goat...2nd is Federer. 3rd Nadal

20 gs for nadal and fed

And player of the decade
19 gs for novak and weeks at number one 327

No contest novak Djokovic is the deal

I wish you'd have started in the 70s or 80s so we could see how players like Connors, McEnroe, Borg and Lendl stacked up. I remember thinking that Connors was on his way out, then he came back and was #1 again.

It is just impossible to bring the best Djokovic to the earlier 2000s or the best Federer to the latest 2010s. It is what it is. The rivals are good or bad depending on the guy they have in front of them. There is no such a "weak era". In the end, the best is the one you enjoyed the most.
When ive seen Isner peeking into top 10 a little made me happy. I still remember when ive seen his serve the first time. Just brutal

About fedex
He consistently beat subpar competition, often even struggling against some of it. He really did not have any truly impressive slam victories because he always got extremely lucky breaks along the way. Let's take a look:

2003 Wimbledon: Beat his pigeon one-dimensional server Roddick in the SF, then freak'n Philippoussis in the final. A headcase from a prior era who had never made it beyond the QF before.

2004 Australian Open: Beat his pigeon pusher-Hewitt in the 4th round, headcase Nalbandian in the QF, clay court specialist Ferrero in the semis, and an exhausted Safin in the final.

2004 Wimbledon: Again, the two notable players he beat were Roddick and Hewitt, guys who simply weren't that good. One a one-dimensional hard server with terrible net approaches, poor returns, and mediocre movement. The other a finesse passing shot specialist who couldn't hurt you if you didn't serve-and-volley. Sebastien Grosjean in the SF was not a particularly tough semi. And Roddick might have beaten him if not for the rain delay.

2004 US Open: Old, congenital back injury Agassi who couldn't move was his QF opponent, and he took Federer to 5 tough sets. Tim Henman was the SF opponent - past his prime and a limited serve-and-volley player whose best surface was grass, not HC. And then it's good 'ole Hewitt in the final.

2005 Wimbledon: Once again, it's Hewitt and Roddick. His QF opponent was Fernando Gonzalez, who was not very good on grass. And Hewitt and Roddick were weaker in 05 than they were before.

2005 US Open: Headcase Nalbandian in the QF, good 'ole Hewitt in decline in the SF, and old, horrible back Agassi, who couldn't move, in the final, scaring him early in the match before the back became too much.

2006 Australian Open: Easiest draw in slam history, and Federer had tons of trouble with marginal opponents. He should have lost at least 3 of the matches he won. First he had to go 5 with Tommy Haas. Then generic counterpunch baseliner with mediocre movement and a below average serve in Davydenko gave him all he could handle in the QF, having multiple set points to go up 2 sets to 1. Then journeyman Kiefer took a set off him in the SF, and then Baghdatis was up a set and a break, nearly 2 breaks, on Federer in the final. Marcos Baghdatis, who struggled to stay in the Top 100 in subsequent seasons. And the fact that Baghdatis was able to go through Roddick and Nalbandian (and Ljubicic) tells you everything you need to know about the strength of Roddick and Nalbandian as competitors. They got ousted by a marginal Top 100 player in a Grand Slam.

2006 Wimbledon: Another ridiculously weak draw. Jonas Bjorkman at age 34 in the semi-final. It doesn't get much weaker than that. And he was a serve-and-volley throwback in an era where the slow conditions mean they get eaten alive with passing shots. Then he played Nadal in only his 4th ever grass court tournament in the final, and nearly lost. Nadal was serving for the 2nd set and would have gone up 2 sets to 1 had he not choked. And the opening set bagel was clearly Nadal's nerves getting to him as well. Mario Ancic, his QF opponent, may have been a good grass court prospect if it were 10 years earlier. He was another guy playing in the wrong era for his game, making him fodder.

2006 US Open: After the easiest first 4 rounds a player has ever played in Grand Slam history, he went on to play zero-tactics ball basher James Blake, generic baseliner with no serve, limited power, and mediocre movement Davydenko, and his old buddy, Andy Roddick.

2007 Australian Open: He played no-weapons Tommy Robredo in the QF, his old buddy Roddick in the lopsided SF, and fluke Grand Slam finalist Gonzo in the final...and nearly lost the first set. He played baby Djokovic in the 4th round...a guy who was nowhere near what he would become.

2007 Wimbledon: Got a walkover on Tommy Haas in the 4th round, then lost a set to post-chicken pox Juan Carlos Ferrero in the QF, who was a journeyman at that point. Then he played freak'n Richard Gasquet in the semi-final. Then in the final it was a rematch with Nadal that he got extremely lucky to pull out, winning 2 tiebreak sets and losing 2 sets cleanly. Nadal was injured towards the end of the match. Without that, Nadal probably wins and ends the streak one year earlier.

2007 US Open: Lost a set to Feliciano Lopez in the 4th round. Played old buddy Roddick yet again in the QF, then generic no serve, mediocre movement, no power Davydenko in the SF again, then young, inexperienced, developing Djokovic in the final, who nearly won the match in straight sets but blew multiple set points in the first 2 sets. Djokovic had beaten him in Montreal a couple tournaments earlier.

2008 US Open: Had to go 5 to beat Igor Andreev, a clay court specialist. Then beat qualifier journeyman Gilles Muller in the QF, then Djokovic in the SF (maybe his only semi-impressive victory in a Grand Slam), and an exhausted Murray in his first ever Grand Slam final. Djokovic was a fairly impressive win, but he wasn't the player he became in 2011, and he was coming off getting many in the crowd against him after his dispute with Andy Roddick, whom he beat the round before.

2009 French Open: Lucky that Soderling upset Nadal. Had major problems with Acasuso, dropped a set to Mathieu, was down 2 sets and nearly got broken to allow Tommy Haas to serve for the match in round 4, then was down 2 sets to 1 to Juan Martin Del Potro in the SF. Won the final over rookie slam finalist Soderling, who had never beaten him before.

2009 Wimbledon: Played servebot Ivo Karlovic in the QF, freak'n Tommy Haas in the SF, and nearly lost to his old buddy Roddick in the final. A blown volley in the 2nd set likely cost Roddick the match.

2010 Australian Open: Had to basically cheat with a bathroom break to break Davydenko's momentum (and help clear the late sun rays) when he was getting streamrolled in the QF. Then played an exhausted Tsonga in the SF after Tsonga had upset Djokovic. Then played Murray in the final, who was still a headcase at the time, trying to win his first Grand Slam.

2012 Wimbledon: Djokovic in 2012 was not the same player after his grandfather died. He played weak Youzhny, who has never beaten him in an ATP match to this day, in the QF, completing one of the easiest first 5 matches ever played in a slam. Then in the final, he capitalized on Murray's nervousness trying to win his first slam and become the first British man in a long time to win Wimbledon. Along the way, Federer went down 2 sets to 0 to journeyman Benneteau in the 3rd round, coming mere points away from losing in the 4th set tiebreak.

So when you really look at it, there are asterisks everywhere. Federer won 17 slams but it honestly feels like he should have won 0. ZERO. None. Not even kidding. It's surreal that he's been able to win this many. But the reality of tennis was he was competing over and over again against the likes of Roddick and Hewitt, as well as Nalbandian and Davydenko. If you don't think highly of those 4 players (and I don't), you're not going to think highly of Federer. He beat pre-prime Djokovic and Nadal, and he took advantage of Murray's early struggles with mental toughness.

In actuality, Federer is the guy who wins slams when the others falter. He's not the guy who beats others at their best. Others beat him at their best when they're right. Safin in 05 AO. Nadal in 08 Wimbledon, 05-07 and 11 FOs, 09 AO, 12 AO, and 14 AO. Djokovic in 14 Wimbledon, 08 AO, 11 AO, 10 USO, and 11 USO, 12 FO. Murray in 13 AO

It’s very clear that Djokovic is the GOAT. He’s consistently dominated the last 10 years, with Nadal and Federer competing against him. Federer dominated 4 years most, at a time when the players weren’t so good (save for an up and coming Nadal).

Marcelo Rios was number one for two periods. March and August 1998. He took it from Sampras, he got it back, then it was Rios again and finally Sampras took it again. In the video it only appears once in number 1. Anyway, wonderful video. Great job.

Nadal and Federer: oh fuck he's back
Everybody just keeps hating Roger Federer so viciously in this comment section. I don't really understand why. Djokovic and Federer respect each other, they kept joking together at the Laver Cup. In the stadiums, Federer seems so popular, but on Youtube, he just keeps getting more and more hate. Why?
And if Federer had broken Sampras' records so quickly, and Djokovic broke Federer's records, what if the next tennis great breaks all the Djokovic records?
