"Right now, I see a huge difference between Novak and the rest of the guys," said Lopez, who advanced to Friday's quarterfinals of the Fayez Sarofim & Co. U.S. Men's Clay Court Championship with a 7-6 (4), 6-1 victory over Lukas Lacko on Thursday. "And it's the way he wins. That's so important. He's giving 50, 60 percent (and winning). But, when he needs more, he finds it.


"I've been taught since I was a kid you always have a chance to win, but when you play against Novak now … a lot of things have to happen for you to have any chance. When Roger and Rafa were at their best, they weren't as good as Novak (is now)."

The guy who is Nadal's countryman and has grown up playing against Federer has come down and said neither of them were as good as Novak is now. Pretty bold comments by Deliciano. I mean he is friends with Nadal so it has some extra credibility because of how controversial it would seem. This is a very interesting and long article by the way. I took out one juicy quote, but I recommend everyone read the whole thing. Sock in particular has some interesting things to say about Djokovic as well saying that everyone wants to measure themselves against him and how big a deal it is now in the lockeroom that Djokovic owns them. They don't like it, they don't like one bit; they all want to get him and bad.

That's not saying he's the GOAT - it's saying that his level is higher than his predecessors - which it probably is.

Saying it is higher than Roger and Rafa ever, that is plainly what he is saying Julius; then you don't dispute that. That is all I am saying as well.

Can we put this in the GOAT sticky and lock the topic, since now the debate has been settled? Run

Perhaps Gilles Simon has an opinion, too? Laugh

I don't know. Who should you believe? Socal and "Deliciano" or Federer? Federer claimed that Rafa was the most talented. I'm going with Federer he's a bit of an expert as far as tennis goes king

Laugh Really ??  What the hell does Fed know Whistle

unless it suits your agenda, would anyone care what Feli's opinion was... had it been to the contrary and he had said that Novak would never be the GOAT in a million years. would we have had an article to discuss it...
I don't fink so !!!

Any one with less than 5 GS should shut-up about any kind of GOAT talk.

Do the three of you want an autograph? It seems all you can talk about is me. Roger would say Rafa is the greatest he always did have problem handling topspin on his pretty little one hander.
