That's currently shared by roger federer. Rafa doll in yoka vich or jovic is thirty. Four and has a great chance to surpass his to longtime foes. We spent a lot of time talking about tiger woods. Chasing jack nicklaus and that major but in america. Men's tennis majors aren't a topic. That's because none of the big three are american. And we've invested in serena williams but it's a tricky record to wrap your head around jovic better than pete sampras or rod laver bjorn borg the sport. They played a day as a whole lot different than it was thirty or forty years ago. Health medicine allow these players to compete for a longer period of time and the racket. Certainly help as well. We all know for sure that yokich jovic is an all time player and all time athlete no matter how much we don't talk about tennis and him also to be able to do it. In the era where you have nadal and federer who have one thirty nine majors between them and then you get djokovic. Who i mean. It's pretty incredible that you're able to win. It'd be like if somebody played in the tiger woods era and they one nine majors but they didn't tiger just dominated everybody. These are two of the greatest players of all time. You can make a case that federal is the greatest player of all time but in his era joke a bitch has nineteen grand slams. Having rivals helps didn't feel like pete sampras had rival. they're connors mcenroe bjorn borg yvonne. Lindow you know having that rivalry. That's what you wanna chris. Evert with martina. I don't know if serena's really had arrival but to be able to have. That rivalry makes those victory. Stand down even more and you have nadal. Who's the greatest clay court player of all time. And you dusty moth in four sets federer the to me is still the greatest player the although you can make a case in a different air rod laver was the greatest player of all time. But with what better. And i the the reason why i go back to federer is when i asked pete sampras about this years ago i said what do you think of federer and he said he will attempt shots that i can't even think about like i don't even have that in my imagination and he's he's attempting though shots pulling those off. That says an awful lot about here's sampras. With what sixteen grand slam events looking at roger federer and just the fact that what. He does how he does it. He's doing things that i wouldn't even think of doing is far as a shot there but joe bitches incredible i mean really at. That's it didn't look like he was working up sweat and he always looks like he's he's visiting a country club. He's going into play tennis at the club. Sherzer perfectly starched increases in his his shirt that he was wearing his hair. He doesn't look out of sorts at all whereas the doll did. The doll looked like he played. You know ten sets but a. That's pretty impressive. That's nineteen majors. He's thirty four years of age but to have these three. That's remarkable now. You go back to boxing where you had sugar ray tommy hearns. You had marvelous marvin hagler to win. Titles in that era. Because that's who you had to go through. That's pretty incredible now. They don't face each other's many times as you do in tennis but what joe kebich did yesterday was pretty pretty impressive. Yup oh you're right about jokes..

"Partners, numbering nearly 400 cities around America. Uh, You had, uh, Some tennis yesterday that I I was watching and I was kind of going in and out. You got Yoka vich who, uh, won the French open his 19th major, and that's one shy of the all time record that's currently shared by Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal in Djokovic or Djokovic is 34 has a great chance to surpass his two longtime foes. You know, we spent a lot of time talking about Tiger Woods chasing Jack Nicklaus and that major But in America men's tennis majors are in a topic. That's because none of the big Three are American. And, uh, we've invested in Serena Williams. But it's a tricky record to wrap your head around. Is Djokovic better than Pete Sampras or Rod Laver? Bjorn Borg? The sport they play today is a whole lot different than it was 30 or 40 years ago. Health medicine allow these players to compete for a longer period of time. And, uh, the racket certainly help as well. We all know for sure that, uh Djokovic or Djokovic is an all time player and all time athlete, no matter how much we do or don't talk about tennis and him Also to be able to do it in the era where you have Nadal and Federer, who have won 39 majors between them. And then you get Uh, Djokovic, who I mean it's pretty incredible that you're able to win it be like if somebody played in the Tiger Woods era, and they won. Nine majors. But they didn't because Tiger just dominated everybody. These are two of the greatest players of all time. You can make a case that Federer is the greatest player of all time, but in his era Djokovic. Has 19 Grand slams. Having rivals helps Didn't feel like Pete Sampras had a rival Their Connors, McEnroe, Bjorn Borg, Yvonne Lindo. Having that rivalry. That's what you want. Chris Everett with Martina I don't know if Serena's really had arrival, but to be able to have that rivalry makes those victory stand out even more. And you have Nadal, who is the greatest clay court player of all time. And you dust him off in four sets. Federer, uh, to me is still the greatest player. Although you can make a case in a different era, Rod Laver was the greatest player of all time. But with what Federer and I the reason why I go back to Federer is when I asked Pete Sampras about this years ago. I said, you know, what do you think of Federer and he said he will attempt shots that I can't even think about like. I don't even have that in my imagination, And he's He's attempting those shots and pulling those off. That says an awful lot about you know, here's Sampras with what 16 Grand Slam events looking at Roger Federer and just the fact that what he does how he does it. He's doing things that I wouldn't even think of doing as far as shot there. But, uh Djokovic is incredible. I mean, really at that. It didn't look like he was working up a sweat, and he always looks like he's he's visiting a country club. He's going into play tennis at the club. You know his short, sir, perfectly starched increases in his his shirt that he was wearing his hair. He he doesn't look out of swords at all. Where is the doll did The doll looked like he had played, You know, 10 sets But that's pretty impressive. That's 19 majors. He's 34 years of age. But to have these three That's remarkable. Now you go back to boxing where you had sugar Ray Tommy Hearns. You had marvelous Marvin Hagler like to win titles in that era, because that's who you had to go through. That's pretty incredible. Now. They don't face each other as many times as you do in tennis. But what? Uh Djokovic did yesterday was pretty, uh, pretty impressive. Yeah, You're right about Djokovic. She doesn't seem to be a big sweater and remember early his career he wore. He went up top button He used to have, like the Polo shirt. He Yeah, he was so, uh, composed. He would go top button like I don't even need to unbutton twice to get you take it out. Look, I'm looking at pictures of him. He looks like he's it's the fifth set. He looks He's just starting the match. Don't make me unbutton this next button. I don't want to do that to you know time, Yes, McLovin. So I think this is appropriate impossible to great athlete like if we put a pole as he overrated, underrated, properly rated or impossible to rate because if he passed his Federer in the major records Do we have to say he's better than Federer or And you said You said you can't compare Murad labor. I don't I think he's impossible to rate. Yes, I think I would say Federer is still the best player that I've seen on all the surfaces, his athleticism. But Nadal fascinates me. Probably more one dimensional with with clay and that that's what stood out even more is That he lost on clay. He doesn't lose on clay. And the fact that Djokovic was able to beat him in four sets was was really remarkable and build a bitch was down two sets yesterday. So you down 02. And then all of a sudden it's like, um, Yeah, alright. Gave the crowd you know, it's almost like when a Floyd Mayweather carried one of the Paul brothers like you're just like, Yeah. All right. I think it's time to end this now we're done. And he just went boom boom boom, And that was it. All right..
