Especially since he would be beating the current and former #1 to do
so? He may also have a ridiculous record a la Mac 84 by the end of the
year.

No, because he would still only have 5 total slams. It would be one
hell of an accomplishment, but that alone would not vault him remotely
above Nadal or especially Federer.

I hate the GOAT talk. It is so stupid. Djokovic is the best player
right now, but he ain't no GOAT yet. Far from it. Let him start to win
slams and lots of them and then we can talk.

It's a hypothetical question. If he wins all 4 against the likes of
Fed & Nadal wouldn't that be unbelievable?

Absolutely but it will not make him the GOAT, whatever the heck GOAT
is. I don't think you can say anybody is the GOAT. Greatest of their
era, yes, but greatest of all time? Hard to say that because of the
differences between eras.

Here's another hypothetical.
If I squashed you like a bug, would you stop posting such silly
hypotheticals?  :)
