True, but Federer also had 5 years without Djokovic and ~5 years where Nadal wasn’t yet a great grass/hard court player. Djokovic and Nadal have never played without two all-time greats as rivals.

Federer had 12 Grand Slams going into 2008, which was roughly the time Nadal and Djokovic started to emerge.

And I hate to admit this because Federer is definitely my personal favorite.

EDIT: I may have misunderstood your post. Yes, from a head to head standpoint, Federer was definitely disadvantaged due to being out of his prime, especially against Djokovic.

Right, I just meant for the H2H. Federer caught the tail end of Agassi and Sampras and was 8-3 and 1-0 vs them respectively. Obviously he benefitted on that end.

Update after 2021 Wimbledon:

Federer - 20
Nadal - 20
Djokovic - 20

If Djokovic wins the US Open and takes all four grand slams in the same calendar year, it’s going to make the GOAT debate a lot more one-sided.
