Media trying to force stats of woman’s golf, basketball, hockey, tennis, football together with the men and then comparing non-relevant stats is not productive. It’s sideshow trivia. Like how the stats show the US Woman’s national team is better over the last 20 years than any men’s soccer team. Or how the WNBA “warrants” equal pay with the NBA under “equal work for equal pay”.

More relevant to Novak, his 2023 results meant, so far:
1. Triple Career Slam.
2. Back to #1 again.
3. First two on the calendar year Grand Slam –
4. Most wins against top 10 players – 250.
5. Widening his “big titles” lead (Masters+Olympic gold+ATP Championships + Slams) Dokovic 67 trophies, Nadal 59, Federer 54, next is Sampras at 30.
6. Most Slams so far at 23.

****Never seems to be time to rest on laurels! Wimbledon, fight Alcaraz for #1 as long as possible. Carlos is the better player, IMO, but has more points to defend, so a year-end #1 is possible for Novak.
If Novak wins Wimbledon, we will be back to the hype and frenzy..If not, USO and build up are still very important. Can’t ignore Masters. Or ATP championships, where he could be the only one with 7.****

Nole has a good chance to stay #1 until November and crack 400 number, he doesn’t defend one single point until Tel Aviv.

I am not sure how good Alcaraz game is for a grass, it takes time to master grass court game, if Nole can do better than Alcaraz at Wimbledon than he is safe bet to stay #1 well into November and maybe finish the year as #1.

That’s a long way ahead, let’s focus on Wimbledon, one step at the time.
