He denied him these marks: two CYGS, six consecutive wimbledons,
career GS, having 17 or 18 slams.

Or can Federer force his will and write his name in history?

Roger will have to wait til he plays a non-Rafa type.

He has been stopping it for several years and will continue to do so.

His name is already in history.

And if Nadal keeps it up, they might between the two of them kicking Borg out
of Tier I, if you share the whisperian view that tier I shall not be too
crowded.

It can be crowded if the top group have similar 7543 score, ie within
say 10 points.

At present Tier 1 is;

Sampras 80
Federer 69
Borg 59
Tilden 56
Laver 55


Of course Laver with 2 calendar slams is due bonus points so really tier
1 should now be Sampras, Federer & Laver.

Borg is a whopping 21 pts behind Sampras so that means eventual
relegation to tier 2, as you correctly concluded.

Emerson is best of tier 2 with 50 points, even though he has 12 slams
(poor quality mix with 6 AOs).

stop it.
