Grand Slam title twice and that is a feat that is so rare, it doesn't have a name. You you gave it a name matt sort of off the cuff, but it might need a better name. I said the other day that he was going for his second lap working title is second lap, but it doesn't sound grand enough. No, no, hana rinsed me quite, didn't come up with a better Alternative tennis podcast. Let us know what Djokovic's second time around the world should be called. A less pithy version of what I'll come up with it. We still got 45 minutes of the podcast to go, I'm sure I can come up with something. But anyway, I feel like that is an underrated record or at least achievement because it's kind of passed me by because of this cumulative number that we're all talking about, of what they'll all end up on that the individual achievements do get lost sometimes that's a heck of a one. Yeah. And I think that there's more of those sort of lost achievements for Djokovic than for the other two. I think holding all four majors at the same time is a bit of a lost achievement. I mean, is that really that materially different to winning a calendar islam? No, it's not, it's just, you know, it's a pretty arbitrary difference really. I suppose you could you could argue the pressure is greater, you know, going to the U. S. Open, holding all three etcetera etcetera. But I think that's an underrated achievement. I think I think winning all the Masters, the Golden Masters, which I also think is an insufficiently grand name for that. The grandmaster, who's what That should be good. I like that. Sure we've had that before, sure we have that one always stands out to me only because when I was at the ATP and we're going back 20 plus years here, there was a communications manager at the time. Now does some work for ESPN called mickey Sing. And he used to talk about that record as being basically unachievable. He would look at Agassi and he would look at sam press and he would say we don't make anything of the possibilities and we're the we don't make anything of the nine, the super nine as they were called at the time, being a thing because that just didn't feel possible and I understand it's not as grand as winning major titles, but that is incredible that he has managed to do all that. It's kind of more of a martina navratilova, chris evert type achievement. I think that and I think it's a quintessential Djokovic achievement because it requires you to be brilliant on all surfaces and his game is made for everything. It requires you to win in in that period in March where you're between slams, you've got a peek at all times of the year. It requires you to win indoors, which the slams don't require you to do a little bit more nowadays with the roofs. But I just think that record has always stood out for me and isn't talked about enough. But if we're taking it back to the slams, winning every slam twice, I think is probably his greatest statistic when you consider he's probably going to be the stand out in the men's side. You know, it's very likely now that he overtakes Federer and Nadal and he'll have that little statistic on this side as well. I think he's changed the narrative this tournament at the french open. He's changed it today. Well, I would say in the last two days, being the dull and winning it today. Look, he was already well on his way. He's taken a huge leap forward in the conversation and the debate. I think in the last 48 hours he said it's the best 48 hours of his life, wow. There has to be a chance that he separates himself at the moment. It feels like now he's in the perfect place to launch the final assault that takes him past them, that they and he ends up on more. But he could go further. I mean, that's that's maybe later in the podcast or another one. But this I agree with you from this past two or three days beating Nadal on his own turf, breaking Nadal down because a number of people have said, yeah, well, Nadal wasn't fit in the fourth set etcetera. I think that's not doing Djokovic justice. I think he broke Nadal down. Why wasn't he fit in the fourth set? I can't get over this idea of Novak Djokovic as a disruptive force in men's tennis. He came along as the third one and I think his most disruptive achievement is that he has a winning record over Federer at Wimbledon. Wimbledon was always considered Federer's patch. What is it? It's 31 so federal one in 2012. And since then, Novak Djokovic has beaten him in three finals and Okay. Nadal owns Roland Garros. No one is saying that Roland Garros is Novak Djokovic's turf historically. I think it's seven to now in the dollars favorite role in garages, but two wins for Novak Djokovic over Nadal. He's the only guy who's been able to do that. He goes to these places and he conquers them on their own patch. Better hasn't been able to do that to Nadal. Nadal did it once. The Federer, but Federer generally has had the better of Nadal at Wimbledon. It's a big deal. I think what Djokovic has done beating the doll and backing it up. It's amazing. Imagine going back to 2000 and eight and the Wimbledon final between Federer and Nadal, where I can't remember matt, you'll be able to tell me exactly how many slams they were each on at the time. Give me a moment. David put you on the spot.
