After the Australian Open, the GOAT race between Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic has become even more exciting, with the Serb lifting his eighth trophy in Melbourne to move three Majors behind Roger and two behind Rafa, pushing his closest rivals to the limits and hoping for more of the same in the rest of the year.

Nadal would have been the favorite to grab the 13th trophy at Roland Garros while Federer would have certainly stood a chance at Wimbledon where he had two match points against Novak in the final last July.

Rafael Nadal had the opportunity to catch or pass Roger’s Major tally this season while Novak Djokovic was getting closer and closer to his ultimate record of 310 weeks as world no. 1, with all that having to wait at the moment.
