Roger Federer is not familiar with the feeling of watching another player dominate men's tennis like Novak Djokovic currently is.

Federer is the No. 3 ranked player in the world, which would be considered incredible for many. However, Federer is considered by some to be the greatest player of all time—or GOAT for short.

With that distinction, it's hard for people to watch Federer unable to beat the best players of his generation with any kind of regularity.

Regardless of whether or not Federer returns to the top of the rankings or wins any more Grand Slams, he's still the most complete player of all time.

He absolutely dominated the game from 2004-07, losing fewer than 10 matches each year during the four-year stretch. He was only defeated 24 teams in that span.

Now, Federer is looking to bounce back. He's not happy with his 28-7 start, and he has a return to the top in his sights.

Can Federer make it back to the top of the rankings?

Here's 10 reasons he won't start paving a path at the French Open.
