The Herald seems to be a touch confused with the tennis greats

The Herald has an article about how Novak Djokovic could become one of the three greatest tennis players of all time:

Four-time Australian Open champion Andre Agassi says Novak Djokovic has the chance this year to elevate himself to among possibly the best three tennis players of all time.

Agassi arrived in Australia yesterday and immediately installed Djokovic favourite to land a historic Open men’s hat-trick tomorrow after the Serb demolished world No 4 David Ferrer 6-2, 6-2, 6-1 in the first semifinal.

With Djokovic awaiting the victor of last night’s second semifinal between second seed Roger Federer and third seed Andy Murray – the winners of the past two Grand Slam titles – Agassi said the world No 1 had an obvious edge over his rivals. 

“If there’s three (standout) guys, I always tend to favour the guy who doesn’t have to beat two of them,” said Agassi, on his first visit to Australia since 2005.

Should x collect a fourth Open crown and take his Grand Slam tally to six during an era previously dominated by tennis titans Federer and Rafael Nadal, Agassi said the 25-year-old would be on his way to genuine greatness.

Ok so Nadal is mentioned…but the article is about Djokovic…and the photo was taken in 2010 at the Australian open, so is 3 years out of date.
