Now Nadal is arguably "a bit" closer to achieving a Carrer Golden Slam (something only Agassi can presume of), plus the fact he is only 22 and dominating the game and it is likely he'll win quite a few more Grand Slams surpassing Andre's mark of 8 (he just needs 3 to tie him right now)... can Rafa be considered a potential (notice: potential) candidate for being the GOAT?
I guess he is.
Well this year Fed "just" needed 2, it's a loooong road...
Ans Rafa needs to win the AO and the USO.
Yes, it'll be difficult, but he has far more options to achieve the Career Golden Slam than Federer. Federer "only" needs to win the FO (if Nadal stays healthy, the entire ATP should be praying for death) and a Singles Gold Medal (31-year-old in London), so it's almost impossible for him.
I don't think these posts belong here. Here we only make fun of Feddy
