Well, I happen to think that thread is for MTF specific opinions and discussion of GOATs.

And tradition seems to have it that Player opinions on the GOAT topic are worthy of their own thread, at least for a while.

So I started it as a separate one.

It is also noteworthy that you make no comment regarding any of the posts above, and instead choose to openly criticize my making a thread about this.

If you feel so strongly about it, certainly report my first post and let the mods decide what to do with the thread.

Or maybe you are campaigning to be a moderator?

Respectfully,

Well there is a general thread for GOAT discussions where you can also discuss about this matter. There are a lot of thread that have been made about this particular topic, which players have said more or less that same opinion, which have been moved to the GOAT thread, and I think this shouldn't be the exception either. I have no interest in becoming a moderator anytime soon, I don't think I'm a suitable candidate for that so that's definitely not it.

I just personally feel it's unnecessary to create a thread when a player simply gives his opinion about this matter, unless he said something very controversial and gave his opinion in this matter, but that's not the case here, imo. It's just my opinion mate, I'm not that bothered about this thread that I'll report it to the mods.

That opinion is perfectly logical if one looks at everyone's resume objectively. Does anyone think that Rafa wouldn't jump at exchanging Fed's career (that overall variety of accomplishments) with his? Or does anyone think that Fed would trade his for Rafa's - basically dominance on one surface?

Default Re: ~~ GOAT discussions ~~ Vol. 2

Well either Roger is the greatest or he isn't. Doesn't really matter what David and the like say... Of course it's a great compliment from one tennis genius to another, but GOAT isn't reliant on opinion - but objective facts. All the evidence points to one man, and no - we won't entertain the begging and pleading by Wafitards. When Wafa hits 17 slams with slams 15, 16, and 17 won off of clay, then maybe we will look at your posts seriously.

These Fedtarts are so desperate and afraid of what Rafa can do that they cheer and exxo defeat as they would celebrate a Wimby win for Fed.

There must be a medical name for these kind of people besides fedtarts.

As opposed to Dulltards who can't talk about anything except weak era competition , Dulls injuries(which mysteriously allow him to play Basel and Beijing but not WTF) and how number 1 ranking and weeks are no longer important.

Default Federer > Nadal

17 > 14
302 > 141
6 > 0

The gap is still huge even in 2015.

Doubt Nadal will catch him in Slams. Unless he wins 3 more times French Open.
