Still invalid. Pete and Fed career had two features: First they won Slams on three different surfaces, showing they are not 1-dimensional, second they have a high Slam count. Nadal has now achieved the first criteria, now needs to at least surpass 10 Slams, in order to be in the discussion.

No, only Nadal of the three has done that.

he sure is on his way, but he needs to win at least 13 GS to start discussing it more seriously.

Lets see if Nadal can win half of Feds number and then we'll talk. I doubt he'll get close

if u want i can post alot more records that nadal has no one else has. plus why does borg and laver have 11 slams and they are in the discussion and nadal has to get 13 slams to be in it? if nadal gets 10 slams, he is in the discussion. nadal's worry is his injuries, vbut if he has any brains whatsoever he will only play slams and masters series in a couple of years.

once Rafa is on double digits, he'll be in the "GOAT" discussion, pointless as it is

Masterful bump.

In 2006 Nadal was already becoming a legend of clay, but I admit to being skeptical back then of his ability to succeed on all surfaces. It's amazing how he has continued to improve his game.
