Volume two is here...

If Nadal dethrones Djokovic and ascends to the No1 position this year, that would mean Nadal is the only player from this era who dethroned two all time greats from their No1 position.

well what's wrong? The other thread had to be locked because it crossed 5000 posts, not because arguments were heating up.

What is there to discuss? Nadal = GOAT. At least 2 slams on every surface. Career golden slam. Record masters titles. At least 1 slam for 9 consecutive years. 20-10 H2H against Swiss Nose. I could go on and on. Close the thread, mods.

Fighting two all time greats in their prime and dethroning them. Both achieved 5 years apart. Doesn't that say something about his longevity? It's another GOATesque achievement, talks a lot about his longevity especially when Fed fans and Djokovic fans suggest such little time frames of peak for their idols.

Dethroning is not good enough. He has to stay there atleast 100 more weeks only then he is enough to be in the discussions for GOAT. Right now he is not in the discussion

Didn't Federer already do that? Or do you mean year end #1?

He is wrong you are right, Roger dethroned Dull and Djokovic, unless he doesn't consider Dull an all time great.

Dull tards trying their best to find things Roger hasn't done before so they can have more arguments that nadal is GOAT or is in contention, both of which he's not of course.

It's you and he who are wrong. Turkey never dethroned Nadal. He achieved it in the absence of Nadal. He dethroned only Djokovic last year(in the absence of Nadal).

Nadal is slowly but surely putting an end to the GOAT discussions. It won't be long until the whole world will see the light and call Rafa the undisputed GOAT

I hope Dull does not go on another maternity leave this year after another embarrassing loss to some unknown scrub at Wimbledon. He has to man up and finish the second half of the season and face his rivals in their favorite surface.
