It seems MTF get Angry then Nadal called the Goat of course Anyone has the right to disagree with this Statement however Trolling Nadal or getting Angry is going to far. Nadal has case for being Goat he's greatest player on single surface, has h2h in grand slams against two other greatest players in open era Djokovic, Federer. Not to mention the golden slam & double surface slam winning all surfaces in majors twice Also conservative top 10 record & longest Gap between first slam to his last 2005-2020 shows his Amazing Longevity not seen past eras. Anyway do you get Angry then someone calls Nadal Goat or fine with letting have their opinion discuss.

And he did it all (and much more) without breaking a single racket. (y)

I don't get angry about it. It's complete bullshit but I don't get angry about it. Clay GOAT obviously yes, overall GOAT he's far behind Djokovic and Federer, needs at least 2 more slams off clay.
Nadal has 2 on grass, 5 on hardcourt, 13 on clay.
Djokovic has 2 on clay, 6 on grass, 12 on hardcourt.
Federer has 1 on clay, 8 on grass, 11 on hardcourt.

They have all reached 5+ finals in each slam so this whole surface argument is stupid but if anything the only player who needs more slams on a particular surface is Federer on clay. His 1 clay out of 20 is the weakest link.

You just showed that Djokovic has more slams than his rivals on 2/3 surfaces. And he can potentially catch Federer on grass in 2023.

Although Nadal isn’t anywhere close to the other two on hard or grass or even indoors, he’ll always be the greatest clay courter. 👍

I just Add Nadal, Djokovic both have won twice on All 3 surfaces which I call the double surface slam while Federer only did this once. Not to mention Nadal, Djokovic both won Calendar year surface slam winning all 3 surfaces in same season Federer never did this as well.

Noone should get angry about that.

Nor should they if someone claims Sargis Sargsian from Armenia is the GOAT.

It's best just to explain why it's not the case, or leave the thread without comment, shaking your head.

True, beating Gonzales is certainly an achievement of epic proportions.
Well, out of the 6 WTF Federer won, 5 of them he won without losing a single match on RR. Let guess who is the only one who ever beat Fed on RR at WTF when he ended up winning the whole thing.. yes.. Gonzalez... and it was not a 2015+ version of Fed, but he beat Fed indoors in 2007 at his absolute peak.. when David Ferrer was absolutely peaking indoors in that tournament beating everybody left and right, and yet fed destroyed him in the Final.
Peak gonzo is seriously underestimated, in HC he was such a monster (his absolute peak in level was 2007/2008), for me better than peak tsonga, blake or davydenko for sure, and more dangerous for someone like fed that guys like Hewitt or Roddick. Id pay for seeing him playing peak Wawrinka AO2014 or Peak Safin in 2005. In his Flashy moments I found Peak gonzo to be more impressive than Peak delpo.
