Wawrinka (now) or Rafter, who is greater?

Wawrinka (now) :
- 10 ATP Singles including 2014 Australian Open (def. No.2 Djoker and No. 1 Rafa) and 2015 Roland Garros (def. No.2 Fedcow and No. 1 Djoker)
- Beijing Olympics Doubles (w/ Fedcow)
- 1 x Davis Cup (2014)
- Highest ATP Singles rank is NO.3

Rafter :
- 11 ATP Singles titles including B2B US Open (1997 US Open, 1998 US Open; won comeback Agassi & No.2 Chang in 1997 and NO. 1 Sampras in 1998 before entering both finals)
- 2 Wimbledon runners-up (2000, 2001)
- 10 ATP Doubles titles including 2000 Australian Open
- 1 x Davis Cup (1999, absent from final, but Major player against Zimbabwe in R1 and USA in QF)
- One week ATP NO.1 (1999.7.26 - 1999.8.1) :devil:
- H2H 3:0 against GOAT Fedcow :eek:

Rafter at the moment, given he was one of the best players over a 5 year period.

It's also worth noting that Rafter also played his last match before turning 29yo, whereas Wawrinka is already 30.

No matter how many Slams Stan ends up with, chances are he will be considered one of the worst players with that amount of Slams, and that's completely ok :)

Rafter because he dominated a whole summer one year in North America and because he came so close to winning Wimbledon multiple times. Wawrinka may catch him though

Rafter, simply because of his epic epic matches at Wimbledon vs. Agassi and Goran :worship:

Why is it when someone wins a slam, they are now compared to others that have won the same number? It's absolutely pointless.

They only see the Slams as the only worth of a great player it seems. :eek:

Rafter without a doubt, Pat played in an era where 20 players could win slams, stan playing in the weakest era of all times

For now Rafter. Although Stan winning 2 different slams is better than winning 2 of the same one I'd say
