you don't say. wonder why you won't discuss it here but bring up useless stats about rafas so called HC prowess tho as long as they fit your narrative.
Stats are stats, sorry if your self-deluded narrative doesn't fit them.

Stats reveal, among other things, that alleged GOAT Fed (LoL) only managed to vulture one sorry major on clay while Rafa has five in HC. Also stats say Rafa HC Masters titles double those of Roger on clay.

So yes, probably Rafa is a HC mug but that would leave Roger as an ultraübermug on clay.

Sorry.

The end of the world, not even kidding. And that's not likely for the next couple of years so I would say nothing, it's a done deal. The faster 40-15er tards will acknowledge that the less they're going to suffer.

Sports is entertainment. Al Pacino won only one Oscar. Johnny Depp none at all. Yes, there are some stats out there but that is a very "American" way to look at sports (sorry for the generalization)?

All three legends are amazing entertainers for slightly different reasons. In this context, it is pretty clear and obvious who the one and only GOAT is:
Nole for Nole fans.
Rafa for Rafa fans.
Roger for Roger fans.

Don't be this:

Rogie is 0-3 in Wimbledon finals against grassovic. Tell me how many Wimbledon finals Pete lost?
That's silly!... Federer has made 5 more finals and all past the age of 30.Sampras was pretty much finished by then.Even if Sampras was good enough to have made some more at that age I'm sure he would've lost a few as well thus ruining his perfect record.

It demonstrates a big difference in mental strength between Federer and Sampras within a span of a match. If Sampras had a Championship Point, he would have taken it, no blunders, no chokes, simple and ruthless. Federer wins so much because of his talent - his mental strength OTOH was not that great - he tends to falter when his opponents actually carry on, continue to push him hard and drive him to the edge (Nadal, Djokovic, 2009 Del Potro, 2011 Tsongas) instead of rolling over like his New Ball Generation peers.

Yes, though it feels really hard for the Fedtards here to acknowledge that.
Federer played mentally weak or too old players at the start of his domination (Philippussy, Fatdatis, Oldgassi, Rodduck) in his first few slam finals who were good enough to reach the final, but not really good enough to pose a real threat or have a decent or more like 20% chance to win (and that only ofc if Federer had had a really bad day on the day of the final).
The only player (from the above group) who had a decent chance to win it vs Fed was 2009 Roddick, but he blew that in the 5th.

Yoo hoo, calling for Haneul & Bella Mirka to justify this ATG lineup.
