What a sly fox.....brings him Federer up...then at the end slightly stabs him by mentioning Rafa. Let the guys contemplate who is great between Rafa and Roger. The everlasting struggle will cause people to get tired which puts Laver at Goat!

Too bad the Dark Knight isn't here to see this..

So much for all his expert testimony, the GOAT himself considers Federer ahead of Rafa LOL.

"I can't watch this, Rafa is not worthy of being in our presence. he should be on his knees bowing to us. Oh well... at least he's not scratching his butt..."
