    TENNIS legend Rod Laver has proclaimed Roger Federer as the best player of all time, with Rafael Nadal close behind.

    He had said it before, but says it again in London.

    "Roger Federer certainly is my claim to be the best of all time if there is such a thing," said the 73-year-old.
    "Roger's got all the shots, his anticipation is unbelievable, his timing off the groundstrokes with his shots, his single-handed backhand is one of the best there is.
    "But at the same time, I look at Rafael Nadal and what he's done to win seven French Open titles and Wimbledon.

    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..."
