When Federer won the French recently, some people were saying that he cannot be considered GOAT until he defeats Nadal again in a slam final (which I disagree with, but anyway). As I was only 2 years old at the time, I was wondering if anyone knew whether some people were saying similar things about Navratilova when she won Wimbledon in 1990. That it was 'hollow' or whatever that she didn't beat Steffi Graf in the final, whom she had lost to in the previous 3 slam finals she had been in. For the record, I don't think it affects the achievement at all, obviously Graf wasn't good enough to reach the final in 1990 and Navratilova beat everyone who stood in her way, so it isn't my viewpoint. But just wondering if there were those who did believe so?
