Is Sampras the only established GOAT of a slam (WIM)?
 
Leading winners of each slam:

Australian Open: Agassi 4, Federer 4

Roland Garros: Nadal 7 (updated in 2012)

Wimbledon: Sampras 7, Federer 7 (updated in 2012)

US Open: Connors 5, Sampras 5, Federer 5

Nadal will very likely equal 7 wins of a slam, and also likely surpass it.

Yep very historical opportunity for Nadal, given his youth especially. A shot at 8-10.

Yeah hopefully. For me I'd say 7-10.

We can't have 2 GOAT's of a slam? Rafa has FO and Sampras has Wimbledon

FedExpress 333 07-13-2011 09:30 PM

Rafa might win another FO.

Didn't look at it that way. How can you ge GOAT when you aren't GOAT of any slams?

Exactly, Neither Nadal or Federer are GOATS.

Ok. So who is the goat?

fps 07-14-2011 11:33 AM

Nadal is not going to win 10 RGs. Get real.

This GOAT talk is ridiculous.

I don't know yet, I need to do more research.

You can't be a GOAT of just one surface, even if it is grass:)

He could be a GOG though.

Seems only open era is mentioned. What about the greats who played before then, there are few who would be on top.

Tagg 12-07-2012 09:50 AM

well, federer now has 7 wimbledons as well

i still have sampras above federer at wimbledon though for domination

7 in 8 years, never lost a final

nadal has been more dominant at RG than anyone at any slam ever

Never lost a final :confused: no..because he liked to lose in the QF :twisted:

Also he never lost a final because he kept losing before he reached the final..or he scuttled off and retired (no wimby apps after age 30).

Federer lost in the first round of Wimbledon 3 times. And lost in the qf in 2 of the last 3 Wimbledon. Nadal is 52-1 at Roland Garros. Federer is a mess at Wimbledon by comparison. But I thank Federer for winning a 7th Wimbledon to tie Sampras, because now there is no GOAT at Wimbledon. Now Nadal is the only GOAT in history.

no, he never lost a final because he was mentally tough

something federer generally hasn't been

nonetheless, federer was beaten by a (then) clay specialist in his backyard

sampras was never dominated by anyone
