Absolutely. Strawman argument and that's why *** is on my ignore list.
The very similar case for Gonzo in 2007 AO. He blew everyone including Nadal off the court. Of course he's not a star player like Nadal, so only irrational fans like *******s will say Fed wins wasn't that impressive, ignoring the fact that Gonzo was playing out of his mind except only judge him by his GS history(LOL !). We don't even know if a prime Nole/Nadal would have beaten 2007 Gonzo.
Tier1(goat): Federer; Tier 1.5: Laver, Gonzales, Sampras, Nadal, Borg;
Tier 2: Lendl, Connors, Rosewall, Tilden; Tier 2.5: McEnroe, Agassi
