Logically flawed statement. Federer is the GOAT, you say, but he is not the baseline GOAT. It begs the question, where the hell did the GOAThood come from? Federer is a baseliner. It could not be from his volleying, because he has not done that consistently in a slam for a while now and when he did used to do it, there were many players still on tour who were much better than him at it like Henman, Rafter, and Rafter. Federer's baseline game is phenomenal and one of the finest in history.
