Federer is considered the greatest by some because he has 17 slams.
But some of those slams were really not that big of a deal.
The slams Nadal won were mainly against Federer himself . So I don't see how logically you can possibly say that Federer is the greatest player that ever lived when there is a player who is alive and dominates him.
Feds slams came mainly before Nadal or as Nadal was developing.
No way he can possibly win 17 slams with today's competition .....no way in hell.
You make a very sound argument there buddy. And I agree.
But if Nadal is to contend for the GOAT status #1, he has to win more
GS/ Majors (for those who want to always be 'politically' correct) out of Clay and get to number 1 ranking longer, maybe 200+ more. Just my 2¢
