I'm talking about they are 1-1 on clay since this is about clay court goat thread. Limpin is clueless.
If they both are at the same age competing in the same era, I think Fed would beat him more often. The problem is with you people think that if Fed can't beat Nadal on clay, then he's automatically below Guga, Lendl, etc. That's not how it works because everyone in their right mind knows those guys wouldn't beat Nadal either.
Tier1(goat): Federer; Tier 1.5: Laver, Sampras, Nadal, Borg;
Tier 2: Lendl, Connors, Rosewall; Tier 2.5: McEnroe, Agassi
