Why are people against Rafa being a GOAT candidate exactly?:

He has 11 slams. (Borg and Laver have 11 slams and they are GOAT candidates aren't they?)

Has destroyed another GOAT candidate at slams for his entire career. Check

Career Grand Slams (check)

Was Number 1 in the world (check)

Has close to record number of masters event (Check)

Positive h2h vs. his main rivals (Murray, Fed, Djoker) Check

What more does the guy need exactly? There is no hands down GOAT anyways.. So you can make a case for Rafa as least being a candidate since thats all we have anyways.. Candidates. There is no hands down for sure GOAT.

Hasn't he beaten Federer enough? Does he need to beat him more? Hasn't he beaten his other main rivals enough? Does he need to beat Murray and Djokovic more? He could use maybe a few more slams sure.. But does he need more masters events? Hasn't he won enough of those?
