Nadal won a slam and 11 titles in 2005. He's an early bloomer just like Borg. He was an undisputed #2 in the world !
But even if you say Nadal was a baby back then, Federer today at 31 is #1 and have beaten prime players Nadal, Nole and Murray.
Tier1(goat): Federer; Tier 1.5: Laver, Gonzales, Sampras, Nadal, Borg;
Tier 2: Lendl, Connors, Rosewall, Tilden; Tier 2.5: McEnroe, Agassi
