This is why Roger crumbled and tanked the matches against Novak, knowing that if he had to face Rafa in the final he was going to lose to him at USO as well. That kind of thing is too much to bear for sir Rogi.
It is not Federer's fault if Nadal can't make the final. Anyhow this thread is kind of stupid because Federer would never say he's the GOAT anyway, just as Laver or Sampras wouldn't say they were if they were asked the same question.
