Tennis is a tournament sport played against the field. Federer has been the most successful against his field, therefore he is GOAT.

If tennis was a "champion vs. contender" sport (like boxing) his H2H with Nadal would be considered (but probably thrown away as being clay-skewed). However, H2H is simply not how the pro tour works.
