Also concur there is absolutely no way, even for those who want to argue Borg as being above Nadal which is not how most people feel at this point (I am talking the real World, not Planet TW), that there is no way he is in a higher tier. So if one wants to argue Borg as being tier 1, Nadal must be also.
I disagree with your opinion on Borg but let's not discuss that now. What I am curious about is why you have Tilden in the second tier. He won over 160 tournaments, was virtually unbeatable for about a decade and won on every surface. If you include Pro Majors he won 14 majors. If you don't he won 10 majors. He won 98% of his matches during his peak years. How much more dominant can you be? Tilden is overwhelming qualified as a GOAT candidate.
