you're not actually answering what i said - takes more than 1 match for a rivalry. at least 5 i reckon
I can use another example besides Federer if you want me to.
Whether if you think at least 5 matches makes a rival is up to you. I'm not saying that you can't makeup your own rules(and no one has to agree). My point is in a real match, a win is a win. Your suggesting a win(or a loss) doesn't count if they haven't meet at least 5 times. If that's what you're trying to tell me than I disagree.
Tier1(goat): Federer; Tier 1.5: Laver, Gonzales, Sampras, Nadal, Borg;
Tier 2: Lendl, Connors, Rosewall, Tilden; Tier 2.5: McEnroe, Agassi
