If Serena is that good, then show us the numbers. Steffi is damn good, AND she proved it with quality/quantity numbers. Safin is damn good, but no one is saying he's a goat. The only objective way to measures player's greatness is achievements.
Tier1(goat): Federer; Tier 1.5: Laver, Gonzales, Sampras, Nadal, Borg;
Tier 2: Lendl, Connors, Rosewall, Tilden; Tier 2.5: McEnroe, Agassi
