Previous eras when many of the top stars also competed in doubles were much stronger than now. The Bryan brothers are great ambassadors for doubles but simply winning the most Open Era majors against weak competition does not make them doubles GOATs.
Phoenix,

I'm positively surprised and very glad about your newest post. Thanks that you agree at least regarding doubles competition once and now.
