LOL GS champions such as Sampras and Mac and Laver think Fed is GOAT. Zebellos is a nobody. Nadal is the clay GOAT but thats where it ends. Nadal has taken too many breaks and lacks the consistency of ever being called GOAT.
In that case Fed lacked the competition to be considered goat.

"I am very happy that Rafa come to Viņa del Mar, in my house, and that Chileans can enjoy it and learn from it. You always want to play against Nadal, Federer or Djokovic and here it would be special. Known him since he was 15 years and have always had a cordial relationship. I think it's the greatest on clay, one of the best tennis players in history and one of the best athletes of all time. "Nadal is to tennis what Phelps is to swimming, Jordan to basketball or Ali to boxing" Massú.
