Nadal will not pass Federer but he will come close. And if he ends up with 15 majors or more, he will be GOAT because of the H2H and Fed's WEAK ERA.
But how can Rafa be the GOAT due to H2H if he has a poor H2H with Nole ? He could not beat a prime Nole in 2011 (whereas Fed could !!).
If Fed benefitted from a weak era, then so did Rafa, winning his slams before Joker peaked. (Now Nole has a weak era since Fed and Rafa are finished). Soon the weak era of Murray's domination will commence *rolls eyes*
