No, it's not about ability, but purely on the level of greatness to the sport. Graf is widely considered the female goat while Sampras is not, that's why he's below.
Tier1(goat): Federer; Tier 1.5: Laver, Gonzales, Sampras, Nadal, Borg;
Tier 2: Lendl, Connors, Rosewall, Tilden; Tier 2.5: McEnroe, Agassi
