It's a futile exercise to try and rewrite history to have the greats of older times proclaimed as GOAT, but it is funny to watch certain posters try.
Phoenix1983, It's funny to read your wrong statements and claims.
Federer is of course NOT the consensus male tennis GOAT.
Did you ever hear the name Bud Collins?? Bud assured me last year that he does not rate Roger the GOAT. He told me his four GOAT candidates: Tilden, Gonzalez, Rosewall and Laver (guess he favours Laver).
