Why do you go to the "extreme"? We are not talking here about only slams, Nadal has a very good resume outside the slams too, Novak has a better resume outside the slams than Nadal but Nadal is still better at slams so personally I put Nadal ahead of Djokovic TODAY.Too all the people that say it’s ALL about slams.
What about this scenario. A player wins the AO 21 times in his career for say age 17-40. But it’s the only event he wins all year every year so he never gets #1 or any WTF and is completely lob sided at slams. Is he still GOAT as he has 21 slams ?
