Efficiency of winning 20 GSs

Among the Big Three, it is obvious Fed spent the least time on court compared to Novak or Rafa. This is due to his aesthetic free-flowing all court game that emphasized attack as opposed to the grinding slug fests that Novak and Rafa regularly played. I distinctly remember Peak Roger winning his service points under a minute REGULARLY.

To me, many of their tiresome duels were self-inflicted since neither Novak nor Rafa are willing to seize the initiative. Since Moya took charge, I was happy to see Rafa switch to a more purposeful, attacking game.

Does anyone have stats showing the average match duration for Fed across his 20 GS wins/31 GS finals when compared to Novak and Rafa? I am willing to bet Fed used 30% lesser match time averaged across his GS victories. I am tempted to anoint Fed as the most efficient GOAT candidate.

Most of Federers matches in straight sets avg 90-120 mins.

A lot will obviously due to matches on average on grass lasting much shorter than matches on clay....Fed might have had the quickest matches but stats might show it to be too skewed

Rafa is the most efficient , playing less number of slams for his 20.

Also he's the youngest to achieve the career GS, all time.

Rafa also has the best h2h against the other 2 in GS

I don't buy less number of slam excuse, he is less consistent outside clay, so playing more will not increase his chance but yeah his CGS was awesome.
First Wimbledon was great, First AO was great and the performance in his first US Open win was also excellent

There is nothing as efficient winning. If Nadal reached grand slam finals to win 20 slams then it shows that he was incapable of reaching more finals and his level was pretty low overall, he is inconsistent at maintaining a high level. You cannot market that as efficient winning.
