Hall of Fame
I think it is kind of funny.

Federer is the "slowing down" era goat.

Nadal is the "slowing down even more" era goat.

Next goat will be "we only play on extremely slow hard courts" goat.

In 2020 it will be "it's impossible to hit a ball past a player, you can only make a winner by a drop-shot" era goat.
