Is Ken Rosewall resentful of the GOAT?

I love that whenever some Nadal or Djokovic fans talk about the slam record they say things like "21 versus 20 ends the debate." Because one slam difference is so massive that people shouldn't even talk about Fed being GOAT but a 3 or 5 slam difference in Roger's favour and he's "maybe the GOAT for now but it's arguable."

You're either bonafide morons with single digit IQs, or you're just unbelievably sad people being so negatively predisposed to someone you don't know. If it's the latter you genuinely have my sympathy, clearly things could be going better in your life and I hope they do.
When you put it that way it just looks so bad on them. But what you say is absolutely true . Even with a 5 major gap, some claim Novak is GOAT. They are the worst.

Is it true that Rosewall was of Cornish descent? I find no proof of this.
Yes, I found proof of it, which I posted on my thread, "Tennis in the Second Golden Age of Sports".

The Rosewall families farmed around Rosewall Hill in west Cornwall, and I found a post from someone whose husband Rosewall claimed to be a cousin of Ken.

Because we can only crown fed GOAT when we have the final tallies of nadal,djoko and fed. It is arguable that fed is GOAT because none of them have finished their careers. If djoko finishes his career above fed albeit by 1 then his fanbase has the right to call him GOAT. Calling fed or djoko or rafa the GOAT prematurely before all his contemporary competitors in GOAT race finish their career is sheer arrogance. BTW there can be no GOAT in tennis as GOAT is too objective a term that cant be used in tennis which has so many subjective variables.

That is a logical fallacy (wrong argument) known as straw man (to put in the mouth of others what they didn't say, to refute a "straw man" which simulates what they really said).

No serious Nadal or Djokovic fan would say that Federer is the GOAT if he ends up with more Slams than Djokodal. They sometimes (prematurely) claim Nadal or Djokovic to be the GOAT because they assume Federer will be surpassed in the Slam count. If by 2025 Fed has more Majors than Djokodal, he will remain the GOAT, even if there is only one Major of difference.
