The more FO title he wins, the less will he be a GOAT-contender

For being GOAT you need to be the best in most stats, not only collecting titles at your pet slam. Where are his WTFs? His weeks #1? 5-8 Wimbledon titles? The most important title of all? He might be the clay-GOD, but for being GOAT you need way more.

IMO, Federer still GOAT.

Nadal will always be a candidate regardless of Clay Heavy Resume.

Djokovic is king of weak era, he at Lendl, Laver level in Goatness.

Fedal and Sampras the 3 best.

Winning GS titles can never go wrong. Sure it will be better if he picks up some more titles outside RG.

Let’s be honest , Majority only cares about majors thanks to Sampras and Federer hyping that record

It will be ok, Djoker fans. Djoker still has his pet slam in Aus and old Fed and Anderson waiting for him in Wimbledon.

Lmao Federer and Djokovic would be hailed clay court gods by this easily impressed generation of fans if it wasn't for Nadal's actual greatness stopping them. This notion that Fed or Djoko are the greatest of this era has hopefully been put to bed for good now.

Each of the 3 will have their own untouchable records, it's just weighing up how they all stack up against each other. Or not, maybe there never will be a GOAT. Maybe it's just some imaginary title that can never really be achieved
 
How can winning more make you worse?

I’d argue winning the other slams does more for his legacy, but it’s the way he can still play this level after 15 years shows amazing longevity.

Similarly, if Djokovic wins another Australian Open, hell actually be losing ground against Fed in the HC GOAT race.

The most important title of all? The slams are all equal, there are preferences, Nadal always loved RG the most. Where are Federer's gold medals in single, where are his French Open titles? Where is his head to head?

No one ever said that. This is just one of a projected 70 threads attempting (and failing) to play the irrelevant stat game to offset the ass-hurt from Nadal doing what I've said all year long: he would tie Federer, and he's more likely win more than Federer at this point, which is wonderful, but not for...



In any case, neither Nadal or Federer ever won the greatest of all tennis achievements--the Grand Slam--so they are not GOAT players.

Agreed. I wanted Rafael
You can really measure the misery quotients of some posters when they can't celebrate the victory from a rival player. How about congratulating Rafa for another win at RG?
Agreed. I wanted Djoker to win but full respect to The Nadal.

Can you believe how quick this post was?
Even Nadal said in his post match - that he is not thinking of 20 slams or anything like that. Just cares about winning RG. Some people here will never stop.

Ah, yes. This is why Fed and Djokovic better not win any more AOs or Ws. Because more is always less. Very wise, OP. Btw, better have that butt checked out, seems mighty hurt right now ;)
