A post that makes me deplore the loss of the like button.To me, it's impossible to figure out who the GOAT is. Too many variables and it's too hard to compare different eras.
I still think Laver is overall GOAT. Best accomplishment in the sport's history, and most complete game that was way ahead of it's time. Of course there are weaknesses we can all point out in his resume (as can be done with other GOATs like Borg, Pistol, RF, Serbinator etc.) but I think the fact that everyone has lived in his shadow is proof enough that he's GOAT.
