Vote in the poll, please
Laver or Pancho if I had to choose. They are pretty close. Of course, we all know Fed will win this by a vote of 19424234-4.
Every other player will get less then 10 votes while Fed get 20000
You could just as well say "Not Federer". Federer haters are so predictable it's hilarious
I'd like to know what is the point of this thread....To be deleted?
Yeah pretty hilarious to see insecure ****s continue to make polls about if Federer is the best this or the best that, knowing this is **** Warehouse and every poll with Federer in it he is certain to win with atleast 97% votes, and convince themselves it proves something, lol!
Anyway I voted Rosewall since he is the most underrated all time great IMO, although obviously it is really probably Laver or Gonzales.
The point of a poll is to know what the consensus is, Sherlock
I won't vote. The day I have a time machine and a private island with tennis courts of all different surfaces, then yes.
Okay, thanks for letting me know. I feel much better now.
Ha Ha. Where's Davydenko?
Whatever, I guess it will be deleted.
Btw voted for Borg...
He's playing Golf with Rosol
Why? What's wrong with the poll?
Poll needs to be public!
Rosewall deserves to be mentioned up there. I think hes got a slam equivalent of 23-24 slams if we count the pro slams and RIDICULOUS longevity
1. Laver or Pancho
Rosewall just right below??
.. And Fed and Sampras rounding it out in the 4th or 5th spot?
LOL, gotta love how the Fed haters think they have some privileged access to the truth
ROFL.. Fedmunster with 18 votes already and Nadal with two? everyone else with 1 or less? WOW. This place truly is a JOKE!!
Love me some Nadal too.. But COME ON!!!
If this place is such a disgrace why you keep posting here? Pack your bags if you don't like it.
Gonzales doesn't even have the numbers to counter Federer.
Last time I checked he won a total of 17 - 2 of which he won as an amateur. He never won the French Open - the only major played on clay at the time and only made 2 finals of those.
Not to mention that the "professional tours" in the 50's weren't actual "tours". It was a 2-men battle throughout a year. It's like you put Federer and Djokovic together and make them play 100 matches in a year and who wins most ends the year ranked 1st. So a guy who was a part of it is actually greater than Federer who has to work his a** off in 7 5-set matches, all physically demanding. I mean WAT.
This is why everybody votes for Federer. Just to see you and NA go crazy.
Seems pretty straight forward to me... everyone voting can choose who they think. Perhaps it's a foregone conclusion because it is just that decisive in reality. Besides, I'll bet if you polled all living tennis legends, Federer would win that poll just as decisively. Now what might that tell you?
29 votes so far. None of them to Laver :lol:
With all due respect to Lendl, Connors, Agassi...they are not in the GOAT discussion at all, and shouldn't be compared to the other players who are a tier ahead in this poll
Yea that makes a lot of sense. I see you guys know your tennis history
The people recognize greatness when they see it. Fed's the obvious favorite.
Rosewall got a vote, BobbyOne must be lurking around lol
Welcome to tennis warehouse planet where 80% of the population are ****s.
****s: The annoying creatures who worship their one and only god, Federer.
Just because ****s worship and vote for Federer, doesn't mean it's not true
I'm positive having a public polls all over the internet Fed would still win. Because most fans believe he's the goat, not just on this forum.
Only Fed haters and idiots think that the truth of Fed being GOAT only exists on TT. How stupid can some people be?
If he was able to keep it together mentally, this guy would be the GOAT:
This and other threads are proof that 2% of the posters (*******s) make 90% of the noise in this forum because of insecurities.
Don't worry. NSK army will be here soon to fix it
Hehehehehehehehehehe. I've been waiting for him ever since I started this poll. Soon as he comes online, you'll have Nadal's poll numbers go up from 3 to 10 in a minute!
That would be really cool!!!!!
My dad swears by him...
A 1999 Sports Illustrated article about the magazine's 20 "favorite athletes" of the 20th century said about Gonzales (their number 15 pick): "If earth was on the line in a tennis match, the man you want serving to save humankind would be Ricardo Alonso Gonzalez."
The American tennis commentator Bud Collins echoed this in an August 2006 article for MSNBC.com: "If I ha'd to choose someone to play for my life, it would be Pancho Gonzales".
Whoever is the GOAT is debatable and inconclusive. But no poll which has Laver at 0 and Federer at 29 can be taken seriously.
Create who is ur fav tennis player of all time thread, that should sort out if this board is full of feddies or not
I voted for Federer. It was obvious that he was going to win given the nature of this forum. We might get some more balanced voting if this thread were in the Former Pro Player section. Most of the voting wouldn't be any less biased, but Fed wouldn't be winning by such a ridiculous amount.
To be honest the poll's results don't surprise me. It's fairly clear how this forum stands on Federer.
Incidentally, the topic of this thread if fleshed out fully would render obsolete most of the threads in General Pro Player discussion and a good chunk of the ones in Match Results and the Former Pro Player section. Wouldn't it be fun to have only one Goat debate thread?
I posted this in another thread but I think it's even more aposite for this one.
I would imagine the average person on this site is far more knowledgable about their tennis than the average member of the public. A public poll would probably have a much higher return for Federer 80% - 90%. What conclusions would you draw from that?
The answer is obviously going to be a trollish - 'ninety something per cent of everyone are morons but I'm one of the few right thinking minority. I'm an Edsel, Delorian, Betamax and a Cherry Coke guy and I know a winner when I see one.' Good luck with that.
Speak your mind. You're just upset Sampras has no votes
I think it is because Nadal obsessers (all 5 of them?) do not really want to vote for Laver, even though they do want to, to take it away from Federer. So given they have only one vote, they vote for Nadal, or don't vote at all.
I guess being nr. 1, 5-7 years of his peak, winning the nr. 1 record clinches it for most people.
I see the VAMOS! brigade hasn't voted yet.
Amazing that a couple of Rafa fans start 100 flame threads and make it sound like Fed and Rafa fans are equal in number.
I was thinking that as well.
Despite the massive Nadal trolls, this place never feels like an equal environment. Federer fans always outnumber Nadal fans and this makes for sh1tty threads. This place is a circlejerk for Federer fans until 3-4 Nadal fans post pro-Nadal/anti-Federer comments. This triggers discussion and Nadal fans have a lot more comments to reply to.
This poll will prove at least one thing, and it will have nothing to do with who is the GOAT.
