Fed was THE GOAT whether or not he won the 18th grand slam.

You cannot be the GOAT if you are not better than your arch rival lel wtf. Not everything is about slams. Nadal is the better player. Fed finally beat him so yes now he is the undisputed GOAT. In saying thay if nadal reaches level with fodza's slam tally then nadal is the GOAT. He is 5 years younger dont forget.

around 2007/08 Tournament directors slowed down all courts to allow the heavy baseline hitters in Nadal, Novak and Murray more chance to return, They wanted longer rallies, This directly hurt Roger's game. Had the courts stayed the same over the last 8 or so years Fed would probably be past 20 GS titles.

41 Semi's 28 GS finals 18 wins, He's the GOAT no questions.

You can't just ignore the difference in quality between the current big 4 vs Roddick and co.

roger himself benefited from slower courts. He himself says that. So that point is totally invalid. Had the court been faster like old days, roger wouldnt have won as many wimbledon titles or us opens. Sampras was much better on the old grass court.

Roger adapted, Never helped him, It directly helped Novak and Nadal, Fast court helps him hit past Novak and allows him to receive at hip level vs Nadal, On the slower court, Feds point of contact vs Nadal is 20-25cms higher, This is a massive advantage for Nadal, Fed always struggled to get over the ball to generate his own spin and power, That's why he would try and over hit causing plenty of unforced errors.

Nha nadal in his prime was just a better player. Even on grass he gave him fits.

Fed just won a GS title at 35 years old vs Nadal, Let's see what Nadal is doing at 35.

23-12. Tennis is the only sport where a GOAT could have a lopsided h2h vs his own arch rival.

Berlocq wins against Lorenzi and Argentina is 2-2 coming from a 0-2 in Davis Cup

Australian Open and Indian Wells already claimed this season and looking impressive in Miami. Cherishing this resurgence from Roger.

A bit sad that Federer is taking a break during the clay court season, although he'll return for the French. And since he dominanted most baseline rallies vs Nadal yesterday who knows what will happen? I think he will give it a shot in Paris, but his focus the next couple of months I'm sure is gonna be on a record 8th Wimbledon

It's gonna be interesting to see how well Nadal does on clay. It looks like most titles are his for the taking.

First Grand Slam and the first two Masters 1000 Events of the season claimed.
Hopefully the break will do him really good again when he returns for the French Open.
