Well...I don't think so, at least not until he has more GS then Federer, and Federer is still playing very well.
I think Nadal will go down as the best clay courter, no doubt about that , but the GOAT? Nahhh
I think Federer will be the goat.
I am bias though! I am a huge Federer fan.
I personally prefer Federer to Nadal, Federer is graceful and elegent in his strokes and play, Nadal is pure brute force.
I reckon, however, once Nadal has mastered HC surfaces he will be unstoppable and could potentially hold all four grand slams at once, however not if Del Potro, Murray and Djokovic have anything to say about it.
Another prediction is that Del Potro could potentially be number 1 by the end of this yr.
Del Potro could possibly be top 5, but not number 1. He needs to perfom consistently at all the other slams and master series first, not just mickey mouse tourneys.
Nadal's game is too physcially demanding. He needs to win a load of titles before his mid twenties. I dont think he'll be GOAT. Great player though.
True, but uve got to start somewhere, his serve could potentially be the deadliest in the game, hes 1.98m tall and serves at like 190km/h, he could easily be serving at roddicks pace if he mastered it.
Nadal's great and if he doesn't become the greatest player of all time, he'll definitely be recognised as the greatest on clay. He'll have to keep up the pace though.
Federer's a great player, though, one of the best.
Hoping for a Federer/ Nadal final at the Open!
I love tennis. I think Nadal will get better than Federer. My favourite player is Djokovich though but he doesnt seem to be doing that great lately.
Federer will always be the greatest
Nadal will never take his legacy!
I don't even think Djokovic is much of an opponent at this moment for to take #1 spot from Nadal. I think Murray could improve and maybe attack for it but so far I think the only real opponent of Nadal is Federer. Del Potro looks good for a bit but then he plays so badly some other games, Djokovic seemed good a year ago but then after that his whole season was pretty lame I thought.
you could argue greatest clay court player of all time maybe but its too early to say greatest tennis player of all time
Maybe but Federer's achievement is still admirable.
