Default OT: Will Federed be the GOAT

Federer has been quietly dominating tennis for several years now. Nadal may be better than him on clay, but besides Nadal and noone seems to be able to beat him. He's only 23 I think.

woops title is messed up lol

probably, even though Sampras played against much tougher and deeper competition.

He's already one of the best tennis players of all time. But he's gonna need some more major victories to really be considered the GOAT. The next few years will determine it.

My opinion? Yea, I think he'll be the GOAT.

I think Federer will need to win Roland Garros a couple times but he can definitely do it.

well lets compare sampras' competition vs. Federer.

Sampras main comp-Agassi, chang(for a bit), henman, phillipousis, hewitt, that brazilian guy, safin and some other dudes.

Federer-Roddick, hewitt, safin, nadal. More?

He's going to have to start beating his rival (Nadal) consistantly first, but when it's all said and done, he'll definately be up there with Laver and Sampras.

do you think men go to women's matches just to take pictures of Sharapova bending over in those miniskirts? because the camera folk at CBS and USA surely do it.
