General | Latest Info

Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal are synonymous with the acronym GOAT, or Greatest Of All Time. These two players are in the elite inner circle of tennis, along with Pete Sampras, Rod Laver, and Bjorn Borg. Yet, among these five stellar players, there is one true GOAT. It's just that the population has not been able to determine one, and only one, player to be give title GOAT. I think that the person who is a true GOAT is the Swiss Maestro, Roger Federer. At his best, Roger Federer is the greatest of all time. At his worst, Roger Federer is the greatest of all time. All evidence points to the fact that Federer is the best to ever hold a racket. Federer leads the pack with 16 Grand slams, followed by Sampras at 14, Roy Emerson at 12, Borg and Laver at 11. Nadal is behind with 10. While some may contend that Federer competes in a weak era, this is untrue. Federer was such a strong player that he made others look weak, when they were actually part of one of the best generations of tennis players to date. Federer also has been to 23 straight semifinals at Grand slams, and 23 Finals at Grand slams. Not only that, Federer has been to a record 29 straight quarterfinals at Grand slams. Pete Sampras holds the record here, but Federer is close behind with 285 weeks occupying top spot, compared to 286 weeks for Sampras. Meanwhile, Nadal has held top spot for about 2 years, or 104 weeks. However, Federer does hold the record for most consecutive weeks, with 237 weeks. Sampras lead the pack in most year end No. 1 rankings, with 6, but Federer is at 5. Nadal has only had two years in which he ended the year at No. 1. Federer has won 67 tournaments in singles, including Grand slams. While far behind the record set by Jimmy Connors, Federer has among the most career titles. Nadal is over 20 tournaments behind at 46. The World Tour Finals, which pit Top 8 players against each other at the end of the season, have been won by Federer 5 times. Nadal, however, has only been to one final, where he was beaten by Federer in 3 sets. How can man be the greatest of all time if he cannot be the greatest of his generation? Many critics point to Federer's losing head to head to Rafael Nadal as the legitimate reason Federer is not GOAT. However, Federer is the best of his generation, evidence by his winning most Grand slams of his generation. Losing record to just one player does not equate to falling from grace. Nadal is not all that there is to tennis. There are hundreds of other players in the tennis world; Tennis is not a battle of Federer vs. Nadal. Federer hasn't won a gold medal at an Olympics yet.

Best Slam

Federers best slam in terms of most titles is Wimbledon, where he has won 8, as well as losing 4 Finals. He leads Nadal 3-1 at Wimbledon but trails Novak 3-1. His best slam for final wins is the Australian Open, where he has won 6 and lost 1. Of those 6 wins, only 1 was against another member of the Big 3, Rafa Nadal, who his 1 defeat also came against. He trails Nadal 3-1 in Australians and Djokovic 4-1. The Feds ' best slam for match win% is Wimbledon, where he boasts 101 wins for 13 defeats. The slam where he has most wins, however, is the Aussie Open, where he has 102 wins for 15 defeats. The Federers worst slam is, of course, French, only slam he has won less than 5 times, winning just once against Robin Soderling in 2009. His record there stands at 70 wins and 17 losses. Nadals best slam might be French where he is 13-0 in Finals and 26-0 when he reaches semis. He leads Federer 6-0 at RG and Djokovic 7-1. His record there is 100-2 98% win percentage, which is reasonably healthy. His worst slam is Wimbledon for amount of matches won. Despite winning one more title there than his 1 at the Aussie Open, Nadal has won 53 matches at Wimbledon for 12 defeats, which is 4 fewer victories than fellow two-time champion Andy Murray. Some will argue that Nadal winning 13 of his 20 Slams at RG makes him too reliant on one Slam, one surface to be GOAT. But he has make 15 Finals off clay, winning 7 and losing 8. No one argue that Djokovic is too reliant on the Australian Open for his legacy and his non-AO final record stands at 9-10. Novak's best slam is the Australian Open, where he is 8-0 in Finals and 16-0 from semis onwards. He leads Nadal 2-0 in Australians and Federer 4-1. He has a 90% win rate there, with 75 wins to 8 losses. Djokovic is the most consistent player across all slams, given he boasts a very similar number of wins in all slams. He has 75 wins each in Australia and the US and Wimbledon with 72 is his lowest for wins. For win%, his worst slam is French at 83%, despite reaching at least semi-Finals on 10 occasions. Novak is the only man to have held all four Slams on all three surfaces. Rafa Nadal has the highest win% at Slams with 88%, winning 282 matches and losing 39. Djokovic is 2 at 87% with 296 wins for 45 defeats and Roger is 3 with 86%, 362 wins and 59 defeats. All 3 men hold the record for most slam wins at their respective best slam, though unlike the other two, Roger does not have the all-time best final record at that slam also, that Pete Sampras, who won 7 Wimbledon Finals without defeat.

The Tour

Typically at Fatlace we feature content that revolves around the automotive industry, extreme sports, hip hop, and the like. There are always opportunities to bring new flavor to an already thriving site and this is one of them. Tennis is a sport that I not only enjoy spectating, but have played and taught for the better part of ten years. Paying homage to possibly the greatest player of all-time and his latest tournament win seems comfortably appropriate. At 37 years old, Roger Federer is well past his prime in terms of age, yet continues to win tournaments while playing at a level that practically supercedes his youth. Roger became a household name on the ATP Tour when he really broke through during the early 2000s and won his first few Majors and Masters 1000s tournaments. His winning streak seemed unbreakable and after climbing to covet World No. 1 ranking, Tour experience proverbial changing of guard; dismissing likes of Hall of Fame greats such as Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras. His universal style of play and tenacious on-court demeanor withstand test of time on all surfaces for almost fifteen years. Federer has always been considered the King of Grass with his eight Wimbledon titles and eighteen overall Grass court tournament win, but his remaining 83 titles occur primarily on hard court and clay with occasional late season Minor 250 play on the carpet. Throughout his career, his rivalies have been rather minimal, aside from Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, and Andy Roddick. Each of whom he has beaten multiple times on sports largest stages being Australian, French, and US Open along with Wimbledon. The simple fact is that since 1998, Roger Federer has done something for mens tennis and sport in general that has yet to be top. Aside from having most Grand Slam singles titles in Open Era and stat sheet with more numbers than his Swiss bank account, he has inspired opponents on opposite side of the net and the younger generation of new players alike. 19 clay court season is right around corner and it will be interesting to see how he fares throughout the rest of his 21 years on the ATP Tour.

Conclusion

Watson worked on three aspects to arrive on conclusion relating to the GOAT debate. These aspects, namely best season, records, and game style, were arguments raised by fans to decide the greatest player of all time. Swiss Maestro Federer excels in all parameters. Looking at best season analysis, Federer has had arguably the best season any player would have had in tennis back in 2006. The 20-time major winner reached the final of all Grand Slams and won three out of them in that season. In all, Federer won as many as 12 titles that year and had an unprecedented win-loss record of 92-5. Secondly, when it comes to records, nobody may even think of touching Federer, let alone surpassing him. With the number of Grand Slams, Federer certainly skyrockets everyone. Moreover, his accolades are not limited to this record and there are so of them that it is impossible even to count them. Last but not least, Federer has the best game style in tennis. Swiss Maestros ' ferocious winners from baselines as well as deft touches at the net make him the most stylish player tennis has ever see. Add to that, Federers single-hand, clean as whistle backhand winner and Swiss has all the ingredients of a perfect game style. All these points of analysis prove that there is a lot of ground to be covered by Djokovic and Nadal to come into contention for numero uno position in tennis. Currently, Federer is missing from the Tour, recuperating from surgery on his knee. However, to the delight of tennis frenzy fans, GOAT of sport is aiming his return in 2021 and has made his intentions clear of playing in the Australian Open schedule in January next year. If that is not great news, then only God knows what it actually is! Also Read: WATCH: Umpire calls Novak Djokovic Federer while announcing, corrects himself quickly

Roger Federer's other standalone records

It take pandemic, Father Time and freakish disqualification for Novak Djokovic, but the big three's domination of Grand Slam Tennis is finally over. Djokovic's spectacular exit from the US Open for hitting line judge in the throat with a tennis ball could change the course of history. Only time will tell, but the immediate wash-up is both simple and significant: neither Djokovic, Rafael Nadal or Roger Federer, winners of the past 13 majors-and 56 between them-won't be extending their colossal Grand Slam streak. And Djokovic is undoubtedly a big loser, and not only in the race for All-Time record men's Major title winners. Just like Federer's gut-wrenching defeat to Djokovic in last year's Wimbledon final, from two match points up on serve in the sport's first-ever 10-All fifth-set tiebreaker, this miss opportunity will sting the Serb like no other. Unbeaten in 2020 and overwhelming favourite to take home the trophy, Djokovic, with 17 Slams, remains three behind Federer and two shy of Nadal. While a knee injury ended 39-year-old Federer's season some time ago and Nadal made conscious decision to skip the US Open to plot his assault on a mind-boggling 13 Roland Garros crown, Djokovic made the trip to New York for the express purpose of capturing 18 Slam. He is making no secret of his desire to catch-and overtake-Federer, as well as surpass the champion Swiss as the longest-serving World No.
