GOATness (GOAT short for Greatest of All Time), nowadays, is getting increasingly harder to define, much of this is due to the incredible level of competition that contenders are facing. It used to be simple—weren't five straight Wimbledons or that rare career Grand Slam, enough to make it?
Apparently, for our era, even such ludicrous statistics, which used to be the pinnacles of the 1980s and 1990s, have become commonplace, or at least the well-guarded preserve of two tennis giants, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
With two Grand Slamists in our sights, with 25 grand slams between them, GOATness is reaching a whole new level.
Of course, things all seem so hard, and competition between our current greats, Federer and Nadal, seems at a fever pitch in tension. Nadal is hungry on his Swiss rival's heels, and Federer's keen to edge ahead in the stakes.
Here, however, are five statistics, that Federer has accrued over the years, which will probably never ever be emulated or surpassed in tennis history—save for the appearance of some true god on earth.
These are the definitive arguments of Federer's GOAThood.
