BETTYJANE

What a refreshing read. Liking one player’s game more than the other without sounding nasty in the process.

    It’s a good read, but I like to think there are more than two top players in our sport. I would not call Federer the GOAT but rather the GUTN(greatest up til now). I can’t see Nadal’s knees holding up as long as Federer’s body has. Interesting that the writer pointed out Brad Gilbert’s lack of objectivity which has caused me to launch rants here on Tennis Planet.

    “That’s your GOAT [greatest of all time]” tweeted Brad Gilbert after Nadal had beaten Novak Djokovic in the final in New York. With trigger-thumbs like that you wonder how Gilbert ever got a job.

    lol Gilbert needs to be taken off the Air asap.

    Thank you, Bettyjane. 🙂

    This guy writes rather well. I do hope his next musings will deign to cover the possibility of being a fan who deeply appreciates Roger and Rafa equally, but for different reasons.

    These sportswriters do seem to get rather caught up in the binary.
