    Let’s see if Nadal can win 3 GS’s in one year – 3 times! I’m not taking anything away from Nadal but I don’t understand all this hype about Nadal being the GOAT because he won 3 GS’s in a roll!
    I personally think they should be considered co-GOAT’s – a tie between the two! They are greats in their own separate way!

    Rod Laver did it – Grand Slam [4] 1969 – Stands alone
    Career Slam 1969 ties with Agassi, Fed, Nadal.

    I’m feeling really inspired by TP right now…so here’s a teeny weeny quiz for you guys 🙂
    When I look at this what comes to mind is how someone with enormous amounts of talent just didn’t rise upto his potential.
    Have a clue who I’m talking about ? No you don’t ! And no his name doesn’t feature on this list.Geez you toddlers 😀

    OK so here’s an obvious clue…Federer era …check out the years he won 3GS !
