Subject: How can anybody be called a GOAT when they haven't won in all


What kind of GOAT is that?. A minor GOAT?. A water down GOAT?. A

You have to be both dominant on tour and dominant on all surfaces.
Agassi is no GOAT candidate. But Laver is.

Laver only has to play two surfaces during his peak.
