Subject: If Federer was a yank he would have been called the goat already

Federer is being held to a new standard because he's swiss. and just
because 1 player can beat him consistently at the moment. no player in
history is going to come close the all the records Federer has matched
and broke since becoming number 1. if you look back at past american
number 1's who couldn't beat their rivals the media coverage was much
different for them. it was called a bad match up for 1 player. you don't
hear that with Federer and Nadal.

++ Basically that's true... and he's certainly been called the most
talented by many, many US tennis experts, players, ex-players,
journalists, etc.

It is a stupid argument because there is no such thing in tennis as a
goat. We can talk about records and who did better at what. The total
number of slams won will decide a players place in tennis history.
Sampras has 14, Federer has 13. Any questions?
