Andre Agassi has fanned the flames yet again in the never ending GOAT debate between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Last year Agassi ruffled many a feather stating Nadal, because he’s beaten Federer so many times, has a strong argument as the greatest of all time.
And now six months later or so, he’s sticking with Nadal as his man.
“I’d put Nadal No. 1, Federer No. 2,” Agassi told Singapore’s Straits Times newspaper. “Federer separated himself from the field for four years. He separated himself from Roddick and Hewitt.
“Nadal had to deal with Federer, Djokovic, Murray in the golden age of tennis. He has done what he has done and he’s not done yet.”
While Nadal isn’t done, neither is Federer who just had kid No. 3 and 4 earlier this week. And after Nadal missed a chance at a second Career Slam at the Australian, Federer gets another try at the French in a few weeks.
Nadal leads Federer 23-10 in their head-to-head but Federer holds a 17-13 leads in Grand Slams.
Warning: If you don’t want to talk “Fedal”, go somewhere else. In keeping with the spirit of this debate, this is an almost-anything goes thread.
