Anyway this not even close, Federer is the GOAT on the mens side, Serena is still a notch or two behind it.

Slam wise is close, Federer still leads, carreer wise there is no comparisson, like around 50 more titles from Roger. Consistency at the top of the game. More dominating while at the top (3 slams in 3 years , Serena only managed this only once, all 4 grand slam finals in two consecutive seasons, Serena has NEVER done this).
Career Titles:

Federer - 76
Serena - 48

However, keep in mind that Serena hasn't even played her 700th career MATCH, while Roger's played almost 1100 matches.

And, not only has Federer played more matches than Serena, he has missed 0 majors since 1999 when he lost in the qualies for the AO. Serena has missed 11 majors (including 3 where she was the defending champion: 2003 USO, 2004 AO, 2011 AO and 2 where she had won the slam prior to the one she missed 2010 USO, 2005 FO...and of course the 2002 AO).

So, a little perspective is necessary...

Serena's career W/L: 84% Roger's: 82%
Serena's finals W/L: 75% Roger's: 69%
Serena's major W/L: 87% Roger's: 87%
Serena's major finals W/L: 79% Roger's: 71%

Roger has numbers, but it's not like his career is WAAAAAY better than Serena's.

Now yes, if we talk about years winning multiple slams/reaching multiple finals, sure Roger comes out on top:
Years reaching 4/4 Major Finals: Roger: 3 (2006, 2007, 2009) Serena: 0
Years reaching 3/4 Major Finals: Roger: 2 (2004, 2008) Serena: 1 (2002)

...but:
Years reaching 2/4 Major Finals: Roger: 1 (2005) Serena: 5 (2003, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012)

...and if you want to talk about "dominance":
Majors won without dropping a set: Serena: 4 Roger: 1

Who cares. They are both incredible sport stars and all-time greats. Why bother comparing?

Yes but Capriati is a 3 slam winner, she's in Sharapova's league. Not GOAT league like Serena with 15 slams or Roger with 17 slams. The stat is relevant.

Re: Greater GOAT?

at people who take the results of Tennisforum polls at heart... if there was a poll "Who is greater between Serena and Nancy Loeffler-Caro", Caro would probably still get 20% of all the vote ...

Re: Greater GOAT?

Haven't seen Federer lose to a Razzano like player in the opening round of a grand slam or even a Jill Craybas type player in a grand slam.

Nice edit


Does that also mean that Steffi is less great because no one else in her era won double digit majors?

Yes but that's all he had. Serena has had more rivals in Justine, Venus, Hingis, Sharapova, Clijsters - all are HOF worthy careers with multiple slams.

Nice try, try again.

That's her only 1st round loss and came after she turned 30. Federer lost in the 1st round of slams 6 times.

Not surprised though because with Serena still beating a lot of their favourites, they're so bitter this is the only way they can beat her back.
