The GOAT

Laver may be the greatest,
The historians opine,
Sampras may be the greatest,
The winners opine,
Federer may be the greatest,
The perfectionists opine,
Nadal may be the greatest,
The athletes opine,
Djokovic may be the greatest,
The rankings opine,
But when I hit that winner up the line,
I, I, was the greatest of all time.
