Steffi Graf: 'Agassi thinks Rafael Nadal is the GOAT, not Roger Federer'

Who is the greatest player of all time between Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer? This is a question many people set themselves, including two legends like Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf. In an interview to Marca, Graf revealed something interesting.

'We always comment on it with Andre, the last time a few days ago in Paris. We have a different way to think. He is more for Nadal. I'd like you to ask him this question. You cannot interpret numbers sometimes. Both of them are unbelievable.

Let's wait they retire and then we will speak about who was the best. It's nice to see them playing alone and also when they face each other', said Graf, a 22-time Grand Slam winner. Graf also had an important factor in Agassi deciding to coach Djokovic last year.

'It's not that I forced him to tell yes but I know that it would motivate him. I knew that he thought that if he started travelling could affect the family but I told him to keep going.' Graf would not start coaching herself now: 'My priority is my family and the time I spend with my kids has no price.

I want to be with them as much as possible because in a short time they leave home and go University. That's when I may plan something related to tennis.' Graf also praised Serena Williams who came back to WTA Tour as a mother: 'What she achieved, in general, is unbelievable as well as the fact that she wants to keep winning as a mum.

I don't know how she can do it. I admire her fire for the sport. You can just admire her for what she does.' ALSO READ: Roger Federer: 'The end is closer than ever'
