"If Martina Navratilova is greater than Novak Djokovic, Margaret Court is the GOAT": Journalist takes shot at Djokovic being seen lower than Navratilova in all-time conversation

Sports Journalist Sam Street has taken a stance against the narrative that Djokovic can't be the goat because of his lack of doubles tennis success.

Novak Djokovic hasn't played much doubles tennis in his life and some have started arguing that that should be held against him in any GOAT debate. People are debating whether Martina Navratilova who won 166 singles titles and 177 doubles titles in her career. Street is not a fan of that way of looking at the debate and he even pointed out a major flaw.

If you apply that logic then Margaret Court should be the goat cause she has more titles than Navratilova albeit not all of them were in the Open Era. He wrote on Twitter:

"If Martina Navratilova is greater than Novak Djokovic because doubles titles have to be included as well then Margaret Court is the greatest player of all time, and I don't think tennis journalists want to go there no matter how much they hate Novak."
