The greatest sportsman ever is such a subjective term, close to impossible to say. Unless someone comes along and has a McEnroe (84), Federer (2006), Djokovic (2011) year after year for a long ass time. Federer had some great years, though Nadal impeded that to a certain degree on Clay during Federers prime (2004-7).
Pretty much this.

Nadal is already breaking down, it will be interesting how he does at the French Open. Either way he has an built in excuse (a justified one at that) if he losses or better doesn't make it to the finals. But he may slowly creep up on Federer's total of slams if he keeps racking up wins at the French, and wins a U.S., Wimbledon, Australian here and there.
