it's clear that the poll hugely favours players from the 90s and 00s (for the latter : the ones who don't play anymore) because of the age of MTF members.

McEnroe is only just ahead of Borg in the poll despite playing until much later (Borg really stopped in 1981, his later "come-backs" were jokes), and despite, in the opinion of many ones, being much more entertaining (Borg was a huge star and hugely respected but his game was often not entertaining, and even, let's say it all, boring ).

useless old guy
