This is my first thread on MTF so don't kill me.
There is an obvious difference between playing ability and actual acheivements. For instance Rios/Nalbandian never won a slam but Thomas Johansson did?
With reference to the WTA, Serena Williams has a low number of slam's compared to the greats but is cited by many commentators, such as McEnroe, as having an equal playing ability when peaked.
So this thread is for us to discusss who is the best player when 'in the zone' or at their 'peak performance'.
The options are (open era only):
- Marat Safin
- Pete Sampras
- Andre Agassi
- John McEnroe
- Bjorn Borg
- Rod Laver
- Jimmy Connors
- Ivan Lendl
Please state otherwise if their is a glaring ommission.
