People constantly overstate how similar the surfaces are. There are many examples that suggest otherwise.

No, no, no! Roger has a classical game so it's even more impressive!

Love how people neglect the fact that even when 90's generation players play in the 00s generation they won't necessarily be able to utilize the maximum out of the modern technology. The ranking probably would have changed around if tennis back then was played and trained the way it is now. Not everybody is physically gifted to suit the modern style of game.

The BIGGEST (borderline delusional) fan of players on General Message Board according to Forehander:
Grigor Dimitrov: FedererBulgaria
Borna Coric: Crowdmaker

Tommy Haas: Leng Jai
Sebastien Grosjean: Myself
Novak Djokovic: Chiico (Leader of the No1e Cult)

ok, if this is true then Del Potro would be a mug if he doesn't ever win Wimbledon, and Roddick would have underachieved for not making at leas the finals of the French.

Sad to see what should be the ultimate goal in tennis reduced to a back and forth grand slam exchange between the top players There really are fewer and fewer records left that matter in a historical context.
Finally, two words of truth-- EVEN I, meaning: THE BIGGEST LIER ON MTF, ULTIMATELY DISHONEST PERSON WHO THINKS HE CAN MAKE ANY STATEMENT AND ANY PROMISE IN HIS SIGNATURE, KEEP IT IN POSTS FOR LONG TWO MONTHS (AT LEAST), THEN TAKE IT OFF AND PRETEND IT NEVER EXISTED!

Well, we still remember it, asshole! GET OUT OF GM or put Rafito (preferably with USO trophy and No photoshop!) on your avatar and start praising his game! Especially since there is so MUCH to praise!

Borg did or at least he was winning French Open with Wimbledons back to back and could play really well on HC also, in the seventies with wooden rackets.

I don`t see as to why it easier as Borg he is not on another level than Nadal, actually quite similar in many ways.

We are simply living at quite possibly a time where the best two player in history playing together overlaping. They are like a Sampras x Agassi upgraded in every sense. So appreciate it.

Wow, just amazing, these MTFers . Now all career Grand Slams are easy as pie all of a sudden. I guess you and I can go and dominate the tour in this era.

My big issue in todays era is why Wimbledon changed its grass to slow it down? Players who never thought they could win the slam now do while other slams never changed

Rebound Ace made the AO more attractive to the top players

Hewitt and Nadal seem unnatural Wimby winners because of the surface change

as brad gilbert said, 2010 is the greatest year in tennis history. winning the 3 most important slams is legendary. it takes amazing talent, skill, and determination to achieve such an incredible year.

Federer couldn't even scrape together RG+USO in the same year in his prime. And now Nadal won 3 consecutive slams in the same year on 3 different surfaces. No wonder Fedtards are furious.

My god, some of the arguments are really stupid, from both sides, but this is the most stupid. Federer is 5 years older and played many more GS tournaments.
