Great player from Golden era of tennis played in fast Wimbldon finals and won Queens with his baseline game

No way Rafa is greater player then Ivan.. not yet

Pointless thread 'cos he's not close to retirement. He's greater than anyone at his age, clowns.

IMO, Wilander goes behind Boris and Stefan.. he achieved amazing things at the age of 24 but after 1988. season he just wasn't the same

Not ever.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

I feel he is knocking at the door of Bjorn Borg's spot, but I feel like he wont get there. Or maybe that is just wishful thinking.

Lendl and Nadal are very close ofcourse, it depends alot on what you personaly value. With Lendl you have longevity and consistensy wgile Nadal so far has more grand slams and the career slam.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

You think Lendl wouldn't have 3 Wimbledons with the grass today and you think Nadal would win one on fast low bouncing grass? Can't compare when court conditions are the same.

He isn't close to Lendl or to Borg.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
