Re: The greatest slam performances by a player

RG 2008 was amazing. The easiest slam to watch for me, ever.

And that final...

Federer in any slam he won from 2004-2007 because it was the strongest era in history.

So either you assume everyone is your age, or what I was watching since mid-sixties only became tennis in the 90s/2000s - sheesh



"When I'm asked, how is it to be around Federer, and what is he really like, I always reply, "I wish people could meet him when cameras or an audience aren't around, as he is one of the nicest people I have ever met when stringing on tour. " -- drakulie

I think Nole's Australian Open run in 2008 and 2011 was really great.

Re: The greatest slam performances by a player

Don Budge is the GOAT and his performance at Wimbledon on FAST courts (which makes it much harder to break serve) without dropping a set in 1938 is the best.

On Murray

I saw 70s tennis myself (though not a lot of it) so I'm voting for Borg here.
