Re: The greatest slam performances by a player

Of tournaments that I've watched it's got to be Nadal FO 2008. However, I'm partial to Edberg's 1992 run at the US Open where he beat Krajicek (in 5), Lendl (in 5), Chang (in 5) then Sampras in the final.

Basically any RG Nadal has won, but 2008 was simply flawless from the (clay) GOAT.

Re: The greatest slam performances by a player

Djokovic at least for one set could touch Nadal 4 years ago. Borg at his best RG was untouchable at any moment, ever. Answer is obvious.

Gasquet is next №1

Re: The greatest slam performances by a player

Borg R.G. 1978 according to the stats. Highest level of play winning a slam might be different. Very hard to judge if you didn't, for example, watch Budge in 1938. The highest level I've seen is probably John McEnroe winning Wimbledon in 1984, even though he lost a set in the 1st round. Greatest performance in a slam is a different thing again, & could include heroic overcoming of very long odds.

Re: The greatest slam performances by a player

federer's wimbledon in 2003 was genuinely exciting to watch, as he still played tennis at that point

also, djokovic in australian open 2008

statistically, i don't know how those compare to the best, but from a performance point of view, they were both great

also, sampras was rock solid in 1995, both at wimbledon and the us

don't think he'll be near the top in terms of stats though
