Winning IS winning, no matter what the style of play. I prefer Federer's style to Rafa's but would rather have Rafa's H-H against Roger. I like Guy Foget and his game, but the fact that he May have had a better volley than Sampras of Becker in irrelevant, in that he didn't win many tournaments with it. I find it pathetic that some, mostly Federer fans, can't stop trashing Sampras and the great players of his era. Anyone who says 03-07 was not a weak era or Roger declined at 26, just can't handle the truth.
I don't understand what the bolded bit had to do with the opinion I posted?
And my point was that style is important in determining greatness when allied to success.
Arsenal have played lovely football, sumptuous at times, for the last eight years, but won absolutely nothing. Obviously, they cannot ever be considered a great side.
