Jeremy Bates isn't on the list

So I had to vote for Sampras. As much as I like the likes of Roddick and Ivanisevic there is more deserving players that should be on the list.

Where is Horst Skoff on that list?

Borg has only got 1 vote that is ludicrous.

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".

Goodness knows what Chang, Ivanisevic, Muster, Hewitt and Roddick are doing on that list, and Courier and for the moment Federer are stretching it as well.

Roddick has 3 votes to McEnroe, Connors and Lendl's 1, that says it all.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

OK, now he's got two. Unbelievable. Here's hoping the true tennis fans will come through in the long run.

That list is so dubious. Kafelnikov? Best tennis player ever??? Although you could say that about half the pple on there.

I think Andy Murray should be on the list, he deserves to be on it by the fact he's yet to win an ATP match

Re: Large online voting: Who's the best tennis player ever ?

Oh yeah, how could I forget Kafelnikov and Stich, they certainly don't deserve a place on a shortlist of greatest players ever. Half a dozen Slams needs to be a minimum requirement, start with Becker and Edberg and then go on from there to McEnroe, Wilander, Lendl, Agassi, Connors, Borg, Laver and Sampras. That's only ten players, a much tidier set of candidates.

Poor kid, its probably not even his poll. He's going to be driven off the forum with all this stinging criticism

Most people on here are smart enough to recognise that you don't shoot the messenger.

I just voted and noticed that Roddick, Ivanicevic have more votes than Stefan Edberg,
John McEnroe, Yevgeny Kafelnikov, Jim Courier, Ivan Lendl.

A very objective voting there
