1. Borg by far
2. Sampras big serve thats all
3. Lendl could have done even better
4. Mcenroe won some against Lendl by being a pain
5. Connors same as agassi eventhough he hated him
6. Agassi second fiddle like agassi and played for ever

7. Wilander as steady as borg
8. Edberg classic serve and volley
9. Becker kid dive boom charisma now a bigger head than mcenroe

Re: Greatest players of the open era

Impossible to do a ranking. It's like ranking these two cars, one is from the 60's, was a monster at the time and a beautiful object, the other is mythic brand and carries modern technologies, but it would make no sense to "rank" them. Both are great and make us dream, as Laver and Federer...

"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."

Exactly It makes me laugh when people try to compare today's players with old legends. It is not only impossible, but pretty useless ...

Re: Greatest players of the open era

ranking wise is tough as no sports has such either
Sampras in book is the best & greatest always
