Re: Greatest Tennis player out of these?
It's difficult, because the three have similar achievements, with the most obvious difference is Connors longevity.
I don't give it to McEnroe because he has the least slam titles (7) and in only 2 different slams. His FO results are pitiful, with only 1 final in 10 appearances. He also has no AO title and only one semifinal despite playing them during his peak years (with exception of 1984).
As for Connors and Lendl, they are quite similar in achievements (number of slams titles in theree diffrent slams and number of weeks #1) I'd give it to Connors.
Lendl played almost all slams during 1979 to 1994, and yet he only won the same slams as Connors, who didn't even play FO during hs peak years (1974-1978). Connor also had a AO title and a final in despite playing only twice in AO, and he had records number of slams semis that have been broken by RF. connors is also the only player to win USO in three different surfaces.
And the first player to win slams in three fifferent surfaces.
