Johnny Groove has definitely matured as a poster. A few years ago, this thread would have turned out differently. Well played, Johnny.
Well I certainly hope to have matured between the ages of 16 and 21
On another note, can you rank each of the 55 relative to their ability to win the coin toss?
It is common knowledge that William Renshaw never lost a coin toss.
Lendl didn't like being rushed on grass and Cash exploited it in the 87 final.
Agassi also had a bit of luck to get his CGS, although the surface difference then was vast. The funny thing is Agassi would love today's conditions- faster clay and slower grass are right up his street.
guga2120 indirectly praising Federer.
Becker did it too in the 86 final and in a few semis in other years. How would Lendl do on 2011 grass vs. Fed/Nadal/Djokovic?
You state those things like they are facts.
And on Rafa winning with a fast ball on fast court, did you watch the US Open last year?
I do hope Nadal adds to his resume. Another year or two as world #1 and a few more slams would put Rafa, my favorite all time player, I fully admit to bias, firmly into the top 10.

Agassi is fine where he is.
Not too sure about that. Lendl would have to maneuver Fedalovic.
Good point. Coin toss list please.
Are we talking coin toss era or pre coin toss era, where they flipped whatever was readily available? Racquet, chair, hat, wife?
