Re: Professor Johnny Groove's Top 55 players ever (Murray one slam away from making l

I'm not sure about Djokovic and Nadal taking Indoor giants Pete and Boris into 5 sets though

And yeah, maybe this Indoor tournament would have been best of all.. Pro players played almost whole career Indoors (night by night) and put them with greatest Indoor Open era players for some real tennis. No tie breaks or shits, go and make break to win set

Giving Nole and Rafa the benefit of the doubt, no way they'd win, though.

We should have Isner-Mahut as an exhibition indoors, 167-165 5th set

No way.

Indoor carpet would be the best IMO .

I think whoever won any of these would have to be insanely fit. Borg v Nadal, Pacho v Budge, Borg/Laver v Fed/Sampras, all would be incredible , I would head down to cashconverters to see

groove old bean! thats a marvelous idea

lets do a MTF definitive GOAT multi thread bonanza

the top 96 (or 128) male tennis players are draw in threads and we poll pick who wins

i think.......you cannot have current players involved though or it will become a federer nadal pissing contest- and ruin all the fun

so do the multi thread but have the condition that the player has had to have been retired for at least 5-10 years before he's eligible

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

Murray would be a matchup in hell for Sampras, dont think Sampras would beat him in AO, maybe not even in Usopen.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

Agreed. Hewitt would like wise be utter hell for post peak Laver and Rosewall IMO.
