MSNBC.COM'S BUD COLLINS TABS HIS TOP 5 MEN.



Bud's preface

The assignment: Select the top five men's tennis players of all-time.

This is about as simple as picking the five most stunning mountains in the world.

Over the years, as the game has evolved, made new demands of professionalization, and spread farther across the planet, at least 25 players are genuine candidates for the quintessential quintet.

To my mind, greats of one era -- Big Bill Tilden, the paragon of the 1920s, for one -- would be greats in another, adapting to changes in conditions, equipment, and methods.

Although there are more very good players today than ever before, true greats are scarce, as they always have been.

So here are my five, in their order of appearance on the scene


@ Bud's Perface.


Bill Tilden
United States


Pancho Gonzalez
United States


Rod Laver
Australia


Bjorn Borg
Sweden


Pete Sampras
United States.

I think his mind is effected by old age, Pete is far ahead of Fifth, at least he should be second.
