Leena's thread inspired this one :) The scene is the US Open Quarter Finals, with 8 of the best players from the 1980's onwards competing. All players are at their peak and are as determined as ever. Please select who makes it to the semis :)

Top Half

Pete Sampras vs Ivan Lendl
John Mcenroe vs Stefan Edberg

Bottom Half

Jimmy Connors vs Andre Agassi
Bjorn Borg vs Roger Federer

Weird, no-one thinks Pete would beat Lendl at their peak so far :confused:

Lendl at peak and at US Open = ROBOTIC HORSE MACHINE

Lendl's eight consecutive finals at USO is one of the most underrated achievements, but having said that, at his peak, he lost finals to Wilander and Becker. He also lost to a teen-aged Sampras in 90. So I just don't see a peak Sampras losing this match.

Borg, Connors were before my time but knowing that Borg could never get over the hump at USO (was he bothered by the conditions?), I can see Federer, in his 2004 Final form, edging Borg.

The other two are real tossups, esp. McEnroe-Edberg. Peak McEnroe is as talented as any player, and Edberg played one of the greatest matches of all time in 1991 USO Final against Courier.

I'd also think that Pete would beat Lendl, and Federer would beat Borg because Borg could never really do that well at the US Open.

I'd also go for Agassi over Connors, but I can't pick a winner of McEnroe-Edberg. That's a toss up.
