Impossible to do a ranking. It's like ranking these two cars, one is from the 60's, was a monster at the time and a beautiful object, the other is mythic brand and carries modern technologies, but it would make no sense to "rank" them. Both are great and make us dream, as Laver and Federer...

Exactly :yeah: It makes me laugh when people try to compare today's players with old legends. It is not only impossible, but pretty useless ...

ranking wise is tough as no sports has such either
Sampras in book is the best & greatest always
