Re: Is Borg grossly underrated?

who cares about a 2nd or 8th most important tournament?

When Borg played, the AO were meaningless.
And Wimbledon by far the most important tournament which..
US Open wasn't even best-of-5 for...

Re: Can anyone capture the 'Agassi slam'?

Agassi Slam is a zero feature, doesn't exist. So the answer can only be: yes. Everycone can do it.

Re: Slasher's Greatest of all Time List

We have to assume that everyone can calculate at least a little bit
And with such weightings the list is simply nonsense.

That's not rude.
It's rude to state the opposite without a single...

Re: Slasher's Greatest of all Time List

Nobody would really, I mean really, count one slam final more than 20 titles. Simply too obvious.


Would Roddick have a better career with 12 titles and an addtional slam final instead of 32...

Re: Slasher's Greatest of all Time List

You proved, that you don't know a good example to support your theory.
I would say, Emilio Sanchez of course.
Never heard of Kim Warwick.

Brad Gilbert would surely be forgotten with zero titles.
With 20 titles he is still remembered.

If your theory would be right, you would have given a better example. But maybe you thought about a...

Re: Slasher's Greatest of all Time List

no he wouldn't. Apart from that, reaching one final would already be forgotten.

20 titles appear in the statistics.
A final appears nowhere.

Re: Slasher's Greatest of all Time List

The list is nonsense.

Reaching a slam final would be equal to winning 20 titles.

Don't count reaching finals or semi-finals. Only winning is relevant for statistics.

MUrray is by far the greater player than vilas.

What did Vilas? Australian Open? in the 70ies? meaningless.

Re: Olympic medals mean nothing? Best players disagree

Federer did.
Ljubicic once said, that this was his greatest success (after winning a single match at WTF).

But that doesn't really matter.

Olympics are only relevant for tennis pros since...

Re: If Djokovic wins 14 slams, will he be greater than Nadal?

if he wins 14 he would be equalling Nadal in grand slam titles.

yes, he would be greater without a doubt.

Re: Which would you rather have: SOG or WTF title?

Corretja or Massu?

Corretja.

But he was the better player also on other stages. But he had the better career, without doubst. Massu has even two Olympic gold medals.

Re: What could a second SOG mean?

Djokovic did something, Federer AND Nadal couldn't do.

That means something.
He reached probably the highest level.

Re: What could a second SOG mean?

It's comparable with Davis Cup.
Players like Djokovic say things like "davis cup would be the biggest.. "
but in reality his career would not be different if he would have won the Davis Cup.

His service, ok, not as good as one could thought. mediocre placement.

Re: Is Becker the greatest coach of all time?

no, he is not the greatest coach of all time. It would be more difficult to coach an unknown player.
But he took responsibility, took the job and it worked perfectly.
Djokovic is better than ever....

Re: Is Becker the greatest coach of all time?

He made him nearly unbeatable.

Good to see, the tv stations only detect Becker in djokovic's box.
They are right. everyone else is not relevant.
