Re: Professor Johnny Groove's Top 55 tennis players of all time (Djokovic up to #31)
You can not compare Lendl and Nadal!!! Rafa is biggest joke of Indoor tennis and Ivan won almost the same number of titles Indoor and Outdoor (probably best Indoor player of Open era). He won 30 titles (1 or 2 more or less) on Clay, Hard and Carpet and no one can could come close to that
Not to mantion that he is best player of Golden tennis era, on 4 different surfaces and with such great opponents. And work he done to win Grass Major was outstanding.. he changed his game completely (150 times on the net in AO 1/2 against Cash in 1987) but it just wasn't enough.. even with 7 1/2's and 3 finals of Wimbledon
