Default Re: Who is the Real King of Grass: William Renshaw vs Roger Federer?

virtually no competition in late 1800s when tennis was introduced, not to mention it wasn't really an international sport at that time, you were typically only playing against played from your own country. lack of competition and depth of field obviously kills Renshaw's resume

Federer obviously probably is the much better grass court player, Renshaw's accomplishments could not parallel Roger's any more in the degree of difficulty when comparing respective times. there are definitely multiple other players who technically were 'better grass court players'
