Why is there even a thread for this garbage? Sampras is 10x the player Clowners was.

Can't believe some people would take this list seriously. How does this even get reported? Obviously this "doctor" knows nothing about tennis and his model is flawed. If you put garbage in your computer model you get garbage out.

If you put Lendl 10th when he won 8 GS (11 times runner up), was number one for 268 weeks, won 5 TMC (4 RU) and won 94 titles, it`s a stupid list.

By the way, there is no way Connors is ahead of Federer in a statistical ranking. And no way Lendl is behind of Djokovic (!!!)

Who in their right mind would put Connors ahead of Federer or Sampras?

Err...In the past 5 years, a declining Federer has won 5 slams, which is only 1 less than the current world number 1 has in total. And while the death of fast surfaces started under the nose, it's peaked since then. The average age of a professional tennis player is 26.5, Federer is 31, and regardless of what you think he was in his prime, he is clearly not the same player he was then. The last time Federer was anything close to a complete player was 2009 - and he's still won 2 slams since then! There has been 5 slam winners in the past 100 to win over the age of 30, and they were before the game became the athletic grindfest it is today.

And speaking of past their prime, Hewitt still looks better than most of the tour despite not being anywhere near his prime in years. Even Nalbandian had moments of brilliance in the past few years despite being over the hill and out of shape.

Also, Baghdatis is closer to age to Nadal than the generation you are talking about. He peaked early. If you are going to play that game, you can mention a player from Federer's generation who was a nobody until recently - Ferrer.

I don't consider Federer anything close to the GOAT and I'd take the 90's and both early and late 80's over the mid 2000's, but Federer, Safin, Hewitt, Roddick, Ferrero and Nalbandian only wish they were younger, they'd clean up nowadays. Hell, second rate players like Gonzalez and Davydenko probably could have won a slam had they been a little younger.

The last 5 years have been the nadir of tennis history.

Oh, come on. Sampras had Wilander? Whatever did Wilander do in Sampras' years that merits mention? He never even reached a slam QF after AO 1990, and was ranked outside the top-40 for all of the 90s. You're just trying to pump up the era's supposed difficulty by throwing in players with name recognition here.

Federer's competition was in no way easier than Sampras. The fact that Pete had more old stars that hadn't got as far as retirement yet doesn't make his achievements greater. Just contend yourself with equal.

Connors had a better backhand and return than fed. And a better bowl hair cut....

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

Lots of exaggerated whining about this, but if you read the Conversation article he's pretty open about how the model might be biased towards Connors. That's how statistical models work - you make a hypothesis, measure it then see how it could be improved. At least there's some actual objective methodology here instead of just plucking names out of thin air.
