Definetely Chang. Ivanisevic was a beast indoors and grass but he fluked a Wimbledon which cannot be compared to Chang's FO even though he did not have to face a claycourter and Ivanisevic faced a great grass courter.
so Goran's Wimbledon is a fluke but Chang winning RG at age of 17 was NID
Must be Chang but I can never forgive him for beating Edberg in that Final and preventing the most epic slam win. But as a swede it's hard to be mad at a 17 year kid that came out of nowhere. Borg won it at 18, Think Wilander was 17.
Chang turned out to have quite a nice career but compared to other very young FO winners maybe not. But I still feel like he overachieved
I think Ferrero is/was the most talented of the three. Shame that his career derailed by injuries/sickness otherwise he would probably had the best career
Well, avoiding his Wimbledon rival Sampras was very lucky.
I´d say Chang beating a choking Lendl ( one of the chokes of all time) and then facing Edberg in the final is pretty lucky as well. If Goran´s wimbledon win was a fluke, then so was definitely Chang´s RG.
The Ivanisevic,Davydenko and Ferrero fanboyism is irrealistic in MTF.
That's irrelevant to the fact that it was an impressive slam win. No bias there. Nadal RG 2008 was an impressive slam win and I can't stand watching Nadal play. As for your statement, exact same could be said about Delpo. And a lot of others

Ivanisevic's finals were all in the same slam : Wimbledon.
Chang in 3 different slams.
It was all in the same slam but it was THE slam. If a player is gonna win a major or come close to winning a major, they probably wouldn't pick AO, FO or USO, they'd probably like Wimbledon. Additionally, I believe that during the years Goran made the Wimbledon finals, the fields were loaded with anyone who could win it (even with Sampras in the draw).

I really love Ferrero and I think that he underachieved in his career. I was always his big fan. Chang was a big fighter. Goran, again could have done so much more. I just simply never liked his behavior on the court.
