The best of all time is easily Nadal and there's no need to create a thread that everybody knows the answer to. Anybody who says otherwise is just in denial. There's never been a better physical specimen more suited to the clay court than him.

#1 Borg / Nadal

The rest don't really matter.

The bigger question, will Nadal be considered greater than Borg if he wins RG 2012?

I think he already is.
I mean, I know Borg retired young, but not only the French Open counts here.
Nadal has 16 Masters crowns, Borg has 8. Nadal will win at least, 2 more Montecarlos, one Rome (But that number is AT LEAST. He'll probably win 3/4 Montecarlos 2/3 Romes).

Yes, Connors is 5th all time, Clerc is 6th, on 300+ clay matches. Federer is actually 7th. Would have to go 17-1 to match Connors in wins/losses.

Wow, Connors was solid on the clay. I would say that Italian fellow who beat Borg twice at RG and won it in 1976(?). He was better than Borg's bendover pal Vilas.

How can people not put Borg in the top 5 ever on clay?

No love for Max Decugis?

Also surprised Bruguera isn't here.
