At least one of the greats is showing some pride when comparing himself to the players of today.

there is absolutely no denying that. everybody avoided the edberg backhand like a plague. the last thing you want to was a short high ball that goes to that side, because the guy following that ball is a monster slice and you're going to get slaughtered. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gZ-K0GQDHA

Yes, but too bad his forehand was rather weak. That open forehand grip was so retro and ineffective.
