    Who's the best tennis player in history (without being biased)

    Without being biased, what do you think?

    *Your love makes me strong. Your hate makes me unstoppable!
    Ronaldo (The Brazilian)
    *Life is like a roll of toilet paper! The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes.

    I am not sure if he was the best but for me with my limited knowledge he was the best ...the cool Swede Bjorn Borg ,as a teenager I always wanted to copy his cool acts and impeccable manners in the sport arena .

    He was the reason I started following tennis on TV and started learning to play and even become a member of a tennis club , 5 times Wimbledon champion and a real gentleman .

    The modern athlete is vastly superior. In terms of technique, physique and dependability no one in history can match Roger Federer. He's pretty much as "perfect" as a tennis player has been.

    Nadal's stamina and passion surely destroyed Federer's seemingly invincible status. Nadal had to work twice as hard to keep up with someone like Federer, but again, efficiency is a factor and Federer is the most efficient tennis player in history.

    Nadal, Jokovic and Federer are the best.

    Nadal plays a very injury prone style but if he is on his best game, nobody can beat him. I still think he will win more grand slams than Federer.

    Captain, thank you, thank you very much for all these passionate years you have given to your Real Madrid to my Real Madrid. I will not forget you because, among other reasons, I do not want to forget you. No matter where you go know that I love you , Real Madrid loves you. HALA MADRID

    Voted for Sampras only because I'm biased as he is from our neighborhood. His sister in law is my daughter's teacher too. A great humble guy.

    Havent watched much Tennis in the past few years due to
    lack of talents and characters in the game. As an example
    a player like Andy Murray wouldn’t even get into top 10
    In the mid 90’s. The standard is not what it used to be.

    Best players ever:
    On Clay surface is Rafael Nadal just ask Rodger Federer.
    On Grass and hardcore surfaces, Pete Sampras.

    Here is an interesting video on all head to head match points between Federer and Nadal:


    *Your love makes me strong. Your hate makes me unstoppable!
    Ronaldo (The Brazilian)
    *Life is like a roll of toilet paper! The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes.

    Here is an old charity double between all 4 of them:


    *Your love makes me strong. Your hate makes me unstoppable!
    Ronaldo (The Brazilian)

    Ahhh Tennis, so much to play, so little time.

    In the old days no matter how much you prayed, McEnroe could not lose. I think Federer is likable player and Nadal superior at times. I was also following Chilean Gonzales for a while, he did fade.
