lets see how imaginative you are
make a list of 8 players (no need to be in any order, just 8 names) who would make a perfect masters cup - 8 players playing in their primes who would make the best possible tennis
(dont include wooden racket era because its tough to compare)

here is mine:
sampras
agassi
federer
nadal
courier
edberg
becker
lendl

what do you say?

In the graphite era that list you put on is perfect.

Great list. The only one on that kist I'd change is maybe to replace Courier with the one and only Gustavo Kuerten (who won it once and ended that yr at world no. 1).

I think it's a shame not to have Chang or Hewitt in there (not that they get even a fraction of a style point, but they make the guys on the list above REALLY SHINE, and that's why I would want them there).

Speaking of style points, I would love to see McEnroe, Noah and Ivanisevic in there as well. Rios, Stich and Safin, too.

Basically, I'm looking for a 16 man draw, LOL!

Okay, so here seriously, is my list:

The Pancho Group
Pete, Boris, Lendl and Nadal

The Laver Group
McEnroe, Edberg, Roger and Andre

Since it is often a quick indoor court, (sorry Andre and Rafa) the top two in the Pancho Group are Pete and Boris (but Rafa did get a win over Pete).
The Laver Group: Mac and Roger.

Semifinals:
Pete d. Mac 6-2, 7-6
Roger d. Boris 4-6, 7-6, 7-5

Final:
Roger d. Pete 6-3, 6-7, 7-6.

If they put in on a slower court, I think the final would be
Nadal over Andre 6-1, 5-7, 6-2.
