Didn't William Renshaw and Richard Sears 25 sq in rackets?

That's nothing rosewall was able to hit 80 mph backhands with a ping pong paddle.

Nadal and Djokovic don't use 90 sq in frames, so the thread title is wrong

And with a tennis racket, he was hitting them at 100

The main thing that Sampras and Federer have in common is they both have single-handed backhands and both have great serves.

Good movers, slightly above average forehands?

Yeah but more curious about the single-handed backhand. What racquet sizes do other single-handed backhand players have?

Don't they also have in common more slams than Nadal?

Nadal is 25, so of course Nadal has less slams. He's not an alien you know. A 25-year-old with 14 or 16 slams :lol:

And that is because of Federer's superior H2H against Nadal ???

Hrbaty and Nadal have never met at a slam, ever.

They've met in Lyton 2003, Auckland 2004, Auckland 2005, Barcelona 2005. Nadal won Barcelona. Hrbaty won the rest.

I'm not arguing anything. I'm posting the FACT that Nadal and Hrbaty have never met in a slam. Maybe you should learn how to read before you post on a messageboard.

There is actually writing underneath the picture. It's only an image if there is no text. Once text has been added, the format automatically becomes 'text'. These are facts that I submit to you.

This thread was always polluted. OP couldn't even be bothered to spell Sampras correctly and post #3 disproves the OP's premise. Also, other posters chimed in with their own opinion of who the two greatest players were....Basically it was a mess to start with.

That's what happens when anyone brings up Nadal in a conversation that didn't initially involve him.

90% of the time, it's DjokovicForTheWin.

The main thing that Sampras and Federer have in common is they both have single-handed backhands and both have great serves.

Federer's serve, while effective, is not in the same league's as Sampras'.

Just like Sampras' ground game, while effective, is not in the same league as Federer's.

Ergo Sampras net game >> Federer...

Never knew Rod Laver used a 90 sq in racket. Interesting. And @zapvor claimed Roger was switching to a 95 sq in racket.
