    It's just sickening to see the amount threads regarding which player is better than the other.
    It just goes on and on and on.
    What's the sense of all these topics?

    The most of course regarding Nadal and Federer.
    But also most other ones.

    It won't be long or someone will try to explain why his favourite player is the best, from a quantum mechanics point of view.

    That's how this part of the forum is run. Player discussions and general comparisons

    I still think Davy is better than Nalby. What say you? :)

    No, not the T2000 obviously:?

    That's possibly the best selling, least rare racquet of all-time! And because it was so difficult to use by us "normal" people, most T2000 are also in excellent condition:)

    I'm after mainly Estusa racquets from later in Connors career:)

    It's either that or more butt picking and man purse threads. Take your pick.

    I agree with Djones about comparing players to a level where you're making excuses for their lack of wins against each other but comparing their technique and style is fine.

    Let's discuss that topic for days on end until someone gets too emotional and the moderators start handing out bans

    and then we'll do it all over again
