    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

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

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

    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.

    no matter what thread is opened, no matter what subject is discussed, you can be sure that once the Nadal starts to pour in, any logical debate is over :(

    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.

    99% would've been an exaggeration, even if it feels about right. :twisted:

    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...
