    The record says Lendl. The heart says Goran or Safin, just for those few times when they played with real emotion and like gods. Nastase would amuse, but I just can't go for him because of the sportsmanship issues.

    Nastase in terms of shotmaking and plain tennis talent
    Lendl in terms of GS results

    Djokovic better than Lendl? I highly doubt that.

    Close?

    Lendl is lightyears ahead of marat "I play great tennis only once every 3 years" Safin.

    right now it's lendl easily. however in 5 years that might be different. if novak wins 10 slams he would be the number1. but that's a looooong way to go.

    On sheer talent, none of those clowns can touch Gulbis.
