    thread will be closed either when a gap opens up between or when i decide because most mactches have gaps t6hat wont be closed


    OK so basicly I am gonna have 8 threads each with multiple choice polls where you will vote for 4 of the 8 poll choices.

    You are voting on who would win a match between player1 and 2, 3 and 4, 5 and 6 , and 7 and 8 in their prime or just upon who your favourite player in the match up is

    After a week of voting the poll will be shut and the winners will prodceed and so on untill we have a winner in 6 weeks time!

    Please do not vote for 2 players in the same match up as voting will be public and both your votes discarded!

    Match-ups (in draw format)

    Laver vs Edmondson
    Emerson vs Ashe
    Newcombe vs Nastase
    Rosewall vs Gimeno

    (the 60/70s draw is subject to change after this round)

    possibly controversial picks:

    Ashe because of what he did for civil rights, first black to win a men's GS title, and won all his when he was against pros, unlike Emerson

    Nastase because he is awesome

    What on earth are you jabbering? You've already started counting the various polls (80s & 90s...) before their closing date!
