    Nadal = Ricky Hatton - both all action, give everything both brawlers / grinders.

    Pete Sampras = Mike Tyson - direct style who overwhelm their opponent with their sheer power and explosivness

    Federer = Sugar Ray Leonard - silky smooth, make the sport look easy / effortless

    please add more:)

    All of them would be like Malleswari. Not quite a boxer but close.

    I payed good money to see manny pacquiao v ricky hatton, and all i get in return was 7 minutes of domination. ^^^obviously manny pacquiao is the best in the world right now.

    i would like to see a floyd mayweather v manny pacquiao between the best 2 fighters in the world

    pacman would win. Floyd Mayweather is a good counter puncher, but he's never fought someone as fast as manny. manny by KO

    sorry, but when your virtually absent for a good portion of the season and get poor results in the two biggest tournaments of the year, it's pretty easy to claim that you're not the 2nd best in the world.

    so currently, nadal is not at the same level as pacqiao.

    not yet, mayweather hurt himself in training and is meant to play marquez. Winner takes on pacman.

    either way, pacman would win

    to me he isn't. when federer was playing horrific tennis during the hardcourt season, he didn't strike me as the no. 2 player either.

    i don't think there is anything official, but i'm sure it will happen sooner or later. there would be an insane amount of money involved for the players, the teams, venue, etc.

    ROTFL. Dude, which hat do you pull these names out of. You have me cracking up each day. IIRC, Malleshwari was caught doping, I mean who in the Indian weightlifing squad was not, sooner or later.

    btw, When will Sunny Gavaskar and Dhanraj Pillay make your posts. Eagerly awaiting.

    Federer would be Joe Louis- graceful, precise, extremely complete, maintains a frightening calm during competition, has the longest consecutive reign at the top of any champion

    Nadal is more like a Rocky Marciano- hardworking, durable, heart of a lion, great endurance, amazing accomplishments with what was criticized as an ugly and "one-dimensional" style, relatively short reign at the highest level

    Hewitt could resemble Floyd Patterson- youngest #1 ever in his sport, a relatively small guy, has a solid run at the top, but is eclipsed by some of the sport's greatest ever

    Roddick might be George Foreman- astoundingly powerful, but with gaps in his style, makes a meteoric rise to the top only to be dethroned by possibly the greatest ever in the sport, seems perhaps to have largely faded from the picture, but has a second renaissance later on in his career (this was a little bit more of a stretch)

    Ivanisevic reminds me of Jersey Joe Walcott- an extremely talented, but sporadic performer, who comes very close to taking the title of his dreams several times, always coming up just short, but gets one last surprise shot at an older age and finally pulls it off
