Agreed. I posted a while back that with the dearth of grass court players in the world today - players that REALLY know how to play on grass - BB could come back right now and make an impact.
Some of my favorite matches were Becker/Sampras. That was a collossal match up and one of the best rivalries of all time. Epic.
Hail to Becker - he is sorely missed.
