Hail to Becker - he is sorely missed.
Agreed. Rarely have I witnessed two players so evenly matched in skill. I really miss that period.
As much as I appreciate Federer, everyone (especially the tennis PTB/commentators/writers, et al) should admit Roger simply does not have the high level of competition faced during the McEnroe/Becker/Sampras overlapping eras. Roger has it easy with a field of laughably one-dimensonal, one-note players and a sea of never-going-to-be half-asses.
