Rosol, Gulbis and Volandri immediately spring to mind. If we do it right, this could go all the way back to William Renshaw's time, lmao.
Excellent! That's certainly a great idea.
I think we have 2 different ideas based on roughly the same concept:
- The one you propose, based on demonstrating that C-list players beat the greatest players of all time indirectly.
- Make some analysis based on matches between players of overlapping generations and extrapolate to create a sort of uniform quantification which might provide The Holy Grail of TTW Forum (an answer to the old age question of WTF is the GOAT).
