I still have nightmares about Connors to this day. I think that Federer may be the better player on paper (whatever that means), but Connors would just be too awesome to let Federer win easily. I think Connors could rattle anyone. He would kick over one of Nadal's water bottles and drink the other one, all while fist pumping and causing the crowd to roar.
