Having had the privilege of seeing all 3 of them play, live, it's my opinion that Laver was the greater player. I'm not saying that Laver would beat them with a wood racquet. But, Laver was the greatest athlete to ever step on a tennis court, IMO, and, more than anyone of his era, had very modern strokes with heavy topspin on both sides, and would benefit from modern racquets to their fullest extent.
