Of course and some of these people who vote should realize that and at least attempt to understand the history and story of the greats of tennis.

Federer is obviously a great player but it does bother me when some refuse to understand that greats like Gonzalez had no chance to get to 17 majors because he wasn't allowed to play during his best years and even past his best years. You can't just count majors in the case of players like Gonzalez and many in the past like Tilden who couldn't travel from country to country in hours like they do now. If the Tennis Channel "experts" realized that and looked into the true accomplishments of these players maybe the list would have been far different.
