Lightbulb Ivan Lendl's Career v Roger Feder's Career (NON GS Consistency Only, please)

Good Stuuf! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivan_Le...eer_statistics

Take away Roger's GS wins..for the sake of this post...I'd take Ivan Lendl's career any day, all day over Roger Feder's career, week end and week out..for sheer consitency and dominace. No? all with inferior equipment, faster surfaces on every surface, and playingmore tournaments than any other, except for Jimmy Connors, and maybe a few others... LOL

Just saying, at 31, lendl had 89 tournametn wins, to Roger's 77 wins at 31....so Roger, CAN be another Jimmy Connors, in longevity.... Lendl's severe back and disc problems did him in and out in 1994...

These are Tournament WINS ASIDE from his 94 ATP Tournament Wins... LOL

Now compare with Roger Feder's Career, (NON GS Wins)..... Pretty dominant? No? now you see Roger has a long ways to go... just saying... yes 17 GS is better than Lendl's 8...No question about it. NONE! Today's tennis fans and players have NO comprehension how difficult and FUN tennis was in the 80's PRE-Sampras era... just saying, using Today's players, with advanced technology, SLOWER courts all around...the players of the 80's era, had more challenges, tougher draws and faster surfaces, and smaller racquets to achieve more than most players are achieving still today... What Lendl did in the 80's is utter DOMINANCNE..not only did he win 94 ATP Tirels, but look at all the OTHER TITLES he WON outside of the ATP...is mindboggling....

Jimmy Connors has more overall wins....utter dominance. Connors and Lendl were FREAKS!!
Also Connors as he got older and slower got larger and larger racquets to stay in the game to compete with the younger players...so he played longer....

Discuss. Is Roger Feder GOAT, most likey, yes...does Roger have more GS than ANYONE? Absolutely. But is he as consistent as Jimmy Connors or Ivan Lendl were, year end and year out? Utter domiance? ? Nope. Not even close.
