Default Greatest Grass Court Player of All Time.

There's been Federer and Sampras talked about lately, largely ignoring the earlier ERA's before Borg.

In those earlier ERA's grass was more prevelant so there may be other players who have some solid claims.

It isn't just looking at titles, grass used to come in variations that could change the court conditions quite a bit.

Here's some stats that I hope are accurate and give some idea what Sampras and Federer are up against.


Bill Tilden: 10 Grass Court Titles, Including 10 Majors on Grass

Roy Emerson: 10 Grass Court Titles, Including 10 Majors on Grass

Rod Laver: 39 Grass Court Titles, Including 9 Majors on Grass

Roger Federer: 12 Grass Court Titles, Including 7 Majors on Grass

Pete Sampras: 10 Grass Court Titles, Including 7 Majors on Grass

John Newcombe: 10 Grass Court Titles, Including 7 Majors on Grass

Fred Perry: 7 Grass Court Titles, Including 7 Majors on Grass

Ken Rosewall: 6 Grass Court Titles, Including 6 Majors on Grass

Bjorn Borg: 6 Grass Court Titles, Including 5 Majors on Grass

Don Budge: 5 Grass Court Titles, Including 5 Majors on Grass

Frank Sedgman: 5 Grass Court Titles, Including 5 Majors on Grass

Jack Crawford: 5 Grass Court Titles, Including 5 Majors on Grass
