^^^i get that it's impressive but like I said I see things differently. To me pre open era player cannot be goat, end of story. Too far back, too different from contemporary game, too many variables. Do i know for a fact that Tilden would dominatw today? Hell no it's completely speculative no way of knowing. But its other things that put these guys out of contention for me (i.e. Tilden seemingly wears long pants and from footage I've seen is more of a casual tennis than full blown tennis epics and atheticism). That's just not relatable to modern tennis to me (didn't they also have to serve differently with one foot at the ground at all times?). Sorry if Grammatical errors typing from phone
