Ralph basically never let up in their rivalry unlike Pete who had freebies against freaking Pioline.
Petrosí career didnít need a full time rival because his era was far deeper than the current. When Andre was out of the equation you still had Courier, Becker, Lendl, Edberg, Stich, Krajicek, Rafter. All Hall of Famers. Then lower level guys like Chang, Kafelnikov, Korda, Ivanisevic that could pull out big wins no problem. This Generation you pretty much just have Fed, Nadal, Djokovic and only just recently Murray who are future Hall of Famers.
