Most posters in this section - as you can tell from their views are clearly biased towards a particular era or player, even if they do not state it directly.
The thing is that I'm not sure about others but I always want the current best player to be the best ever because if that person is the best ever (imo) I know I'm enjoying the best possible type of tennis. I feel that way in every sport.
I think it's possible that Lebron James could be the best ever in basketball but I also believe that Michael Jordan, Kareem Jabbar or Wilt Chamberlain would be fantastic today. I think that Pedro Martinez could be the best starting pitcher I've seem but I'm sure Tom Seaver would be incredible in MLB currently. I think in the NFL that Peyton Manning or Joe Montana are the two best QBs I've seem. In tennis we have some current GOAT candidates in Federer, Nadal and Djokovic. Now I don't believe Nadal and Djokovic have done enough yet but if you project dominance in the future it is possible. I just enjoy watching what I perceive as greatness.
Incidentally PC is my wife's initials.
