You may be right but I'm trying to find a relative match to Trabert in recent times. Both good serve and volley who had good groundies. I think Trabert was superior on clay. Becker had the bigger serve but Trabert's serve was pretty strong.

For Sedgman I would think the relative match would be Edberg. Both are considered by some to be the best volleyer ever. Both had very good but not great serve and both exceptional movers. Sedgman had a superior forehand to his backhand while Edberg's backhand was superior to his forehand. In this case I could see Sedgman as the superior player.
