PC 1, those equivalents of different eras are quite fascinating. I would compare Becker to Hoad in some ways (i remember Maskell saying something like that, when Becker played a junior final with Edberg), Sampras to Gonzalez (big weapon serve), Edberg to Patty (both had fine backhand volleys), Korda or Leconte to Laver (fine lefty backhands), Pernfors reminded me of Rosewall (i know double hander). From what i have read, Trabert was a hard working pro, great on clay, a bit like Courier, although Traberts backhand was his strong side.
