Sedgman was quicker than Newcombe. Sedgman had a superior volley which some think is the best of all time. Newcombe had the superior forehand and serve.

I think the closest to Sedgman would be Edberg. Serves around the same level, both have been called the greatest volleyers ever. Both are great movers. Difference is that Edberg had a great backhand and Sedgman only a good one. I think Sedgman had the superior forehand.
