I would give the boot to Nadal, Lendl, Connors (inferior to Newk on grass, Trabert on clay).
Hoad still at number one, according to Gonzales (not a generous man), Rosewall, Laver, Buchholz (who played them all), Krishnan, ....
The guys who played against him know the truth.
Fed has only put in about ten good years, the same as Hoad.
And you agree that Mickey Mantle, Unitas, Palmer, Nicklaus, Hull, Mahovlich, Chamberlain, West would all be busts today? Right.
