Boredone, I think that's a valid point. There are other players that are less accomplished overall, but still exhibited great peak level of play.

Also, I completely agree NatF. There is quite a bit, but with the HD video and crystal clear audio, modern tennis can be seen in a way that it could not before. Plus, the editing capabilities these days make those great Video highlights amazing. I know this is not shotmaking based, but this is some good stuff as far as Borg, Sampras, and Federer. Watch Borg and Lendl here, with old technology indoors and on clay, as well as video of Borg vs. McEnroe, Connors, and Vilas, on varied surfaces.

Bjorn Borg defied analysis. No one could manufacture a man that won 6 French Open and 5 straight Wimbledon titles. - Andrew Longmore
