I don't care if the list is about the greatest clay courters, greatest grass players or greatest hard court players, the vast majority of the open-era players are at the top.
Tier1(goat): Federer; Tier 1.5: Laver, Gonzales, Sampras, Nadal, Borg;
Tier 2: Lendl, Connors, Rosewall, Tilden; Tier 2.5: McEnroe, Agassi
