Of course it is necessary
But ad a fan and game lover for decades I wonder if we are not obliterating a key concept:
Who is the greatest to watch?
Personally - Rosewall, Goolagong, Nastase, Borg, Mandlikova (when 'on'), Mecir, Rios, Mauresmo, Federer.
By reputation - Hoad
In a single match - Borg v Gerulaitis Wimbledon semi-final. Two players at their best for a whole match. The most continuously enjoyable match for quality of play I ever saw.
