    I know. Sampras could coast on his serve and still win the set. Good point

    No, I don't but don't act you're an angel in this. And you know what I'm talking about. Call me.

    Agree totally with your post. Of course Budge was superior to Riggs in 1942. My thought is that considering all the facts that Riggs was clearly superior to a weaker Budge and with Riggs' improvement I do wonder how strong Riggs truly was after the war. It would have been a heck of a World...

    Another thing we have to take into account is not just statistics but what is behind everything. We have to know the story behind the scenes. For example one poster was discussing a head to head tour which I felt he slanted everything toward one player. This poster did not mention after a...

    Trust me, it doesn't harm him. Sampras' Game Won percentages are in line with his record. Winning these close matches or winning or losing one sided matches are a part of the large sample of Games Won Percentage.

    We have all heard of the saying "For the want of a nail, a kingdom was lost." Well I think sometimes we forget that when in actuality we discuss who is the greatest or who are the greatest players of all time we are NOT talking about who has accumulated the most accomplishments. We are using...

    The formula actually is pretty good imo. Games Won Percentages are a very important criteria in evaluating the strength of a player over the course of a tennis season. It is arguably the most important criteria for a large sample size. The players with the most dominant seasons like McEnroe in...

    Of course all tournaments should be counted. It's ridiculous to analyze a career and only count the majors. That's why I provided links to those articles.

    I think Connors wins out over McEnroe. More majors, more tournaments won and higher lifetime winning percentage. McEnroe has more tier 1000 equivalents. It's close. Lendl vs Connors is interesting also. That's close in virtually every category.

    However my point was that Connors is one of the greatest players of the Open Era and frankly of all time. I think he ranks higher than many players who I believe is mistakenly ranked above him. I'm not saying he's number one but the mere fact that by some formulas he can be ranked number one...

    First of I do think Connors is sorely underrated because of an overemphasis on majors. Some formulas do have Connors as the greatest ever. http://www.tennis.com/pro-game/2011/03/science-answers-goat-question/28098/...

    I agree and I will try to elaborate on it more when I get the chance.

    Toben may be the GOAT if you rank for coolest players and he was the dad of Lars Ulrich of Metallica. :D

    Who are the best "smasher" all time?

    I might add Stan Smith for the backhand overhead also. He used to put away Laver's lobs with it. It was the best backhand overhead I've seen.
