I believe I just did in the post above. Again, I think you are correct if you are referring to the Pete of 1999 - present. But if you look at the bulk of his career, he was often referred to as one of the most complete players of the Open era. Obviously Federer has trashed that claim soundly in the past 5 or 6 years, but at the time, practically the entire worldwide tennis community praised Pete for his movement, his attacking game and his transition. I know one or two matches here and there can never tell the whole story, but if I had time I'd look up thenumber of DTL BH Winners Pete hit against Andre. That's probably his worst shot, and he'd clean Andre's clock with it. I sat right by the court once when they played in San Jose once. I think Pete won 2 and 3 or so. Pretty routine. At least 8 smoking BH winners from just behind the baseline. Seriously, Pete used to be good from every single square inch of a tennis court (not just on serves and volleys). In fact, I'd argue that his volleys weren't really Top Tier (Edberg, Mac, Rafter, Roche, et al). Oh, and, by the way, I'm biased. I played in some of the same tournaments Pete did as a kid. In 14s, the kid was one of the best backcourt players ever. Like Borg almost, with a little Jimmy thrown in. But shy, stoic and quiet like Laver in a way....with the gawky, skinny, lanky body of a geek. I remember him as a tall kid, too, but I guess he stopped growing at 16 or so. Anyway, sorry to derail the thread.
