The best way is to hear the testimony of their opponents as to how great their games were.

That is something which is not captured by numbers.

There is no need to be captured. Personal opinions remain personal opinions with all sympathies and antipathies.

I want to hear personal experience, not opinion.
Expressing the personal experience is nothing else but an opinion. Ferrer said that during his career his toughest opponent was Rafa. He had a lot of losses again Djok and Fed but he feels that Rafa was tougher. Just he felt so. That is fully personal and fully irrelevant to the assessment of the players' careers.

Some personal opinions are worth hearing, if the person has traded strokes with one of the greats. Ferrer's remark is worth more than an armchair evaluation.

Can you confirm that based on Ferrer's statement Rafa is the better player than Federer for you?

I have no opinion as to who is the greatest, I leave it up to the peer evaluation...I never traded strokes with Nadal or Hoad.

I think that most of his peers rate Fed number one. Maybe Nadal was tougher on clay.

Oh, you definitely have an opinion when citing and agreeing on Evans' listing. You have also cited and supported many other lists by other players during the years.
