Honestly..it's a popularity contest. Accomplishments (major titles) really are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to getting in. It's really about how well liked and how popular/visible/impactful you are among peers, fans, the game, etc.Funny, if the standards are too high, the list of inductees will shrink. Fewer enshrinements brightens the accolade, but could dull the lustre of the ceremony each summer.
With the domination of the big (3, 4), we will have some lean induction classes, unless they include some single slammers...."1 slam wonders"
This is the hall of fame, not the hall of GOAT or the hall of ATG.
Stich, yes, obviously.
Sergi, i am for it.
Krajicek, i am for it.
Korda....nah, sadly. Loved his game, but Petr would need a major PR campaign clearing him of PED use. I feel this way about Sharapova, but she has something Over korda. Number of slams, yeah, and also a certain intangible q factor.
One slammers....Thomas Johansson? Gaston gaudio? Albert Costa? JC Ferrero?
Current crop.....Hard not to simply project the enshrinement of Muzza and Stanley, and The Bryan brothers together. Leander Paes. Both Williams sisters. Well, as much as i do not respect her, I would think Sharapova would get in.
Marin Cilic? JM Del Potro? I do realize those two have a shot at becoming multiple slammers.
Funny how Todd Martin is administratively the guy behind the guys on this project. Or is he just a figurehead?
