    I am surprised this article made it past editors and proof readers to be frankly honest, poor sentence structure and grammar contribute to this poor excuse of reading material.

    • Any Mistake In Ranking?

        I’d put Lendl a bit higher, maybe ahead of McEnroe – He was just so consistent throughout his career and his haul of 22 Masters Series titles was a record until a few years ago, and he also won ALL of them. Nobody else ever appeared in 8 straight US Open Finals. Amazingly, Roger is still chasing a few of his records – he’s at 85 titles now but I don’t know if he’ll ever catch Lendl at 94. I’d also put Laver at #2 and Sampras at #3 – Nothing against Nadal but the majority of his success has been on clay. Sampras finished #1 in the world 6 straight years and dominated 2 of the 4 slams. Laver won 200 career titles if you count every tournament he ever played. He also achieved the holy grail of tennis by winning the 4 slams during a calendar year in the open era. Otherwise this is a great list.

      Why do you think Rafa is better than Roger?

      • Noah Yan

        he won only 3 less slams with far more competition, federer won in a weak era

        • Filbur Wagnarf

          Could you name any of Rod Laver’s rivals? I think he was in a weak era too. We shouldn’t count any of his slams as well.

  • PE FE

    Fedrer vs nadal face to face who has won more?

    • Noah Yan

      rafa, in fact last time federer beat rafa in a slam it was 2006 and rafa was super young

  • Udayan Khurana

    Boris Becker not in top 10???

  • vidyut

  • tokoloshiman

    Pancho Gonzales? John Newcombe?

  • Justin LeGross

    1. Federer
    2. Djokovic/Sampras
    3. Nadal
    4. Borg
    5. Lendl
    6. Laver
    7. McEnroe
    8. Agassi
    9. Edberg/Becker
    10. Emerson

    Federer is first on account of GS records and completness of his game, altough he’s got negative h2h with both Nadal and Djokovic, and in his prime I can argue that Sampras would obliterate him more times than not.

    Djokovic is a freak athlete, stubborn and refuses to lose, elevates his game to the point that he’s almost untouchable for everyone, with Federer and Wawrinka sometimes biting chunks left from him.
    The man completely transformed the game of today’s play to the point that Nadal, one of the greatest warriors of men’s tennis ever, can’t even hope of defeating him.

    Sampras was just a machine. He had everything developed to the max – serve, forehand, volley, backhand. Only thing that was lacking was his clay game.

    Nadal is a monster player, his work etic and resilience are unmached, but his results are vastly on clay, that’s why he can’t be higher on list. Still, his top spin and backhand drive are things to watch.
