If you go look at Tennis Magazine’s (click here) top 40 of the Open era, you wonder about two big things
1. How different will it be today, and it has just been three years…
2. That it is a little biased towards the modern era, and a little biased towards American players.
Will try a redux sometime, but here’s the end statement…
The greatest player of the Open era, Male or Female, if OBVIOUSLY Steffi Graf. One is blind (or biased) if one does not see it.
And this is for all my Boris-fan Pete-admirer childhood and adolescence, and genuine admiration for Martina, Chris, Sabatini and Seles. This is coming from a never-supported-Graf-in-any-tournament tennis fan.
But isn’t it obvious?
