    @Longwood76,,,''What a great player??'' Are u on drugs??,,Ivan Lendl is the greatest player of all time,just look at the quality of players he competed against like McEnroe,Connors,Becker,Edberg,Wilander,Sampras,Chang....Now tell me now Mr/Mrs/Prof Longwood76,except from Nadal,is there anyone else that can really,seriously challenge Federer? Answer is simple: THERES NOBODY..and because of this,it appears that he is the greatest player because of all the tournaments he has won,but put him up against a 28 yr old Ivan Lendl,,Federer will run with his tail between his legs

    Oooohhhhh puh-leeeeaaazzzeeeee! Not another one of those: "Federer's not that good because he hasn't played against Connors, Lendl, etc etc etc"!!! Why is it so difficult to accept that the guy is the best there has ever been?? Sampras has said it, Edberg has said it, everyone has said it! Just enjoy the guy's awesome talent and class while it's there to enjoy and stop wishing for past greats to return. Wake up and smell the Federer express!!!!!!! Oh, and can someone please tell me how many Grand Slams Lendl has won...? What, four or something? And Federer? Oh, I see, 15! And still going strong!! Now that's quite a difference, isn't it? (Sincere apologies to Ivan Lendl, I think he was great with that small-headed wooden racket of his!)

    Roger was the best, is the best and better now - will be the best for years to come. Go Roger go

    Lendl was in 19 grand slam finals but conversion rate not that great winning only 9 or 10. Federer definately the best there has been. People think the competition is not great or has not been great but that is bollocks. Federerer has just been that much better than anything thrown at him. Thats the difference.
