    Federer according to Lendl.

    I suppose I understand someone having the opinion Lendl does, but for me personally, and I do not play tennis, I think you must judge Federer by the whole Package not one tournament, no matter what tournament it is.

    Harwin, I do not know if I am the one you were meaning to respond to, but what did you mean by the question, "What About the 2008 French Open"?? I am being curious and nosy, I hope you do not mind!?

    roger can not be among the best since rafa continues to dominate him on clay. my opinion is if any player is to be the best they need to be able to dominate on all surfaces. now i know for a fact that roger will be going after rafa at wimbledon. it's just fast surfaces suit roger's game.

    Question

    I cannot totally disagree with you. To be the best ever I guess all surfaces need to be good on. The part that bothers me is that Roger is darn good on clay, only our Rafa blows him apart and he has been totally dominating else where for, I think I am right, 3 years??

    as long as rafa is around and dominating him on clay,it will be really hard for our man roger to be among the greatest. he will just fall into the class of pete sampras.

    Agreed. Once Roger can win the french, then I will consider him as " the best " tennis has ever had. Until then, he'll just have to beat Pete's major grand slam record.

    I agree, I did want Federer to get his 6th title this year (2008) but sadly I now have my doubts now that I see how good Nadal has become since winning the French Open for the 4th time !

    I always think is best to refrain saying anyone is 'THE BEST' especially sprotspeople until they retire.Roger to me is the best shotmaker I've have seen',his current record is amazing,in my mind to be quoted as the greatest tennis player in tennis you would need to have grand slams on every surface..while we have Nadal around I can't see Roger winning R/Garos,only if Nadal is injured.Nadal to me is better than Borg,I thought I would never see someone as brilliant as Borg on clay.Lets wait until Roger retires.

    Agreed, but the man needs to suck it up and get a coach. It's time for this if he is looking to break Sampra's GS record.
