This one is for the Tennis fans......
Who in your view is the greatest tennis player - male & female
1. Pete Sampras
2. Roger Federer
3. Stefan Edberg
4. Andre Agassi
5. John Mcnroe
6. Boris Becker
7. Jimmy Connors
8. Goran Ivanasevic
9. Leander Paes
10. Mats Wilander
1 to 8 - Steffi Graf
9. Martina Nav
Especially on who's better between Sampras & Federer - Federer is all conquering but my vote is still for Pete for the foll reasons
a) Is / Was always a Gentleman first
b) Single hand down the line backhand - Need i say anything more ?
c) Nerves of Steel
Federer too is great
a) Angle....Angle...catch the opponent on the tangle
b) Magic touch
Upto now, both have a thing in common - haven't won french. Wish it stays the same....
French Open - Yuck !!!!!.. You could go around bangalore twice before a point ends......Worst still if the point goes to "Egalite" that's it......It is said that seats at french open are changed every year - why not ? After loooooooooong matches, the seat gets attached to the patron's rear !!!!!
Ban the tournaments on clay - tennis will be much better - i am even game for 4 Wimbledons a year....Tennis at it's best....
Why Leander ?
Well he is not Leander Paes….Actually he is “Lion Leander”…..Little man with a BIG HEART….His “sugreeving” (volleying !!!) is only next to Stefan IMHO. There isn’t a player greater than Leander when it comes to India’s cause, the type who would willingly walk on hot coals for India.
