Who is the greatest tennis player of all time.This debate will never stop some will say Federer,some Sampras Borg or Lavor,for me it is hard to judge. Every tennis great has been a part of greatest matches we have seen time by time either you say you loved the rivalry of fedex Nadal,Sampras Agassi or Borg Mcenro, it doesn't matter which Rivalry was more entertaining my personal favourite is Federer & Nadal. I have not seen that much of Sampras Agassi but what i have seen was equally fun to watch as Fedex Nadal.

Tennis has been changed through out every era so u cant say Borg is greatest or Federer for me all the players have inch of a difference but we have to give someone a tag of being greatest tennis player of all time. The greatest tennis player by my point of view is definitely Roger Federer. He has won 15 Grand Slam in just 6 years which Sampras took nearly 12 and Borg took 7 years too win his 11 Grand Slams. His consistency in GS semi and finals makes him even more special and those memorable moments of magic he gave us and hopefully he will not disappoint us in future.

My second pick or may be second or may be he was the greatest Rod Laver  Australia who was the world no 1 player for seven consecutive years, from 1964 to 1970. He is the only tennis player to have twice won all four Grand Slam singles titles in the same year— first as an amateur in 1962 and second as a professional in 1969. He is the only male player during the open era to have won a calander year Grand Slam.

My third pick would be Bjorn borg simply because he was magical athlete may be he have added couple more GS to his tally but his retirement at age of 27 didn't helped him.


My fourth Pick would be Pete Sampras arguably the best server of all time and his rivalry with Agassi was so fun to watch just like Roger and Rafa u can not pick a winner.He is the oldest player to win a GS that make him great to will Roger manage to do that achievement.
