Who caught Laura Robson yesterday?

The sweetheart 14 year-old whippersnapper Brit who won the Jr. Ladies Title at Wimbledon?

She's awesome and is now my favorite tennis player of all-time.

Meet the future of women's tennis in England...



Interviewer: "What would happen, Laura, if you played Venus Williams here next year?"
Laura Robson: "I would take her down!!!"

Then there's Björn Borg. Five Wimbledon titles (same as Federer, who might break that record tomorrow), four US Open titles (same as Federer), and no Australian Open titles. The only major difference between the two is that Borg was very successful at the French Open.

If Federer continues to play at his current standard over the next three or four years, there is no doubt in my mind that he will meet and exceed Sampras' grand slam record. He might not be able to be able to dominate on clay like Borg (or Nadal, for that matter), but I think he will certainly surpass him on every other surface.
Exactly. If Sampras had won in Paris, there's no doubt he'd get the "greatest ever" mantle - as would anyone winning most tournaments and dominating on all kinds of surface. I would also argue Sampras had a stiffer competition in the 90's in Agassi compared to Nadal (or even Djokovic) but anyway.

Which is why he's not declared best ever, just like Borg (who'd be my pick for the domination and the legend players he was up against). Then again, how about Australian Rod Laver who won 2 Grand slams ?

Sure he'll probably get past those 15 titles and yes he's great on all surfaces but IMO to be the best that has to include winning on all surfaces.

All that said, come on Nadal !
