Top Ten Best Grass-Court Players In Tennis History
The Top Ten
Federer might be #1 but the person who said he plays in the toughest competitive era, particularly on grass, needs to put down the crackpipe. Federer plays in by far the WORST grass era ever, his biggest competition is a clay (Nadal) and slow hard court (Djokovic) specialist, both whose worst surface is grass. And Murray, woop dee doo! Sampras, Borg, McEnroe, Laver, all faced light years stronger grass competition which is one reason they all have less Wimbledon titles.
Obviously the king of grass, we can all guess how many GS titles he would have on the green surface if like in the sixties 3 out of four were played on grass. He is also successful in the toughest competitive era.
After failing to get past the quarterfinals in 2010 and 2011, Federer won his seventh Wimbledon title in 2012 at the age of 30
Beat Martina at her best in 88 and 89..proof she is better than her. Athleticism beyond compare and quickest mind ever. Could pull out sensational winners in a way that no other woman has ever been able to do. Best in long rallies and the shortest..Roger, as amazing as he is, is not the best in the mens game in longer rallies, both Rafa and Nole are better
I have seen a player play at the level Steffi did. Her thought process was so clear and concise and she more weapons reliably at her disposal than any other. Miss her terribly
Took the grass court game to new heights, surpassing the brilliant Navratilova even. her speed, agility, class, intelligence made a mesmering cocktail. Shame she didn't play a couple of years more - what she achieved by the age of 30 will never be bettered...
Her slice was lethal on the grass, barely getting up an inch off the ground..ask Seles! Grass needs athleticism and Steffi is widely recognised as the greatest athlete to every play tennis. Beautiful to watch
Prime to prime Sampras beats Federer on grass, no question. 7 times out of 10 at least.
He has a 57-1 record at Wimbledon, only lost with Federer in 2001
Never lost a match on the court at Wimbledon, won six Wimbledon titles from 1919 to 1925
Laver won nine Grand Slam titles on grass in a period when three of the four Grand Slam events were played on grass
She won 15 Grand Slam singles events played on grass, eight Wimbledon titles and seven U.S. championships
2 titles for a spanaird, who is best on clay. 2, 5 set finals against Federer, (1 win, 1 runner-up)
The KING of clay! Such a class act.
Number 1 with 9 Wimbledon singles titles
11 Grand Slam titles on grass
Should be at the top 5 in my opinion.
Won 10 Grand Slam events on grass, three at Wimbledon and seven at the U.S. championships
Great grass court player but surprisingly did not do very well at Wimbledon.
23 grand slam titles
