Re: Greatest Wimbledon Champions of all time: Experts Pick
They are both all-time Wimby greats. Neither are THE all-time Wimby Great - Sampras and Nav still hang on to those positions, unless one wants to be picky and go back to the days of William Renshaw and make an argument for him.
Win or lose, neither Venus nor Roger will become the Wimby GOAT this year.
My picks for Wimby this year are Serena (edging out Venus) and Roger.
Co-sign. I really think that Serena and Venus are on the verge of putting on one of the best women's matches that we'll see...much like Roger and Rafa did for the men last year. I also think that Roger is ready to add to his history - not only win #15, but become one of the few players to complete the French/Wimbledon double. That's history too. It's going to be an exciting fortnight!
