Yeah,I think that Fed,Rafa...and now Nole...are awesome players,but they're no better than the legends I listed above...at least not significantly...if at all and,IMO,any sport should be at least somewhat ashamed when all the biggest championships are won by three teams or players...and,as I've said in the previous paragraph,I'm gonna laugh in the apologists' faces if they feed me weak propaganda lines and expect me to swallow them like some blinders-wearing religious cult member
For the record,if Murray ever breaks through,my hat is TRULY off to him

Ste. Kim, we didn't have you for long enough, but we appreciate what you gave us
Our Slam: Islas Marias Prison Island Open--Benito Juarez Open(red clay)--Mazatlan Open(LOTS of Mexican 'grass' AND 'sugar')--the Mexico City Open(VERY poorly attended b/c almost NO ONE can get thru the traffic)
