Interviewed by Tennis Smash, former Australian tennis player Todd Woodbridge, who won 16 Grand Slam titles in doubles, including nine at Wimbledon, has compiled his personal top-five players in the Open Era. He placed Roger Federer in the first position, saying, "Of all the players I've seen, Federer is the best of all times, who can play on all surfaces.
If it wouldn’t be for Rafael Nadal, he would have won more Roland Garros, and now maybe he would have 20 Slam titles. " Woodbridge sees Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal in his list. "Novak would be part of my top-five, for the way he has dominated.
He is admirable. I believe that before Djokovic I put Federer, Nadal and Pete Sampras. Other names should be Borg, McEnroe, Connors and Lendl. " The Australian also talked about Andy Murray. "Of all the no. 1's of the world I’ve seen, Murray would be placed in the middle of them.
He has won Wimbledon twice, the US Open and two Olympic gold medals. They are amazing numbers and he deserves to be the no. 1. I think the Scot will be no. 1 at least until next Wimbledon. " Source: Tennis Smash Also Read: Andy Murray is the less charismatic no. 1 in recent history. Or not?
