Everyone will like their favorite, but there is no denying that some of the most sporting moments have been witnessed on the holiest tennis court. This sacred place has witnessed various special events over the years, such as the spectacular victory of Andy Marr. Scott became the first British player in more than seven decades to win Wimbledon and thus became a legend.
There were also five sets of thrillers on Center Court in 2006 between Swiss sensation Roger Federer and Spaniard Rafael Nadal. After about five hours on the court, Nadal won with the light of day and it is considered to be the longest single final history.
At this particular moment, Nadal tried to hold both the French and Wimbledon titles at the same time. Only two from the Open era, Australian Rod Laver and Brajan Berg were able to achieve this.
Whether it’s about the trophy or the impact of the game, here’s a rundown of the top ten best players of all time.
10. Roger Federer
As admirable as the court is, Roger Federer is one of the most successful tennis players of his generation, if not forever. With an incredible 17 Grand Slam wins in the silverware case he is definitely there. In the meantime, he has reached more than 30 big quarterfinals in a row at Trott which says so much about this man. His incredible brilliance ensures that he has just touched the court in decorating his shot-making skills.
9. Rafael Nadal
Eight French Open titles and a total of 13 big slams under his belt, could be retirement time. However, this is not the case with Spanish starlet Rafael Nadal. Born in Mallorca, he is undoubtedly one of the best clay-court players in history. His skill around the brazen baseline is unparalleled and it will not give up its perfection perfectly It is an incredible philosophy. His desire, not to mention his speed, is to confirm that he is the champion of a variety of surfaces. He has been sidelined in recent years due to a running knee injury, but that doesn’t stop him from his incredible trophy.
8. Billy Jean King
One of the most competitive players of the last century, Billy Jean King has won more than 700 singles as well as more than 20 doubles titles. It combines a wealth of Wimbledon titles as its own and as a pair. Her influence is so great that she became the first woman to achieve a sports venue by her name. Also, she has taken social change to new heights and is the founding father of the WTA, the Women’s Tennis Association.
7. Martina Navratilova
Martina Navratilova does not have enough supervisors to describe the efficiency of the court. The Czech star, who is in the top spot for 332 weeks of running, is a famous player and deserves his place in the top ten. The nine-time Wimbledon champion, two-time French Open winner, and three-time Australian Open winner have firmly placed him in the history books.
6. Pete Sampras
American Pete Sampras is the most prominent player after winning 14 Grand Slams. For more than 285 weeks as the world number one, he has won seven Wimbledon titles thanks to his wicket. A native of California, Sampras is certainly one of the best serving of our time and renowned for the volleyball and the forehand of his incredible passes. Even though he never won the French Open at Roland Garros.
5. Rod Lover
Known as the “Rocket”, Australian figurehead Rod Lover is still quite revered in the game. He won a full calendar Grand Slam in the 1960s and also won Wimbledon in 1968. His 117 Grand Slam titles still put him at the top of tennis singles with an incredible 200 career titles.
4. John Jorn
His character and personality are one thing, but Bjornberg’s ability to collect more than 10 Grand Slams at the age of just 25 is special. Sweden was as cold as ice and was familiar to both Jimmy Connors and John McEnroe for his rivals. The square trophy picks came from two big slams, the French Open and Wimbledon. He only appeared once at the Australian Open which shows how many titles he can actually win.
3. Andre Agassi
His flowing rhythms were a part of his career but Andre Agassi is another highly respected player who had a great career. On behalf of Las Vegas, he became the global ambassador for the sport. Agassi deserves praise with eight Grand Slams as he saw his return forehand as his signature shot. After personal problems in 1997, Agassi returned to the court just two years later and took part in the 1999 French Open. Other medals include a gold medal at the 1999 Olympics in Barcelona, which he won in 1999.
2. Novak Djokovic
Born in Serbia, Novak Djokovic is best known for his flamboyant strength and incredible stamina. Facing stiff competition from Nadal and Federer, it is tough for a six-foot-plus star but it has not stopped him from topping the world rankings for two years in a row. With 10 singles titles in the last 12 months alone, Djokovic alone won three Grand Slams back in 2011. He is best known for his impressive two-handed backhand that has made him look almost unbeatable on all pages. He has won seven Grand Slams and more than 40 career titles to date.
1. John McEnroe
The fact that John McEnroe and his legendary position on the court are actually “serious” we must say. King of Catchfraces, a brief glimpse of his seven Open Era titles and nine in doubles means he shouldn’t be underestimated. All of these American lefties still have a big personality in the commentary box and were made for the Super Quick Court at Wimbledon. He won all his Grand Slams between 1979 and 1984 and is best known for his fiery competition with Evan Lendel, Jimmy Connors, and most notably Jorgen Berg.
