Easy Pick here,  Best player from Era 1.

Only played in 23 grandslams and won 10 of them which is amazing. Cant find the stats on this but i would be amazed if anyone has more than a 43% grandslam winning percentage.

Won the US 7 times including 6 years straight.  Has 3 Wimbledon wins despite only playing there 6 times. Absolute Grass court specialist. Never played in the Aussie Open and you would assume he would have won if he played there.

If he had of played them all probably would have the most grandslams wins of anyone in history.

Not only that but has an amazing 93.6% wins in his career.

Quite simply if he turns up the title is basically his.

Question Torp.

If we select player x who has won say 5 Titles 1950 and earlier and a further 4 Titles after 1950 do we have the option to select the era.  Similarly for Era 2 and Era 3 with players winning Titles in the 70's and 80"s.

And Spinking Budge was my selected 1st player from Era 1 nice pick.

It's when he won his 1st Grand Slam OR when he turned professional....OR when he first debuted.

Thanks Torp for the clarification and looks like Jukesy picked up one I was thinking of with the Brat winning his first Grand Slam in 1979 and his others in the 80's.
Thanks also for taking my next pick in Era 1 with Fred Perry.

I will take Roy Emerson. He held the most Grand Slams until Sampras and Federer came along. I now have the 2 1960s giants, Laver & Emerson.
