Golden Age of Men’s Tennis Alive at Wimbledon
Breakfast at Wimbledon was a tradition in my house growing up. The Sunday morning men's final was appointment viewing and I was convinced I would never see a better player at the All-England Club than Pete Sampras. His serve and volley skill set was perfect for that time in tennis and that surface.
I will still make sure to be in front of the television Sunday morning for the final on the men's side this year, but the relentless desire to win and success in doing so by the likes of Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal has drastically changed my thinking and this year's Wimbledon has done nothing but reinforce the fact that we are living in the golden age of men's tennis.
Federer is not only the greatest to ever step onto Centre Court at Wimbledon, he's the best to ever set foot on any tennis court. His eight Wimbledon titles are more than anyone else's as are his twenty career Grand Slam championships. Federer, Nadal and Djokovic have all passed Pete Sampras on that all-time wins list.
