There was one tennis insider and Wimbledon champion who had a unique perspective on all of the all-time greats in men’s tennis mentioned above in that …he saw them all play!
Such questions are constantly put to every player whose repute and venerable status give credence to one’s observations, and even present-day tournament players and chroniclers of the game have an abiding interest in the player-comparison opinions of those they consider eminently qualified. In fact, at an International Tennis Hall of Fame dinner at Newport a few years ago, Bud Collins, the globe-trotting tennis sophisticate, who was aware that I’d qualified for my first Wimbledon at the unlikely age of 15 in 1927, surprised me with the Tilden-contra-the-world question. With each season’s cumulatively diminished quality of competition, the paths to Grand Slam glories were measurably eased for the succeeding year’s hopeful. Three all-important extenuations bear on the records of our brightest of stars and we must comment on their merits in order that the reader may interpret their relative importance, vis-a-vis the overall picture of the half century under review. The second consideration was the advent of World War II, which resulted in a six-year championship hiatus from 1940 to 1946 at Wimbledon, Paris and Australia; and, with most of the players in the service, there was a low-level entry at Forest Hills. The final consideration has to be the development of pro tour tennis, which lured the leading performers to its ranks and prevented their participation in the four major events and Davis Cup. When Rod Laver went pro in 1963, he was fresh off winning his first Grand Slam, in which he dominated and beat everyone in the amateur kingdom.
Also until 1968, Davis Cup regulations prohibited professionals from competing for their countries and over the previous ten years, during which there was high-purse pro tennis decimating the upper reaches of the amateur lists, the world’s best were not participating. It is these years of experience and fraternal relationships that permit me to confidently assess the pecking order and relative aptitudes of my tennis brethren in our star-studded galaxy from nearly the dawn of competitive tennis, my aim being not to determine who belongs in any year’s top 10, but how the best would stack up against the best, in any year, past or present. I’m positively no misogynist, so why would I not have included all those richly deserving ladies in this discussion? You might notice that there are some major omissions from this list of top 15 players of all time. In addition to admiring Nadal’s ferocious physical game, my father admired Nadal’s great sportsmanship.
We’ve compiled a list of the tallest professional basketball players of all time, and it gets pretty crazy. Suleiman Ali Nashnush (1943 – February 25, 1991) is one of seventeen individuals in medical history to reach or surpass eight feet in height. Alexander Alekseyevich Sizonenko (27 July 1959 – 5 January 2012) was a Soviet basketball player. Sizonenko played professionally for Spartak Leningrad (1976–1978) and for Stroitel Kuybyshev (1979–1986). Ri Myung-Hun, also known as Michael Ri after his favorite basketball player Michael Jordan (born September 14, 1967 in North Korea), is a former North Korean basketball player.
Yasutaka Okayama (born November 29, 1954 in Kumamoto Prefecture, Japan) was the tallest basketball player drafted in National Basketball Association history.
Okayama practiced Judo at junior high school and high school, and obtained a second degree black belt. Fingleton won a basketball scholarship to the United States first playing at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and later at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts. Fingleton debuted professionally in the 2004–2005 season with the Boston Frenzy of the ABA.
In the 2005 NBA Development League Draft, the Austin Toros selected Fingleton as the eighth pick in the fifth round. In November 2006, Fingleton signed with Spanish team CB Illescas and later with Ciudad Real.
Gheorghe Dumitru Mure?an (born February 14, 1971), also known as Ghita, Big Ghita or George, is a retired Romanian professional basketball player. Mure?an was born in the countryside of Romania, in Tritenii de Jos, Cluj County, and played competitive basketball at Cluj University.
He played in the NBA from 1993 to 2000 showing signs of a promising career that was derailed by injuries. Manute Bol (October 16, 1962 – June 19, 2010) was a Sudanese-born basketball player and political activist. He was officially measured and listed at 7 feet, 6 ? inches tall in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Shawn Paul Bradley (born March 22, 1972) is a retired American and German (dual citizen) basketball player who played center for the Philadelphia 76ers, the New Jersey Nets and the Dallas Mavericks in the National Basketball Association.
At 7-foot-6, 290 pounds, Mamadou Ndiaye is currently the tallest college basketball player in America. He was the 2013 CIF-5AA Player of the Year for Brethren Christian in Huntington Beach, California, earned the 2013 John R. He averaged 27 points, 14 rebounds and 4.5 blocked shots per game for Brethren Christian and Coach Jon Bahnsen as a senior, and in his freshman year at UC Irvine, broke the Big West single game blocked shot records with 11 vs Long Beach. He was the Maltese national team top scorer of the European small countries championship in the summer of 2012 in Malta, where they finished in third place. In 2011-12 he played on loan at CUS Bari Basketball in National Division A, the following season he played for the Basketball Reggiana in Serie A, playing a single game.
Yao Ming (born September 12, 1980) is a retired Chinese professional basketball player who played for the Houston Rockets of the National Basketball Association (NBA). Yao, who was born in Shanghai, China, started playing for the Shanghai Sharks as a teenager, and played on their senior team for five years in the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA), winning a championship in his final year.
Yao was selected to start for the Western Conference in the NBA All-Star Game eight times, and was named to the All-NBA Team five times.
In July 2011, Yao announced his retirement from professional basketball due to a series of foot and ankle injuries which forced him to miss 250 games in his last six seasons.
In eight seasons with the Rockets, Yao ranks sixth among franchise leaders in total points and total rebounds, and second in total blocks. Pavel Nikolaevitch Podkolzin (born January 15, 1985) is a Russian professional basketball player for Sibirtelecom Lokomotiv Novosibirsk. Podkolzin made his debut with Lokomotiv Novosibirsk, in the Russian second division, during the 2001–02 season. He was originally available for selection in the previous year’s draft, but withdrew due to acromegaly, a pituitary disorder. Vranes was selected by the National Basketball Association’s New York Knicks in the second round of the 2003 NBA Draft. Malgorzata Dydek (28 April 1974 – 27 May 2011), known as Margo Dydek in the United States, was a Polish international professional basketball player.

He told me the sport of tennis was in need of a book by someone who had seen all the great matches and played “everyone” and that I was also the only guy still around who could first-hand compare and record what every tennis buff would hope to know. Just tote up the number of stadium-filling superstars lost to the major amateur events through the schism: Tilden in 1931, Cochet in 1933, Vines in 1934, Perry in 1937, Budge in 1939, Riggs in 1941, Kramer in 1948 (following the five-year World War II gap) and, during the next two decades, Gonzales, Sedgman, Hoad, Rosewall, Trabert and Laver all bid adieu to the trophy-only circuit.
In virtually every sport, leading athletes lost out on the opportunity to enhance their records during their prime competitive years. Until 1968, these men were precluded from defending their Wimbledon, Forest Hills and other crowns by the simon-pure rules in effect. But, here again, there was quite a way to go before he would become a case-hardened touring pro.


This is sad for such a long-recognized important goodwill-builder among nations to be only a minor factor in the considerations of the player’s individual world ranking. At the age of 14, and almost 90 pounds, I won the Arizona men’s singles, which earned me entry to that year’s U.S. I have been present, or have viewed on TV, virtually all important women’s matches going back to the Helen Wills (Moody) era, and I do indeed have opinions as to which stars of the gentler gender belong on which rungs of the all-time ladder of tennis greatness. What lies behind the printed scores is what determines the placement of each of the world’s great players.
Bill Tilden: Most sports fans know Bobby Riggs (thanks in part to Billie Jean King, who beat him in the famed 1973 “Battle of the Sexes” match), Rene Lacoste and Fred Perry (their shirt labels!), but poor Henri Cochet, Jean Borotra, Pancho Segura—even Budge, Kramer and Gonzales!—are becoming shadowier with time and better remembered by historically disposed fans. Rod Laver: He won the first of his double Grand Slams as an amateur in 1962, but in his 1969 win he had every active pro in the game to vanquish.
Pete Sampras: You know all about those weeks without end as numero uno, his multiple Slam record, especially his virtual ownership of Wimbledon’s Centre Court. Fred Perry: Where do you put a player who practically waltzed through three straight Wimbledons and two of our national singles, plus an Australian and French for sweeteners?
Bjorn Borg: Bjorn practically toyed with everybody through an astounding six French Open wins, but none of us sage old timers gave him a chance to make it past the second round on Wimbledon’s fast grass.
Boris Becker: I’ve had a personal interest in Boris and his career ever since 1985 when he cleaned Kevin Curren’s clock to take the first of his three Wimbledon titles while erasing my 54-year span of being its youngest winner. Roy Emerson: When Roy wound up on his serve, he looked as if he were bowing to Wimbledon’s Royal Box, which could be habit-formed from having accepted the winner’s trophy there successively in 1964 and 1965. Stefan Edberg: Stefan is almost a throwback to bygone years when the big events were on grass and 80 percent of the game’s best were serve-and-volleyers. Rene Lacoste: Inventor of the first ball-throwing machine, the metal racquet and, of course, the chemise Lacoste, Rene had a tennis game that was every bit as mechanical as his creative brain. Of course missing are the greatest players of the current era, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, as well as Andre Agassi, a winner of eight majors, including a career Grand Slam. When he first burst on the scene, my father detested his long hair and look – preferring the clean cut style of his own era. Sizonenko was also a member of the Soviet national team and appeared on its behalf for 12 games. It has been argued that he is the tallest player to ever play professional basketball, although Guinness World Records indicates Libyan Suleiman Ali Nashnush was taller. He played the center position for the national basketball team of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. In August 2000, Fingleton had back surgery and then earned a medical redshirt from North Carolina. On 6 December 2005, Fingleton started playing with the English Basketball League team Tees Valley Mohawks. After an injury forced him to retire in 2007, he returned to his home city of Durham to pursue a career in showbusiness. The Big South’s defensive player of the year, he led them to a school-record 23 wins.
He played professionally in the French league with Pau-Orthez during the 1992–93 season and was an instant hit with fans. At 7 ft 7 in (2.31 m) tall, he was one of the tallest men ever to play in the National Basketball Association, along with Gheorghe Muresan.
He is believed to have been born on October 16, 1962 in either Turalei or Gogrial, Sudan (now South Sudan). The NCAA doesn’t track its towering giants, but many believe only 7-foot-7 Kenny George, who played at UNC Asheville from 2006-08, stood taller than Ndiaye. Wooden High School Player of the Year award for CIF Division V and was a member of the all-state first team, he is more than just a big body.
At the time of his final season, he was the tallest active player in the NBA, at 2.29 m (7 ft 6 in).
After negotiating with the CBA and the Sharks to secure his release, Yao was selected by the Houston Rockets as the first overall pick in the 2002 NBA draft.
He reached the NBA Playoffs four times, and the Rockets won a first-round series in the 2009 postseason, their first playoff series victory since 1997. At 7 ft 5 in (2.26 m), he played the center position throughout his nine-year career (1983, 1985–1990, 1992, 1993) in the NBA, and remains one of the tallest players ever in NBA history.
In December 2001, he signed with Italy’s Metis Varese, for whom he played from 2002 to 2004. Podkolzin was considered to be a high draft pick in he 2004 draft because of his size, blocking ability and strength, but he was chosen late in the draft. On August 5, 2006, he was waived by the Mavericks after appearing briefly in just six games spanning two seasons. Standing 7 ft 2 in (2.18 m) tall, she was famous for being the tallest professional female basketball player in the world.

Computers now spit out weekly rankings of over 1,000 players on a weekly basis, but back when punch cards were its high-tech breadwinners, national amateur rankings were determined by committees appointed by each country’s tennis association (no more than fifty players were ever rated in the United States) and rankings of the world’s top 10 were decided by a succession of self-appointed London sports columnists whose judgments sometimes appeared based as much on favoritism as fact.
In tennis, this especially affected players such as Don Budge, Bobby Riggs and Jack Kramer. Though there were to be no more head-to-head professional barnstorming matches, Rod met Gonzales in meaningful tournament matches over a two-year span but could win only a few. However, it would not only be more appropriate, but a better qualified assessment if such an analysis were undertaken by one of their own leading ladies who has shared the competitive scene.
For instance, for many years certain tournaments have traditionally counted more than others.
In 1938, Don was the first winner of the Grand Slam and for six decades he has been recognized by his peers as the one player to have commanded not only every shot in the book for every surface, but also to have been blessed with the single most destructive tennis weapon ever—a bludgeon backhand struck with a sixteen ounce “Paul Bunyan” bat. His only significant tournament disappointment was his failure to win a WCT title, losing two finals to an inspired Ken Rosewall (their second match in 1972 was one of the greatest I’ve ever seen). His understandably respectful peers were resigned to playing second fiddle to Pete, but they looked forward to ambushing him on slow clay. This, of course, is Fred Perry who did his winning when all the big guns except Vines were around to test him. Yet overnight, our high-roller, backcourt habitue became a demon volleyer and for five consecutive years, he made mincemeat out of such grass-court winners as Ilie Nastase, Jimmy Connors and John McEnroe. He’d gladly have refunded Wimbledon’s first prize guineas several times over for just one win, but his best chance was in 1987, when he lost to the lower-ranked Pat Cash.
He failed to win only in France where he was unable to capitalize on his flat-hitting power. He lost just 13 games in two final-round, straight-set wins in major finals over Connors (Wimbledon) and Lendl (US Open).
Edberg’s was not a big serve, but his sure-handed, superbly-reflexed and fearless net play won him two titles at Wimbledon, the US Open and the Australian Open, plus a runner-up showing at the French in 1989.
As the leader of the Four Musketeers of the courts (with Henri Cochet, Jean Borotra and Jacques Brugnon), Rene combined his Maginot Line defense game with pinpoint angled, counter-attacking ripostes. My father was fortunate to have the opportunity late in his life to watch these three compete, but was not able to put his thoughts down on paper as part of this compilation. Sizonenko was said to have grown since this measurement was taken, although age reduced his standing height considerably.


He attended the University of Portland but never played for their basketball program as he was a project. Sturgess was the tallest ever college basketball player in the United States and is the tallest professional basketball player in the world. But he had two major knee injuries, among other problems, and missed nearly three full seasons.
The NBA took interest in him and he was selected by the Washington Bullets in the 1993 NBA Draft. A center, he was known as a specialist player; he was considered among the best shot-blockers in the history of the sport, but other aspects of his game were considered fairly weak.
During his career, Nevitt played with the Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers, Detroit Pistons, Chicago Bulls, Fulgor Libertas Forli (Italy), and San Antonio Spurs. He was selected by the Utah Jazz in the 2004 NBA Draft and promptly traded to the Dallas Mavericks for a future first-round pick in the 2005 NBA Draft. She played center position for the Connecticut Sun in the WNBA and was a coach for the Northside Wizards in the Queensland Basketball League.
When you want to know the id of item, which you cannot find in this list - you can always contact us in the contant form. And how about Rod Laver, Don Budge, Fred Perry, Jack Kramer, Pancho Gonzales, Rene Lacoste, Henri Cochet, Jean Borotra, Ellsworth Vines, Bobby Riggs, Lew Hoad, Tony Trabert, Frank Sedgman, Ken Rosewall, Arthur Ashe, Jimmy Connors, Bjorn Borg, John McEnroe, Boris Becker, Ivan Lendl or Stefan Edberg?
Add to this the fact that from 1930, when “Big Bill” Tilden departed the amateur ranks, until 1968, when Jack Kramer led the pro contingent into the “Promised Land of Open Tennis,” the pros were barred from all major tournaments and excluded from the world rankings.
Pre-1968 winners such as Wood (ouch, that’s me!), Ted Schroeder, Yvon Petra, Vic Seixas, Jaroslav Drobny, Bob Falkenburg, Budge Patty, Dick Savitt, Ashley Cooper, Alex Olmedo, Neale Fraser, Chuck McKinley, Roy Emerson and Manolo Santana all would have been hard pressed to squeeze out even an occasional win against their abdicated amateur opponents. Before that time, the boat trip to Europe was a five-day affair plus the absolutely essential need of a week to find your land legs. How would he have fared after more seasoning and the years had cooled some of Pancho’s fire, we’ll never know. The following spring, I was shipped to Paris for the French Championships and shockingly won two rounds to become the youngest ever male qualifier for Wimbledon.
After 1946, when the top-amateur turns-pro system resumed, the purely pro events such as the U.S.
He had many one-sided win records against such Grand Slam event champions-turned-pro as Frank Sedgman, Tony Trabert and Ken Rosewall. After he turned pro, Fred played a 61-match neck-and-neck tour with Vines, 1936-37 (Vines won, 32-29), but he began to sag a bit thereafter (Vines beat him head-to-head 49-35 in 1937-38). Borg stood an impossible four to five feet behind the baseline to take first serves, but was so fast out of the blocks that few wide slices got past him.
I was among those who urged Jimmy to stop feeling he had to bury every ball from the baseline, but it wasn’t until his waning years in the big time that the light finally dawned. He can give you a heavy whack with both his first or second, or slice it with wicked deception. How many more would be crowding his trophy room if he could have waltzed in behind such trenchant deliveries as McEnroe’s, Becker’s, Ivanisevic’s, Sampras’s and Krajicek’s? However, he was a big fan of all three players and would no doubt have place them in at least the top 10 of this list. Through the years, however, he began to appreciate him more and admired his strength, speed and the way he played and took great joy in watching him in action.
Unable to adjust, he returned to Montenegro (then Serbia and Montenegro) in January 2002, where he played for Buducnost Podgorica until the summer of 2003.
Each year you could safely predict that half the top seeds who would debark from the boat from Wimbledon to the United States to compete, usually the next day, in the Meadow Club tournament, and would be out of the singles after the first or second round, would be left to quench their frustrations on the sunny Atlantic sands of Southampton. There, I played defending champion Rene Lacoste on the hallowed Centre Court on opening day. Unlike Borg, no matter how many hours he ultimately spent striving to become a volleyer, habit was too strong. At the French, he had Lendl nailed but admitted he blew it and lost after leading two-sets-to-love.
If Agassi’s final body of work (established after my father’s writing) is considered, he too would rank well against the players mentioned in this list, especially with his eight majors that included at least one each of the Big Four.
He is second all-time in NBA history in terms of average blocked shots per game, and ranks 15th on the career blocks list. This High School Team Held The Ball For The Entirety of OT, Then Won at BuzzerThis Vince Carter Toronto Raptors Mixtape Will Break the Internet. Also prior to 1968, virtually every newly-anointed amateur champion would be lured to the pay-for-play game, thereby stripping the amateur ranks of its marquee drawing cards and permitting as yet unproven contestants to be crowned No. All in all, it took about eight weeks to make the scene at both Paris and Wimbledon, while from Australia, this period was more than doubled. In 1931, I became the youngest-ever Wimbledon men’s singles champion at the age of 19 (Boris Becker broke my record in 1985 when he won the title at the age of 17). Finally, judgments have to be made of the relative value that should be attached to such factors as longevity, consistency, two-man tour results and the ability to win on the slow as well as the fast surfaces.
He changed the game’s image from a side-court chair, standing-room sport to a stadium- packed, crowd-pleaser (it was Bill who paid the freight on America’s first tennis stadium at Forest Hills). On crucial points, he couldn’t bring himself to leave the baseline and rush to the net, where Bjorn never feared to tread. If the TV could have been programmed to cut out all but John’s shots in play, you would have been admiring perhaps the most naturally gifted shot-maker ever to play tennis. Of course winning more major singles titles than any other man would place him near the top of this list.
Often the trip was economically or otherwise unfeasible for the reasonably-pure amateur of those days.
From that time on, through to the late 1970s (doubles only towards the end!), I was privileged to compete against virtually every top player in the world. Wrote Kramer in the book, published in 1979, “Don is still the best player I ever saw, and (Ellsworth) Vines is next.
The press named his pile-driver first serve “The Cannonball” and, allowing for the transformation of tennis racquets, no one other than Frank Shields and Ellsworth Vines ever owned one better.
Nonetheless, with three US Open titles, three French Open titles and two Australian Open titles and an astonishing 11 runner-up showings at majors (totaling 19 Grand Slam tournament finals), how can he not rate an upper berth-spot. At the start of the organized pro game, I invented and patented the cushioned, transportable Supreme Court, which is still used for indoor events, and I was not displeased to be reminded by an old AT P buddy that there was no way the pro indoor circuit could have gone full bore had I not dreamt up the concept. Bill’s enduring record on every surface—an absolute master of every shot in the book—make him a shoo-in for third on my list.
Were there more witnesses around who’d seen Tilden play everyone in sight until the age of 48, I might well be sued for leaving him off the top. And I say, yes, I know that, and will you please name me a better hitter than Ted Williams and a better singer than Caruso?… I feel fairly confident in saying that Budge was the best of all. He owned the most perfect set of mechanics and he was the most consistent…Day in and day out, Budge played at the highest level.
