    Battle of Tennis Players - anyone Interested ?

    We have had some great battles @ CW - How about another battle, a Battle of Tennis Players @ CW ??

    IMO it will be a great battle and as there have been many great players in this immensely popular sport. Ideas, Interests ??

    If there is enough Interest, then we can start with the nominations in this thread and then have a new thread for the 'Battle' itself.

    @Jono (Duffer - Good Idea, Change your nick) - I would like to include the Women as well, but again I will leave it to the members. If the majority feel otherwise, I think we can go ahead with the Men's only.

    Can we set some criteria as well ? For example :-

    1. Has At least one Grand Slam Title.
    2. Has been a no. 1 at some point in his career (Jono - Just to Keep Nadal out)

    No seriously, I like the following Criteria :-

    Has at least one Grand Slam Title or Has been a No. 1 at some point in his career.
