Who’s the greatest tennis player ever?
A tennis infographic taken from our new book, An Answer For Everything, which visualises the data on everything from the best sportsperson of all time to how to become prime minister, how to save the planet and the best thing since sliced bread
Tennis fans can easily spend hours arguing over who’s the greatest of all time. Of the Big Three that have dominated the men’s game for the past decade, which out of Djokovic, Federer and Nadal can claim to be the best? Or do they all lag behind Serena Williams, who’s won more Grand Slams than any other player in history. The game’s GOAT, we discovered while compiling tennis stats for our new book of infographics, An Answer For Everything, is none of the above…
It’s part of a series of infographics in the book in which we took sportspeople featured on impressionistic ‘greatest of all time’ lists compiled by sports writers and publications and compared their career statistics to one another to see which is truly the best of the best. Press deadlines for the book mean that all statistics are as of 31st December 2020.
