Who was the best tennis player ever?

For males, the answer to this question depends upon a number of factors: If singles alone is to be considered, the most number of Grand Slam titles has been won by Roger Federer. However, Rod Laver is the only man in history to have won the true Calendar Grand Slam twice; further, the prime titles that he won when playing professional tennis have not been accounted for as part of the slam tally. Thus he also lost about six years of his best tennis to the ranks of professional tennis in a day when amateur and professional competitions were separated. On the other hand, if singles and doubles slam titles are treated equally, Roy Emerson has won the most titles of any man in history at 28 in total: he has also won the most doubles Grand Slam titles. Many in fact, consider him to be the greatest doubles player that ever lived. He also held the record for some time of the most singles titles held by a male player. For females, Margaret Court, at a total of 62 titles, undisputably leads the way as the greatest female player in history. She also became the first women's tennis player during the Open tennis era to win the Calendar Grand Slam in singles. She also won the Calendar Grand Slam in Mixed Doubles as well. At 24 singles grand slam singles titles and 38 doubles titles, she stands to claim the crown as both - the greatest ladies' singles player in history and the greatest doubles player. She is the only person to have won all 12 Grand Slam events at least twice - that is, all four major singles titles, all four same-sex doubles titles and all four mixed doubles titles. The International Tennis Hall of Fame states, "There has never been a tennis player to match (her)."

How many grandslams did Rod Laver win?

Laver won 2 true Full Grand Slams - that is, he won all four Major titles - Wimbledon, the French, US and Australian - in the same calendar year twice: in 1962 and in 1969. He is the only player in history to do so.He is also the only player in history to win the full grand slam in singles titles and also win a grand slam doubles title in that same calendar year, being in 1969: partnered by the great Roy Emerson, the two won the Australian Open.In total, Laver won 11 grand slam singles events and 6 grand slam doubles titles, making him probably the most "complete" player in history to date.During the earlier 1960's, while major tennis players were divided into 'professional' circuits as opposed to 'amateur' circuits, Laver was also the only person ever to win the 'grand slam' of professional tennis, in 1967: so one could effectively say that technically, he won 3 Grand Slams in major tennis worldwide!!!Such feats, of course, are never likely to ever be repeated.

Who is the greatest male lawn tennis player ever in history?

Answer1Bill Tilden.He dominated the sport from 1912 until about 1930, winning 138 of 192 tournaments in that period, and compiling a match record of 907-62.He wrote about the sport for newspapers, and authored the classic tennis book "Match Play and the Spin of the Ball."His arrests on morals charges seriously tarnished his image.Answer 2Rod Laver is probably the greatest lawn tennis player of all.Certainly, most polls have chosen him as the greatest ever tennis player, but even as a 'grass player' only, I would choose him as the Best.The reason I say this is that 9 of his 11 Grand slam singles titles were won on grass. Yet a further 4 Professional Slam singles titles were also won on grass, whereas, if one was to compare with Tilden [as suggested above] - Tilden won only 2 on grass.Also, Doubles on grass: Tilden rarely won a doubles slam; Rod Laver won 7 grand slam doubles titles on grass surface.
