hi alois and jeff,

despite both waldner and persson being on the same category (legends) , about 70% of people consider waldner as a better player. i feel they are almost equal or that persson sometimes plays better... what is your opinon on this and why?

looking forward to your reply!

Hi Shripathi,

Walder's game is more spectacular.  He is a master of the game.  Persson is a great player but just doesn't have that same level of skill with the ball.

I think on numbers Waldner with 2 World singles titles and an Olympic singles Gold medal is better.  Mind you Persson won a World singles title beating Waldner in the final, which automatically puts you in legend status.
