PS: When you're at the Garden in front of 17,000 people there's a certain amount of ego and competitiveness that comes out. You don't want to embarrass yourself or the game. It was a good night. I think what happened was blown out of proportion. It was one moment out of 15 years.
Roger Federer in his prime against you in your prime. Who wins?
PS: It's a little different game. I think technology has helped the game. The racket I used was sort of a wood racket compared to what they use today.
So there's no way you're going to admit you couldn't take Federer?
PS: Let me put it this way. [Bjorn] Borg in his prime. Myself. [Rod] Laver. We all felt unbeatable in our primes. As do Rafa [Nadal] and Roger. It really is hard to answer.
Who would you have a better chance against—Federer or Nadal?
PS: Depends on the surface.
Let's say Wimbledon.
PS: I would say Nadal. Not that I couldn't beat Roger. But I loved playing guys on grass who stayed back.
What makes Federer unique?
