Can titles be used as a constant value to compare players from different generations or are they only as valuable as the competition? For example, consider Tennis: Are the Top Three really that good or are they simply up against a weaker generation? Modern sportsies aren't exactly reknown for their toughness *COUGH (soccer players)* Also, what about Murray and Sharapova? Are they really that good but unlucky to be living in this era? Are they actually quite poor but aided by a weak generation + gods, thus allowing them some victory in the absence of their rivals which in turn makes them seem comparable to said rivals? Or perhaps is it dependant upon the nature of each sport (such as number of players, value of equipment and/or influence of natural conditions)?
