    Deep Impact is as good as any of the sires around the world

    Dear all,

    ...Deep Impact is a great sire. He is as good as any of the sires around the world, Sheikh Fahad said....

    The above is a citiation from an article about the best sire in Japan's throughbred-breeding industry.
    Is the sentence in bold as emphatic as "Deep Impact is one of the best sires in the world"?

    Thank you

    They are equal in emphasis to me.

    They mean different things to me. If he's the 3rd best horse in the world, he is "one of the best", but he is not "as good as any of the sires around the world" - because there are two better.
