Yeah, thanks :)

I only read the title "is R important to win Grand Slam matches?".

Emerson also won the non-calender GS. Didn't know that. Nobody is taking that seriously I gather.

Becker more popular than Edberg ? I doubt it.

In the current generation, who do you pick between Roger Rederer and Nafael Nadal ?

Another amazing thing is that they all had names. Yes, that is truly amazing if you think about it!

Good point! I guess he probably only gets called Andrew when he's been a very naughty boy.

The two perhaps most commonly disputed GOAT candidates have something even more unusual in common: ROdney LavER/ROger FederER.
