    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.

    another fact i find amazing is that players with the same first/last initial are more popular then their counterparts

    AA Anddre Agassi
    BB Boris Becker, Bjorn Borg

    AAgassi more popluar than sampras, courier etc

    BBecker more popular than lendl, edberg, wilander etc

    BBorg more popular than mcenroe, connors etc

    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!

    MuRRay is definitely due for a couple of slams with the double R in his last name!

    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.
