    The lowest ranked person to reach the Wimbledon Final was Goran Ivanisevic in 2001 (who won it) at no 125.

    The lowest ranked slam finalist is Mark Edmondson at no 212 who won the 1976 Australian Open.

    I'm pretty sure Boris Becker was unseeded in 85 when he won at Wimby. And wasn't Michael Chang unseeded when he won at RG at 17?

    Yup. but unseeded players do have ATP ranks, don't they ?
    Like the qualifiers and wildcards, they could be in the 100's or 200's.

    1993 WO final:
    I cant believe it, Novotna picked up her game against Graf. Took the second set 6-1. Was 4-0 or 4-1 up in the final set, and then proceeded to lose the next 5/6 games in a row and gift the match to Graf :-(

    She was runner up to Hingis in 97 and won the WO in 1998 :)

    I did see snips of the Mauresmo vs Henin 2006 final last night.

    Ivo Karlovic fired 51 aces in the 2005 WO Round 1 against Bracciali, and still lost.

    J Johansson also fired 51 against Agassi in R4 of the AO 2005 and lost.

    Safin served 31 aces without a double fault in the 2004 AO.

    I have some useless but interesting information.
    The asian woman who owned a hair salon downstairs form me was killed a year or two ago by her jealous ex-husband.
    She came to this country with nothing and struggled to eventually make it and open her own hair salon. Now her kids have no one.
    (true story)

    Hey that's an inexcusable excuse for losing to Skraggle and Saram.

    Only TWO matches in the last 2 years, and you claim fatigue !!!

    Safin and Nalbandian (among Nadal and Federer, Djokovic) are among the active players who have reached the semi finals of all four slams.

    Any others ?

    This statement can't be regarded useless, at least for u. Because u or some of ur relatives chose it orange by that reason that they liked it more than other colours.

    If my post isn't useless then just ignore it.

    Fenway Park in Boson in 2008 had more "public lewdness" arrests (involving male-with-male participation) in its Men's Rooms than all 29 other Major League Baseball venues combined.
