    Roger Federer has NOT won 3 slams in a row, but he won 3 in 2004. (AUS, Wimbledon, USO). He won 2 in a row, the Wimbledon/US Open Double.

    BERDI14,

    Did you see this tread already. Am I visisble already at forum ? But why is there red circle in the left side of my threads ?

    It is interesting that you posted the thread " Was Vilas No 1" after I posted this my thread, and it has an answer to your question. But I was off the board, my posts were closed and nobody saw me here including you. Otherwise I think you wouldn't post your thread ?

    I'm afraid Roger didn't win three slams in a row (yet!), although he was pretty close.

    Edit: oops simultaneous post

    Darius Raiden, you are right. I made a mistake in that point.

    No idea what the red circle means Aykhan. And I couldn't read your posts either. They all appeared now. When I posted the thread about Vilas I could see there was an answer but when I opened it there was no message. Maybe you should ask the moderator.

    No, Berdi14. I was off the board by some participants who don't like me either who didn't understand me in the right way, but this is the subject of another thread.

    A much better answer to your last question is 1968. There might be an even better answer than mine, but it is certainly a better answer than yours.

    When nobody replies to a thread it goes down and lost. But there is nothing to reply in this thread. I don't boost myself, I really want those who are not familiar with the facts described here to get knowledge about.
