simple question. Mustard can probably tell me
It's called google
^ yeah I'm sure google would come up with that just so I can have an answer...not the brightest bulb...
Google will link to some page that will have it
It didn't occur in the same calendar year, but the last time there were 4 new winners in a row at a slam are as follows:
2001 Wimbledon - Ivanisevic
2001 US Open - Hewitt
2002 Aussie - Johansson
2002 French - Costa
For the women, it is very recently:
2011 French - Li
2011 Wimbledon - Kvitova
2011 US Open - Stosur
2012 Aussie - Azarenka
Aussie Open - Agassi
French Open - Ferrero
Wimbledon - Federer
US Open - Roddick
My bad, I meant at the same slam for example 09' - 12' uso all slam winners won their first USO.
French Open...all their first slams too and their last except for Nadal.
There was an even longer streak in the 90s:
Before Kuerten regained the title in 2000.
The most recent at Wimbledon:
Surprisingly, four new winners in a row has not happened at the Australian in the Open Era.
'76 - Edmondson
'77(Jan) - Tanner
'77(Dec) - Gerulaitis
'78 - Vilas
I stand corrected.
1985: Wilander,Becker,Lendl and Edberg.One of the finest years ever.
2001 was a great year...they actually showed these matches on Canadian TV. I willl never forget the Ivanisevic wins over Henman and finally Rafter. Classic matches of their time. Such drama...
