    ...that Federer did not play on Rod Laver, Chatrier, Centre Court, or Arthur Ashe?

    I can recall him playing on Suzanne Lenglen in 2006 I think.

    They play him only on the centre courts since they fear his wife will look even more grumpy playing on a secondary court.

    I've got a good question. Do you think if/when Federer drops significantly in the rankings in a few years, say out of the top 20 or 30, they will ever put him on the outside courts?

    I doubt it they would at Wimbledon. Now that in 2011 they'll have four show courts, he'll always been on one of them.

    Yeah I can't see it happening at Wimbledon. BTW, what was Sampras ranked just before he won that US Open in 2002? Because he wasn't always on the center court at slams (excluding Wimbledon).
