    Evert´s ground game was just as precise and deadly as William Tell shooting an arrow

    Wilander's 3 slams in a season is 2 less than Federer's 3 in three!

    Even Rogi didn't do three in three...he slacked off in '05 with only two thanks to an ill-advised tweener vs Safin

    Nole for a career slam at FO. Rogi's "ship has sailed" as the experts here say, and who am i to contradict. May the best man win.

    No-no for Nole, Andy Murray--if not Rodge--must sneak an RG before his slam winning days are over!

    (breaking from the ranks here, i know.)

    Rafaelius Nadalius disagrees with your stated belief.

    Ralston-Purina makes adequate pet food; Ralston-McKinley is what doubles slam championships were made of.

    Federer owned 17 slams against 11 owned by Laver.

    Frankenstein created a monster, much in the way history will prove one of the elites of early 21st century tennis was created through the aid of a mad doctor.

    You're gonna luv watching god (Federer) versus demi-god Dimitrov play!

    Although, I think master Rodge will show Dimi a stroke or two of magic, enough to send the pupil packing.;)

    Younger teams maybe disadvantaged at doubles
    Moor-Teltscher, for instance lost a Rg final to the excelent team of Gunthardt and Taroczy
