And andy ... yes! look my second post, and thanks again

Chang (maybe). Not sure if he ever made the semis of Wimbledon though. He lost late in the tournament to Sampras once, but that may have been the QF.

im surprised that Becker reached the semis at roland garros. was that the year he lost to Pernfors?

I thought the same, but Chang got only QF (94)

Q&M son 02-21-2012 12:28 PM

Some notes, besides the mention on Borg or Nastase in Aussie Open...
Connors not played RG from 74 to 78, maybe his greatest years on clay.
Kodes also never played Australian Open.
Mc Enroe played only 5 times the Australian Open.

Q&M son 02-21-2012 12:32 PM

Wilander and Vilas didn't got Wimby SF, but they were in QF twice at least (Mats 3 times)

Ashe won AUS OPEN, WIMBY & USO and got QF in RG 1971

Actually he made it three times 1987, 1989 and I think (though I am not certain) 1991.

In 1989 he lost to Edberg. I think he lost to Agassi in 1991. 1987 I am not sure.
