lucky laver, Billy jean king and margret court
 
laver, magret court and billy jean kings are lucky to be from australia and usa

thats why their home grand slam center have arena (laver and court arena) or center (USTA BJK Center) named after them

on the other side, federer, borg will have never have grand slams court named after them, simply for the reason that they are not from one of 4 grand slam countries

maybe wilmbledon will name a court after murray name

It is WAY too early to make that assumption. Who knows what will happen? Maybe the ATP will make the WTF location permanent elsewhere? I mean, the second most successful male ever doesn't have squat named after him.

and why do you think Fed and Borg would actually care that much to have a slam court named after them? Having a court in their home country at the most famous tennis center in their country probably means a lot more to the Swedish and Swiss fans than having a court in some foreign country named after them.

Federer won't be getting a court named after him after his appearance fee of 2.5 million at the next basel tournament.

Fed has a road named after him

I wouldn't hold your breath. They still haven't got round to naming one after Fred Perry who won Wimbledon 3 times on the trot over 70 years ago!

Angela Mortimer (1961 winner), Ann Jones (1969 winner) and Virginia Wade (1977 winner) are all still waiting for their's!

However, they did name a hill after Tim Henman who never even reached a Wimbledon final so maybe there's a chance for Murray at some stage!

I can't stand it when French players gesture to the crowd to get behind them. I actually love the fact Federer, Nadal and Djokovic do not have a home slam but it doesn't matter. Great players win anyway.
