I hope you never put your cell phone in with your food and cook it. That would be an interesting new recipe.I haven't this problem with the remote but I used to find my cellphone there, especially after drunkenly texting evil ex girlfriends...
I think we're getting all these threads confused. Understandable since quite often the topics seems to be the same.That's the other thread. This thread is about GOAT defeating slam winners (as in major winners) or former n°1. It all started when Dann Lobb pointed out that Connors defeated a number of Amateur slam champions that I didn't count in the original thread, considering that the Amateur of the 60's were not the best players in the world (but they were at the time of Tilden).
Sticking to just Open era champions and #1s - I'd think the leader would be either Connors or AgassiI wanted to check the number of different slam winners or n°1 (at any point) defeated by all time greats...
Agassi: Sampras, Lendl, Cash, Noah, McEnroe, Wilanders, Connors, Courier, Becker, Edberg, Chang, Stitch, Gomez, Ivanisevic, Moya, Muster, Bruguera, Kuerten, Kafelnikov, Korda, Rios, Rafter, Krajicek, Roddick, Hewitt, Safin, Johansson, Gaudio, Federer. 29 players.
Connors (that I know). Gonzalez, Olmedo, Rosewall, Newcombe, Laver, Nastase, Orantes, Gimeno, Kodes, Borg, McEnroe, Panatta, Ashe, Smith, Tanner, Gerulaitis, Vilas, Kriek, Edmondson, Teacher, Noah, Agassi, Cash, Edberg, Chang, Gomez, Lendl, Bruguera, Stitch. 29 players.
IMO, the peak pro tour was from 1958-66. 58-62 had peak Gonzalez, Segura, Hoad, peak Rosewall. 63-66: Near peak Gonzalez, Peak Rosewall and Laver. 50-54: Old Kramer, Riggs, Budge VS Peak Gonzalez, Segura. Emerson, had he joined the pro tour probably could have won a pro slam or more, assuming his game improved a bit.Then which major tournament with the very best player of his time did Emerson win?
And thanks for Vines. I'm not very clear on thus era and exactly when the pro tour started to be clearly better than the amateur one.
Nice catchNor Michael Chang?
Fabrice is a true legend!Fabrice Santoro has played 37 (Connors, Kriek, Wilander, Noah, Lendl, Becker, Edberg, Chang, Gomez, Sampras, Courier, Stich, Agassi, Bruguera, Muster, Kafeklnkov, Krajicek, Kuerten, Rafter, Korda, Moya, Safin, Ivanisevic, Hewitt, Johansson, Costa, Ferrero, Federer, Roddick, Gaudio, Nadal, Djokovic, del Potro, Murray, Wawrinka, Cilic & Rios) of the possible 55
Some he doesn't have wins against, but his win loss record isn't too bad (didn't play most of them too often)
Chronologically, he's played every Slam champion since Johan Kriek (who won his maiden title in 1981), bar one (Pat Cash) upto the present!!!
