The Defending GS Champion on 3 surfaces.

I've been going over various GS statistics and realized something interesting. With the AO win Nadal is the current defending champion of the FO, Wimbledon, and AO.

The only other player in the Open Era who could lay claim to this is Rod Laver, and that was a time when AO, W, and USO were on grasscourts.

If that's so isn't that amazing?

Re: The Defending GS Champion on 3 surfaces.

yes it is, and by the way, welcome to the board

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.
