Fred Perry, Don Budge, Roy Emerson have done that as well but Andre Agassi(1992-1999) and Roger Federer(2008-2010) have not done it in 2 calender years!
Don Dudge and Rod Laver has done it in 1 calendar year.

What do you think? Is it worth mentioning in your stats, born?

Yes Foxy, I did, thank you
but as I said before I have updated all the stats only in my spreadsheet and will present them here after WTF

Rafa should have skipped Bangkok in the first place but I believe he trained so hard last week because he cares so much about WFT title

Great job born_on_clay!

I just read this on Wikipedia:

Quote:
The (Wimbledon) win also gave Nadal his first "Old World Triple"; the last person to achieve this was Björn Borg in 1978 ("Old World Triple" is a term given to winning the Italian Open, French Open, and Wimbledon in the same year).
Should it be added to the Hall of Fame? If the "Clay Slam" is on there, then why not this.

Re: ~*~*~* Rafael Nadal's Hall Of Fame *~*~*~

thank you so much born-on-clay and Nadal_power for the beautiful update

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.

Re: ~*~*~* Rafael Nadal's Hall Of Fame *~*~*~

He is on 470 ATP wins in career and with 4 clay tournaments,few matches in Paris and some wins in 4 hard tournaments in 2011 think he can easily get 500th win before 25th birthday

I was about to write the same. He shoud beat Berdych tomorrow and he'll ene 2010 with minimum 471 wins. Then, 4 wins in Doha, at least 5 in Australia, 10 in Indian Wells in Miami...so before the clay season he'll have about 490 wins AT LEAST. He will win more matches of course.

Re: ~*~*~* Rafael Nadal's Hall Of Fame *~*~*~

If Rafa does win his 500th match prior to his next birthday, where does this rank in regards to the age of other players who have reached the milestone?

Re: ~*~*~* Rafael Nadal's Hall Of Fame *~*~*~

He should be 1st. I don't know. May be only Borg will be ahead of him. I am not sure.

Borg done it without question and I'm not sure about Lendl and few others from that generation

Since start of ATP Tour in 1990. I really don't think that Sampras or Andre done it,Federer wasn't
