Andre is the only man...

to win all four Slams on diferent surfaces:

4 Australian Opens, Rebound Ace.
1 French Open, Clay.
1 Wimbledon, Grass.
2 U.S Opens, Hard Court.(Deco)

That is a tremendous effort. Pete and Roger can't say they've done the same.

Re: Andre is the only man...

Agassi wasn't the first to win Slams on 4 different surfaces.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Andre is the only man...

Wilander won the AO on grass and Rebound Ace, RG on clay and US Open on hardcourt, therefore he did it first.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Andre is the only man...

Laver and Budge won three of their four on grass, not RA and Deco.

Agassi never won a Calendar Slam.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Andre is the only man...

I believe it was about winning ALL FOUR Grand Slams on different surfaces. Wilander never won Wimbledon.
