Canas has won on five continents too, counting North and South America as separate continents, which they are in a political but not a geographic sense.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Federer has never played in South America. So this is a pretty useless stat since South America only has MM events.

It's useless because Federer can't come out on top?

You're like the gift that keeps on giving.

I assume you think the elite events are the Slams and the Masters Series? If so you know that there are none in SA. But I don't understand what this has to do with this thread? Unless I am misreading the title and it in fact says "Fernando GONZO ~the only active player to *win elite titles on 5 continents*??"

Re: `Gonzalez & Canas`~only active players to *win titles on 5-Continents*??

Very interest article. But it doesn't means anything. Canas beated Roger Fed twice this year, that would catch people's eye much more than those numbers. i hope to see him beat Roger again and again

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic and Mikael Ymer

Thiem will be No 1 by May 2018
Nick Kyrgios will be No 2 by Sep 2018
Mikael Ymer will be No 3 by Dec 2018
Alexander Zverev will be No 1 by Dec 2018

why be so negative
...
I wasn`t claiming this to be a `useful stat`, it`s irrelevant
***Simply think it`s cool that a player manages to win titles on 5-Continents
