Most successful French Open champions?

Could anyone who has this data post the information on grips and 1hbh vs. 2hbh for the most successful FO champions? Thanks.

Nole fan: "...most Fedtards seem to be very rabid and rude." (I agree 100%)

You can bet Djokovic's mom just screamed "Another king is dead" right about now - in the remotest corner - of her bathroom - followed by "The other one is buried." (from tennisplanet.me, following Madrid 2011 Djokovic d. Nadal 7-5 6-4)

Borg, Lendl, Wilander, Kuerten, Nadal, Bruguera and Courier.

Well Guga and the Lendl are the only ones with 1 handed backhands. Go look at the videos I posted in the point construction thread or the oldies, then it's clear to see.

Successful only at RG or on clay in general?

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

The title is very misleading.

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".

Sorry about that. Yes, I was getting at what kind of grips (eastern, western?) did those people you mentioned use. Thanks.

The last RG Champion not using the western FH grip was Agassi.
