Re: One Slam Wonder Club

I'd add Andy Roddick, but at least he still has a chance of winning another.

Re: One Slam Wonder Club

No one is more of a "one slam wonder" than Thomas Johansson.

Re: One Slam Wonder Club

What da f**k is this thread talking about? :retard:

You better add Gaudio, Costa, Johansson and other mugs to this list...and not Djoker who is only 21 years old and can win many more GS. + it was not a wonder, he is still No.3.

Re: One Slam Wonder Club

People at least remember (mhh, should remember) Costa's spectacular comebacks from 0-2

ToJo was nothing spectacular

Dlouhy is nothing special and neither is Djokovic.

Only difference is one has a slam and one doesn't.

Naah, Costa beat some good players on his way to the final. Best player Johansson beat on his way to the final was Jiri Novak in the semifinals, that match went to 5 sets. In the final Safin beat himself.
