Re: 2 slam wonders...


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: 2 slam wonders...

Im not sure you understand what Two slam wonders actually maens. That means they were only good in two slams, and this list is far from accurate..

Peter Polansky
Nestor - Chvojka - Pospisil - Raonic - Peliwo

Re: 2 slam wonders...

How many Slams do you have to win before you can get respect around here?

Obviously at least one more than however many Nadal has won!

Re: 2 slam wonders...

I think a better idea would be to post 1-season wonders; a list of players who just had one really good season but did little appart from that.

Players that come to mind are:
Rainer Schuettler - year-end rank in 2003 was 6, next best year-end rank was 33
Magnus Norman - year-end rank in 2000 was 4, next best year-end rank was 15
Jonas Bjorkman - year-end rank in 1997 was 4, next best year-end rank was 24

lllllllllllllllllllllllllllll

Your avatar pic of Roddick with the thumbs up is so appropriate for this, the sarcastic expression of achievement.
