Interesting stat...Federer vs. Chang

I'm sure not too many of you, MTFers, are aware that Federer played 5 times against Michael Chang.

Fed leads the series 4-1.

He won 3 times in Grand Slams against the american, always on hard, but Chang managed to defeat the grass god in Halle, in 2000.

More details, here:

Q. Do you think you would have been able to play as well as you played today, or you think you would have pulled out from the game if it wasn't the Masters Cup final?

ROGER FEDERER: No, Roger Federer doesn't pull out. Otherwise he doesn't walk on court (smiling).

Re: Interesting stat...Federer vs. Chang

You are on fire.

Lucas Arnold is 1-0 against Federer and the legend of Tanko Squillari is 2-0 without losing a set.

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: Interesting stat...Federer vs. Chang

It's funny when two players whom people regard from entirely different times have played each other (and several times at that). Chang won a Grand Slam in the eighties!

Another funny one is Nadal and Agassi (played two times, Nadal won both), also Nadal and Ivanisevic (played two times, Nadal won both).

Re: Interesting stat...Federer vs. Chang

And, of course, I guess is common knowledge that Pat Rafter has 3-0 against the GOAT...
...with the aussie champ defeating the future grass god in Halle next year after Chang did it, and also in the quarters, as Chang did it too...early grass glory denied by Chang, Rafter, Henman and Ancic in Fed's case

Don't bother. I've tried many times but he just won't tell us.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

^- former mormon?

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God
