Re: Who is the best player that never won a GS tournament?

I'm afraid we're at a point where Nalby takes this title from Rios and keeps it for a long time to come

But Murray has yet to reach the semis of all 4 majors or win the YEC/WTF unlike Nalbandian. And Nalbandian has beaten Fed 8 times

Most repeated thread on MTF ever?

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).

Re: Who is the best player that never won a GS tournament?

Nalbandian, USO 03 really changed everything for him, that SF match against Roddick, up 2 sets to 0, had he won that, who knows how he would have played against Ferrero in the final

and also andy murray, not a fan of the guy, but i think he is too talented a player not to win AT LEAST 1 grand slam in his career!

Re: Who is the best player that never won a GS tournament?

Original.

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".
