Tweener Curse: How many people won slams after pulling a tweener

I have noticed that everytime Roger has tried to pull off a tweener or has pulled it off, he has not one that slam.
Case: last year, he did it against Djokovic, lost to Del Potro
Case #2: Australian Open against Safin, lost the semis when match point.
Case #3: against Henman, he almost did it and then lost the final to Rafa at Wimbledon (if I am not mistaken, please correct me).
Case #4: we are yet to see if he wins this years US Open

I have not seen other top players actually pulling off Tweeners. Andy Murray has done some crazy shots, but he does not have a slam.

Do you guys remember any top player who has pulled off a tweener and then gone on to win that slam?

Re: Tweener Curse: How many people won slams after pulling a tweener

Surely Voo has got a database of all the times players have played a shot between the legs and whether they went on to win the championship. Would be amateurish of him if he didn't have such a file.

Juan Martin Del Potro

David Ferrer - Tommy Haas - Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Andy Roddick - Juan Carlos Ferrero - Mardy Fish

He hit a tweener against Henman at the U.S. Open, not Wimbledon. Henman was retired the year Nadal beat Federer at Wimbledon.

Then maybe I was wrong on that. Still, that was not a tweener really that he did and he finished with a pass so it shouldn't count I guess

Re: Tweener Curse: How many people won slams after pulling a tweener

The most memorable one for me of course is JCF's between-the-legs shot followed by a volley winner against Agassi at USO semifinal 2003. Someone needs to make a YouTube clip of that rally.

Re: Tweener Curse: How many people won slams after pulling a tweener

Federer hit one against Henman in the US Open 2006, Henman returned it but Fed than passed him and won the point? Then won the slam.

Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUaZ0gn4kNs

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo
