Same here. I just wanted him to win another slam or two. I didn't think that he would script another fairy-tale comeback like in 2009.

Indeed. But if you remember when Pete won Wimbledon-00 it was a lot of hype about him breaking Emerson`s record.

Gasquet is next №1

That's because you, like most, were not interested in the achievements of a boring serve bot clown with the wepons of a diseased turnip.

Murray wins Wimbledon 2016 after Djokovic is blue shelled by Querrey. Thanks Querrey!

For the men, yes. The Women didn't have a pro tour.

Steffi has 377, Martina 332. Those are the only two in front of him. Though, Court would have even more if rankings had existed back then. She has more #1 seeds at slams than Steffi (just).

I know, thank you. You still didn`t answer the question. I was just thinking about thread "100 titles for Fed". Well, it is from the same category.

If you want an honest answer I'd have to say I doubt it. But one can always hope. Djokovic is obviously the only one who can prevent him from taking at least the next six months. If he can take those he'd need another year.

Actually, he said 'if #1 and slam, I eat both'. So I guess he doesn't have either now... (unless, of course, he had three to being with)

Rosol beat an injured Nadal?
