Re: Which "One Slam Wonder" had the best career?

C'mon, how can you place Juan Martin del Potro there considering his age and everyone else age?

Re: Which "One Slam Wonder" had the best career?

actually it's close call between Goran, Ferrero and Moya . Spaniards were #1 but Goran had 3 GS finals. maybe Goran has the edge at the end

Re: Which "One Slam Wonder" had the best career?

actually I think Muster had the best career of all these guys. He was ranked no.1 in the world like Roddick, won a Slam and has more titles overall than Roddick.

Re: Which "One Slam Wonder" had the best career?

4 slams finals for Roddick and all 4 he lost to Fed . This is big . Ferrero lost slam final to Costa, pretty big black spot for me

Re: Which "One Slam Wonder" had the best career?

Muster and Roddick are close. When muster was at the top he was more dominant but Roddick stayed at the subtop way longer.

The come Goran Moya and Ferrero, Goran diddn't get to number one but was closer to win more slams
