Remarkable.

But last three since '09 are pushers [MTF] logic

Quicksand nowadays


Bjorn Borg:

French Open W (1974, 1975, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981)

Wimbledon W (1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980)

3 Channel Slams; 4 Consecutive RG; 5 Consecutive SW19

GOAT

Not just that, those 5 are at the same time the winners and the finalists

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Re: Last 5 Years: 5 Different US Open Winners!

It kind of makes sense its a long season - fatigue and injuries can play a part with 1 or 2 of the top guys, the surface is neutral - dosent favor any particular gamestyle - gives more guys a shot.

Tsonga/Berdych could continue this trend going into 2013.

Go Andy!

So very very proud to be a fan of Mr Andy Murray Wimbledon Champion 2013

Re: Last 5 Years: 5 Different US Open Winners!

It's simple: USO scheduling screwed over many players, which weren't favored by USTA. (except during Olderer's 'reign' where USTA arranged perfect schedule for the old man every time )
