If he had won that match, Fed would have had Calendar year GS

17 + 6 > 14 + 0

4-6 2-6 6-7(7) is not that tight.

Re: Cilic has more GS wins than Legenda!

I've never thought much of Sore Losercic.

Back in 2006, I used to be baffled by his rise to 3-4 in the rankings with all the early exits he endured in majors.

Hahaha, this is like saying high-level tennis wasn't his strong suit.

He just never had the stamina for back-to-back 5 set matches. He was a clear 3rd best player in the world in his peak.

While Montenegro was part of Yugoslavia, its internet domain was .yu, now it is .me

Well, considering it was against Rafa at Roland Garros...

RAFAEL NADAL and GRIGOR DIMITROV

Rafa winning at least one slam in 10 consecutive years is the best achievement in Open Era tennis since Laver won all 4 Grand slam tournaments in the same year!


Don't ever underestimate the heart of a champion!

That's because Cilic is better than Ljubo
