Hand it Over :p

from http://www.tennisone.com/Larson/Larsonnews.home.htm



It's well-known that some players "own" some tournaments -- Pete Sampras and Wimbledon being an obvious example; he has more Wimbledons in the past decade than all others combined.

But what is the actual extent of this sort of "ownership" of tournaments? Some events seem to always be kicking up new winners, others tend to go to the "usual suspects." We thought we'd investigate.

We're going to look at all men's events which date back at least to 1990. The following list shows all such tournaments and their various winners. Note: This is based on our reckoning of the age of tournaments. The ATP lists the year tournaments came into existence -- but that's often the year the tournament license was issued; the actual tournament frequently did not settle into its current site for many years. This makes any such list a little imperfect. Our criterion is this: if a tournament has changed "audience" (moved to a city beyond casual driving distance of its former site), then it's out. (Example of a moving tournament: Houston, formerly known -- as best we can tell -- as Pinehurst and Birmingham and who knows what. It wasn't in Houston for much of the 1990s; it's out. Similarly the Stuttgart Masters, since it's now in Madrid. Frankly, we'd be more impressed with the ATP's claims of age if it would state just when a tournament moved to its current site, and where it was before that.) In one case -- Tokyo -- we followed the tournament date rather than license.

The author will admit to finding a certain amount of nostalgia in this list: He won that? Given the length of the list and the time it took to compile, we'll just give you the results and let you play at nostalgia, too; an analysis will wait for next time.

The line "Number of Winners" is the number of different players who, in our 13-year period, have won the event. The maximum is 13, meaning that there have been no repeat winners in the period.

In the line "Biggest Winner," the final notation "(x2)" or similar indicates the number of times the most frequent winner won the event. So for Adelaide, for instance, the line reads

Biggest Winner: Hewitt, Kafelnikov, Kulti (x2)

This means that Lleyton Hewitt, Yevgeny Kafelnikov, and Nicklas Kulti are the most regular winners at Adelaide; each has won it twice in our thirteen-year span.

Re: Hand it Over :p

yes he was...is...

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)
