Re: Miami: The Fifth Slam? (a non-Federer discussion :o )

a good indicator for whether this is the "fifth" slam if there is such a thing is to see whether safin wants to play some tennis this week.........

no 5th grand slam without 5-set epics, other than that it's pretty close.

Close to what cervantes it's a TMS event there are 8 other of them as well.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

It's just another TMS event, nothing special about it except that it's usually won by americans, and I highly doubt it when a great player, say, Kefelnikov,retires he thinks: "damn, I haven't won AMS Miami".

Yes, fine players such as Mecir, Wilander and Muster won it. I wonder if Mecir would have rather have won a proper Slam instead of this event?

Yes, Miloslav is so overjoyed by winning the 5th Slam it makes up for his losses at the AO and US Open final, and the fact he lead 2 sets to love against Edberg and a break in the 5th at Wimbledon.

The victory in the 5th Slam made up for it. Thanks for setting me straight.
