I went back and looed that up. 9 diferent players won that duo ( MC & RG) Borg was the only who did it twice.
Then came Rafa did it 8 times.
Going to check and see the Rome and RG connection.

MC isn't particularly close to RG courts in terms of construction either. It's also quite a bit slower, because of temperatures and the sea air - not my opinion, that of the MC head groundsman.
some great points here ...
No, either way the favorite is obviously Nadal.
well, nobody denies it. He won it so many times.
