Re: Guiness records

Are you sure all of those players are in the GBR? If so, I'd sure like to know what for (Becker and Sampras aside, those are obvious)....

Re: Guiness records

Roddick should be in the new edition. he does hold the record, just with someone else, so should be in there.

Andy Roddick.Fernando Verdasco.Richard Gasquet.Tommy Haas

Re: Guiness records

fastest serve, Roddick tied with Rusedski at 149 mph

imo Agassi should make it for successfully returning that serve, lol!

Re: Guiness records

Ah yes, fastest serve, indeed. And if Brad's to be believed, he'll be doing 160 mph in a few years.

I believe Marat was the youngest player ever to reach #1?

He was for a year until Hewitt usurped him.

I think Marat's record is he is the only qualifier in history to beat two gs champions back to back in his gs debut. ( 98 FO: Agassi, Kuerten)

Vass, correct me if i'm wrong.

Wasn't Marat and Kafelnikov doubles match against Argentina the longest doubles match ever? It was like 6 1/2 hrs long, but none of the other guys are listed, so it can't be that. Hmmm...
