# Yeah in the end it`s all about winning the big titles & Rios`s 98 season was very close to being great~> unfortunately he lost the only final of any historical significance that year
* Pat Rafter`s 97 season was a beauty
.. Losing 6-finals & only winning the one that mattered~ US Open.... That one made me happy & helped him get into the Hall of Fame
This is a turning point.
If Rafter failed to win US Open 1997, he might disappear from the Tennis field soon, however, he catched the chance!
If Rios won Australian Open, he may be the tennis king next to Sampras (Just I think)
Likewsie, if Ferrero defeated A-Rod for US Open 2003 title, he were the double slam winners in 2003 and create his own dynasty!
But chance will not wait people!
Rogi lost the chance to be YE NO.1 of 2003, but he never give up! Now I see the three-year-in-row YE NO.1.
