Trivia Question

Federer currently holds eight titles (Munich, Halle, Wimbledon, Vienna,
Masters Cup, Australia, Dubai, and Indian Wells).

Who was the last player before Fed to win 8 titles over a 12 month period?

Re: Trivia Question

P.S vote and don't cheat. Will be interesting if the winning option is correct.

Re: Trivia Question

I think the answer is Lendl, so did you want the titles 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".

Re: Trivia Question

Nope not Lendl George, even if he did, he wouldn't be the latest, Muster won 12 titles in 1995

I rephrased the question a bit to avoid confusion

Re: Trivia Question

Sorry I missed that Wyver you know Muster held more than 12 titles, if you continue on that he defended a few 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".

Re: Trivia Question

Muster actually held 17 titles at one stage Wyver.

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".

Re: Trivia Question

12 in the calendar year, yes it was my fault for not reading the question correctly since I was the one who went on about his 40 claycourt wins in a row, and the fact he won Barcelona, Monte Carlo, Rome and the French Open.

The ironic thing he didn't win Kitzbhuel and he could never win in Vienna.

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