Rod Laver was the most successful JOURNEYMAN ever [#2 was Canas]

Canas has only won 7-titles total~> though he sure has won them in some of the World`s far corners [the definitive JOURNEYMAN]!!

2001--Casablanca [Africa]
2002--Chennai [Asia], Montreal / Toronto [Nth America]
2004--Shanghai [Asia], Stuttgart, Umag [Europe]
2007--Costa Do Sauipe [Sth America]

...
>> So Canas has 7-titles on 5-contintents [though spread years apart]~> this is quite impressive!!!<
..
If Canas can win in Australia or New Zealand then he`ll complete the set [until they come up with the Antarctica Open]



PS.. I deliberately chose to steer away from Canas`s controversial drug ban, since it`s been discussed at length elswhere, though of course this is also part of his journey!!

Only three continents, most titles at Europe, he is not a journeyman.

In 2004 Cañas won a Challenger in New Caledonia NC is located in the southwest Pacific Ocea nearly to Australian and New Zealand And he defeated then two Australian players: Bourgeois & Reid.

Cañas certainly doesn't fit in with my criteria for a journeyman either. But some of these words mean different things to different people I guess.

I support......
