Tim henman for NEVER winning wimbledon!

I am sure he still has nightmares from is semi final loss against Goran ivanisevic in 2001.

Re: worst luck player/atp+wta history?

If this is meant to be a serious thread

Kent Carlsson
Vinciguerra
Edgardo Massa
Michael Russell
Tommy Haas

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".

That doesn't deserve a serious response. Tursunov has had worse injuries for a start.

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: worst luck player/atp+wta history?

What about Jay Berger (USA) - he was No. 7 at the age of 23 and forced to retire one year later (I don't know why)...

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces

Blake especially in 2004-2005

various that had dating Hingis before Radek (Alonso, Norman)

Nothing on Kent Carlsson. Berger had a knee and shoulder problem and Krickstein had heaps of problems.

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".

but safin has so much more talent than tursunov. He could have done so much more in his career without injury, so yes it does deserve and a response.

Re: worst luck player/atp+wta history?

Not the worst luck when compared to Carlsson a guy who reached the top 10 and had to retire at 20 because of having 5 knee operations and could only play on clay, cause of the condition and the injury was originally done in the US on hardcourts.

Muster with the car accident, with the drunk driver going the wrong way and he was jammed in between two cars. He ended up with one leg shorter than the other, and had to restrict his play on hardcourt which lead to his hip degenerating. There are many others as well who have suffered bad luck, but they aren't always famous, so they tend to be forgotten about.

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: worst luck player/atp+wta history?

To the worthy names already mentioned, I'd add Rios - he never achieved his full potential - first the back fracture and then the double groin op - first player to have such an op. He was never the same after 1999.

I think for me the most talented of all times was (Marcelo) Rios. Marat Safin, 2004

Marcelo has an enormous talent. Gaudio, RG champion 2004

"Rios ... he has a beautiful game, great forehand and great touch," Federer, World number 1

Guillermo Coria: "Ríos and Vilas are my two idols"
