Re: H2H Turkeys: When being a pigeon just isn't enough. 10+ differential required

McEnroe - Leconte : 10-0

1989 FRA V USA Q U.S.A. Carpet RR 6-3 6-1
1988 Paris Indoor France Carpet R32 7-5 6-1
1987 World Team Cup Germany Clay RR 2-6 7-5 6-1
1985 Australian Open Australia Grass R16 5-7 7-6 3-6 7-6 6-1
1985 Milan Italy Carpet Q 6-3 6-4
1984 Montreal / Toronto Toronto, Canada Hard R16 McEnroe 7-6 7-6
1983 Sydney Indoor Australia Hard F 6-1 6-4 7-5
1982 USA V FRA F France Clay RR 6-2 6-3
1982 Wembley England Carpet Q 6-3 7-5
1982 Montreal / Toronto Toronto, Canada Hard Q 7-6 6-2

On a side note, McEnroe is 4-0 against Noah making the French double.
Wilander is 11-2 against Leconte, quite good but not good enough, sorry Mats.
Sampras - Pioline : 9-0, that was close as well.

It would be nice to have a sum up of all turkeys in the first post.

I'm pretty sure this thread was started with Roddick in mind.

Actually, it was during the discussion of whether Gonzo is to became a double-pigeon after the AO final I suppose

Re: H2H Turkeys: When being a pigeon just isn't enough. 10+ differential required

I wonder who is the ultimate turkey. Given the answers so far, the classic turkey is a guy who spent all his career in the top 30 but never made it to the very top.

Boetsch was beaten 10-0 by Edberg but won their last meeting in 96, escaping the turkey status.

Brad Gilbert was 0-16 against Lendl and 4-15 against Edberg.

He made number 3 in the world and never made a Slam semi final.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Goran Ivanisevic almost made the cut against Greg Rusedski and leads 9-1. Unfortunately he blew it by losing their last match in Auckland in 2002 despite handing out a bagel to Greg in that match
