PD: And the highest he ever made it in the rankings was #4 (1-Jan-90), not 3.


Favourite players:

Nadal ~ Fish [Fisho] ~ Ferrero [Juancho] ~ Hewitt [Llautó] ~ Nalbandian

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

I'll post a few more for JMac and Lendl later. Connors had an amazing amount of bitches. There are the +10 turkeys, then there were about 10 more +8 semi-turkeys, another 15 or so +6 pigeons, and at least 25 more +5 bitches.

JMac had a big group as well since he did almost all of his winning in a very short period of time (relatively speaking) from 1978-1985. I believe he had 70+ wins in all of those years, the longest such streak.

Actually two turkeys:
Courier 16-4
T.Martin 18-4

Woodforde could be a third turkey but defeated Sampras after 10 consecutive loses at Queens Club.

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

goran had a great record vs. rusedski...so many close matches all going his way. he was down two sets to love and mps in vienna once and came back. however, greg had the last laugh and he won their last match (even though goran bagelled him that time )

my favorite was the worst number 3 player in the world

Both Goran and Pete had 9-1 against Rusedski. Rusedski didn't have Mp's in Vienna... He had 10 break points when he was leading 2-0 up: 1:0 (40-15), 3:2 (40-0), 4:3 (5 advantages bp's)

Bjorkman has 10-1 against Max. If he's playing in the DC tie, I'll put the 11-1 here...
