Thanks Lalitha, you have just made my day
I usually don't like comparing players from different eras in terms of what they achieved, but if you compare Pete and Rogi, they are very close now:
By September 1994, Pete had won 1 Aus, 2 Wimbies, 2 U.S.
Rogi has 1 Aus, 2 Wimbies, 1 U.S. so in effect the only thing seperating them is the 1990 uso Pete won when he was 19.
By that time Pete had collected 5 TMS events: 1 IW, 2 Miami, 1 Rome, 1 Cincy
Rogi has 4: 1 IW, 2 Hamburg, 1 Toronto
They had both won 1 TMC title respectively.
The only other major difference is that Pete finished '93 as #1, and while Rogi was close, he didn't in '03.
So all in all, if Rogi stays healthy and keeps it together I definitely see him with a chance of equalling and perhaps even surpassing Pete's record. However, there is still a looooooong way to go till that happens.
