* Mikael Tillstrom won his first title in Chennai 1997 not in Singapore 1999 (he lost there the final to Rios)
* Tomas Smid won first title (Sarasota) in 1978 not in Stuttgart 1979
* I think Adelaide "1991" suits more to Kulti than "1990"

I always knew I was missing out some players, but probably wouldn't have checked the ATP site again if you hadn't reminded me. Can't believe I forgot some of those names, particularly Boutter and Lundgren.

I should have updated this thread after Wimbledon, I think it's best to do it after every Grand Slam except RG, given that Wimbledon follows on so quickly from that.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.
