When was the last time a male tennis player won three Australian Opens in a row ??

In any case, Roger will attempt this feat come January 2008 :worship: :worship: :worship:

Well actually Andre Agassi sort of did this only a few years ago;)

well , that way edberg also kind of qualifies,
he won in 85 and 87 (no competion in 86)

The last real 3 in a row was achieved by Roy Emerson
(actually five in a row : 63-67)

So roger has to equal five in a row

The problem is that FED played & lost in 2005:p

Agassi wasn`t defeated he simply didn`t play AO 2002 because he got injured in a warm up event;)

again you`re using false logic:confused:

Edberg won 2-in-a-row [85 & 87]:cool:
Agassi won 3-in-a-row [00, 01 & 03]:angel:

yes Hewitt`s set to play Mumbai next week:cool:
...i think it`s good for Hewitt to play tourneys he hasn`t played before, see if the fans in India like his passionate style:angel:
#also with no Federer in sight it`s a good chance for Lleyton to pick up a title & confidence boost [just as Gonzalez did in Beijing last week:) ]..

of course b4 Mumbai Hewitt has to play Davis Cup against Serbia~~ headed by Djokovic, so we`ll see how Rocky pulls up after the tough clay matches there!!

You're doing quite a fine job at achieving a high seed at that particular contest - especially since you've already made 74 posts around here and still seem to have no idea about the whole thing. :rolleyes:

Yeah, Andre won 26 matches in a row at the Australian, before losing in a five-setter. It was a good run.

26 matches in a row is not the same as winning 3 consecutive AOs. The fact that he wasn't fit enough to play in 2002 is his problem.

His problem, and the other players' blessing. ;)

Yes, I remember that match against Safin. It was a terrific match and Andre had set points in the first two sets I believe, but lost both in tiebreaks. Had Andre been able to beat Safin, I think he would have had a real chance against Federer. You have to remember that was only Federer's second grand slam final and Agassi knew how to wear down his opponents in the intense heat.

Yes, that was really tough -- both tiebreaks were so close.

I have been hoping that someone would put up some clips of this match... the ball-striking from both sides was out of this world! :worship:
