When was the last time.......

...that two players won double digit titles in the same year?

Now that Rafael has won his 10th title in Beijing and Roger won his 10th at the U.S. Open we have a situation where 2 players won 10 titles each in the same year. Does anyone know when was the last time such a thing happened if at all?

Thanks Nacho :yeah:

So indeed it was a long long time ago- in this day and age where the competition is deeper and more intense than ever that is an unbelievable achievement by both of them.

Such an event, considering the depth of the competition, must indeed be rare. In this year, it reflects two facts: Roger sustaining his level and Rafa maturing faster among the peers of his generation. However, all credit to Roger and Rafa, what they accomplished so far is amazing.

oops, I've just found this at the atp site:

Nadal equals World No. 1 Roger Federerís mark of 10 titles in 2005. Nadal and Federer are the first duo since 1981 to win 10 titles in a season. That year No. 1 John McEnroe and No. 2 Ivan Lendl won 10 titles each.

1981- still a long time ago ;)

What makes anyone think that the competition is deeper now than it was twenty years ago? Take a look at the Top Ten rankings of 1985 and compare them to 2005... 2005 deep? Laughable.

Rafa = Fed Killa

Nice try :devil:

I learned a valuable lesson about what alcohol does to the body last New Year's Eve :angel:

And no, said amount does nothing to fuel one's libido to put it mildly. In fact from my experience the effect is quite the opposite. :tape:
