Are you sure all of those players are in the GBR? If so, I'd sure like to know what for (Becker and Sampras aside, those are obvious)....

Roddick should be in the new edition. he does hold the record, just with someone else, so should be in there.

Deboogle!.

fastest serve, Roddick tied with Rusedski at 149 mph

imo Agassi should make it for successfully returning that serve, lol!

Ah yes, fastest serve, indeed. And if Brad's to be believed, he'll be doing 160 mph in a few years.

Deboogle!.

I don't see how that's possible.... but ah, let Brad talk ;)

so no one knows what Marat and Goran did? I'm curious!

I believe Marat was the youngest player ever to reach #1?

goran hit the most aces in one season (something like 1,500 :eek: ) and the most aces at one wimbledon (208).

i'm not sure what safin did...

He was for a year until Hewitt usurped him. ;)

I think Marat's record is he is the only qualifier in history to beat two gs champions back to back in his gs debut. ( 98 FO: Agassi, Kuerten)

Vass, correct me if i'm wrong.

what did Safin and Goran do?
Wasn't Marat and Kafelnikov doubles match against Argentina the longest doubles match ever? It was like 6 1/2 hrs long, but none of the other guys are listed, so it can't be that. Hmmm...

Most broken rackets in a year? ;)

Hewitt was the youngest male player to play in the main draw of a slam, if I'm not mistaken. He was 15 when he qualified for Australia in 1997.

I have no idea if that's actually "in the book", mind you.

I believe that Richard Gasquet was the youngest player to win a main draw match at a Masters Series (15). I'm not sure if that stat goes back and counts when they were "Super 9" tournaments or not, though.

i think marat's is something that begins with "youngest" and it isn't that one abt 2 consecutive gs champs-- what kind of record is that anyway???

Was Hewitt the lowest ranked ATP player to ever win an ATP title? He was ranked in the 500s when he won Adelaide at 16.

I'm curious to know who beat him to the punch, if he's not. :)

most wins over former gs champions in a tournament ;)

It's obvious isn't it ;)

Ilhame, I know that you want Marat to set more records, but doing it this way is radiculous!

Goran is the best WC performance. It seems he should be in the book twice for the aces...they might just not print it.
Marat is the youngest no.1

no, Llegs is the youngest ever world number one...untill Nadal takes that title away from him ;) Marat holds the record for the most broken racquets in a year

Chang has to be in the Guiness book for the youngest winner of a grand slam...

is it serius about Llegs? coz I'm holding the book right infront of me and unless I'm holucinating there is Marat's photo infront of me.

Kiara

yeah I am he was 19 and only a few months younger than Marat, are you holding the 2000 issue of the book? ;)

Vass I was kidding ;)

Lleyton took the record of youngest #1 away from Marat in 2001 ;)

You forgot two guys:

Costa and Corretja!

The played the match (it was actually a tie-break) with more public, in the Camp Nou, Barcelona.

A lot of the records you are discussing are very trivial
Chang should definetly be in there though
