in my opinion, years 1991-1992 were very interesting

1995 was also great

2002 doesn't get a mention? Sampras wins 14th slam and retires.

I was thinking about 2002 [but Sampras`s USO run seemed more of a fluke, and Hewitt was #1 but not dominant], but thought 2003 was more significant.. due to Fed beginning his slam run! >>I might change my list if you can give me your Top-10, so i can see which year to push out..:cool:

Start of Open tennis has to be as it reunited all players on 1 tour from the professional and amateur circuits.
