Do 1 slam wonders retire forgotten?

In say 10 years after they retire, do modern 1 slam wonders retire essentially forgotten?

In this era of 2 slam wonders like Hewitt and Safin, and dominant players like Aggassi, Sampras, Nadal, Federer over the last 15 years, is it likely the 1 slam wonders Roddick, Johanassen, Gaudio, Del Potro etc will be rememebred very well 15 - 20 years from now?

I think some of the one scam wonders will be forgotten, Roddick will be memorable because he played Federer so many times in the finals of grand sham tournaments.

Which other 1 scam wonders will be memorable more than others?

Discuss.

I can't remember who this Del Potro is right now, in 10 years perspective I'm more than sure that even 6 Slam wonders would be forgotten for good.

I think people yes, and people no. People that watch tennis for sport in if same, and not por extremefanatic for a player not forgotten them.

Player that won 1 or 2 GS but anymore maybe yes. But roddick, safin, hewitt I think definitively not. They were n° 1

Do you remember Rafter (2 GS + 2 finales), Brugera (2 GS + 1 final),Chang (1 GS + 3 finals), Ivanisevic (1 GS + 3 finals), Stich (1 GS + 2 finals)?? I do.

Del Potro is 22 years old :rolleyes: Quite early to say that he will retire forgotten with one slam. Imagine opening the same thread in early 2003 and asking: "will Federer retire slamless and forgotten ?"

^Comparing brainless ballbasher to future GOAT in their early years is a crime to the sport. Potro is finished. We can easily sum his career up now.

Awww, looks like tennis is just not your sport.:hug:
Fed hits the ball, Del Mugro bashes it. I thought it's so axiomatic, but you never know with MTF.

Pathetic, immature post. Just because you hope so, does NOT make it so.

Why don't we just stop with this WILL HE BE FORGOTTEN-shit? Nobody will know until 20 years from now, so why discuss it?

Thanks to mtf alone, one slam wonders are never forgotten. We continually have threads discussing if they will be forgotten, so no.

There is an easy way to view this.

Name every player you can that played in 1990 without checking references, and see how many of the slam winners from that time you remember. Then post results.

Trick question. Tennis wasn't invented until 2003.

If you a real tennis fan you wont forget "one slam wonders", I remember much more obscure players such as Enquist or Chesnokov, why would I forget Roddick Pat Cash or Yannick Noah?
