Where did those 2 extra titles of Federer this year spring from, Aus? It's 4 in North America, 2 in Europe, 1 in Australia, and 1 in Asia (plus of course Doha - does Asia encompass the Middle East as well? I'm not sure).

Yes, I think Middle East is Asia.
So 2 in Asia.

Middle East is definetely Asia. There is no continent named Middle East.
The continents are America,Africa,Europe,Asia and Oceania (well Antartida too). So Australia is not a continent.

Depends on what textbook you`re referencing;) ... Australasia [encompassing Australia, New Zealand & Papua New Guinea] has long been termed a continent:cool: .... However other publications term this Oceania:confused: ~~ which also includes islands far out in the Pacific:eek:

Springfield, Buenos Aires, Virginia Beach, Roland Garros, Kitzbuhel, Washington, Louisville, South Orange, Columbus, US Open, Paris, Tehran, Bogota, Santiago, Buenos Aires, Johannesburg WCT

Vilas 77:[Nth America 7-titles, Sth America 4-titles, Europe 3-titles, Asia 1-title, Africa 1-title]~~ note he also made the final of AO... had he won he would have won titles on 6-continents!!!

Nowadays, you'd have to play Casablanca to achieve this.

Vilas came as close as anyone ever will:cool: ... He won on 5-continents & lost the final of AO that year>> if he`d won then he would have had the magical six:eek:

Also Vilas did win the AO of the following year~~ 1978 AO in January... so he missed the mark by only a few weeks:sad:

PS~~ Somehow I don`t see Federer playing Casablanca & Buenos Aires in the same year anytime soon;) ~what do you think mate:confused:

:lol: Nor do I.

Even Massu is more likely to achieve this. He always enters Casablanca and the South American tournaments. But, off course, he'll never win an Australian or American title.

Puerta might have achieved it, if he hadn't taken too many drugs off course. ;)

;) ~Still you never know...they may bring back the Johannesburg tourney->> in which case Federer would want to play because his mum is Sth African:cool: . Then there`s an outside chance Buenos Aires may become an AMS tourney~ esp. with the brand new stadium they built there!

I heard there are 7 continents: N America, S America, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australasia and Antarctica.

Here, America is one continent. Then, there are like divisions: South America, Central America and North America.
The others would be Antarctica Africa,Asia,Europe and Oceania (or Australia, but I consider it only a country).
If you go to en.wikipedia.org , there is an explanation of the models of continents that there are in the world. (I searched that in case I was being really stupid;) ).

To be honest with you I`ve heard of all three terms used to describe the country where I was educated as continents:confused:

At the catholic primary school it was AUSTRALIA

At the state middle school (up to years 7-8) it was AUSTRALASIA

At the private high school it was OCEANIA:rolleyes:


............It doesn`t really matter what we call it ~~ just so long as we can find it on the map:cool:

>>>... Had Vilas won the AO in 77 [he lost the final to Tanner]~>> he would have been the 1st man ever to win tournaments in 6-Contintents during a calendar year:angel: ... Even Federer won`t come close to matching that;)

Sorry, but where have u learnt geography???
America is ONE continent and we can divide it in South, Central and North, divided by the Panama and Tehuantepec istms respectively (sorry i don´t know how to say istmos). There´s no reason to call North America a continent and South America another one (and in that case what is Central America???).

I said the same a few posts above. :)
I know there are places where it's called Australia but still for me, Australia is only a country and not a continent.

Vilas Aussie Open 78 started on Dec of 77.

No, Australian Open 1978 was hold within December 1978 - January 1979.

In 1977, there were 2 Australian Open holding - in January and December.

Vilas only played once in January and was runner-up.

Vilas won AO first time in January 7, 1979, but actually it is Australian Open 1978.

After 1977, AO held in December until 1985. No tournament in 1986, and AO returned to January in 1987.

I'm in the United States. The continents I learned were North America, South America, Antartica, Europe, Australia, Africa, and Asia.

It makes more sense to split the Americas up in my mind, but that's probably just because that's how I've always been taught. :lol:
