Re: There is no finish line...
I would like to add for consideration a few more to the list of "almosts"
- Another FO would make him the only person with "career double slam" WOW
- One more clay title would make him the only person to win 10 titles on clay, grass and hard (now he is tied at 9 with Connors)
- Although he has the most slam finals appearances he does not have the honor of owning the most "won or lost to the eventual winner" in slams. he is at 28 vs. Lendl at 31. Astoundingly Lendl lost to the eventual champ 23 times!!! i do think this is an important milestone if he can ever reach it
- Did we put in here Olympic singles gold??? OK obvious but still
