Default Re: The Great Big Super-Duper Title Resource Thread

Yes, I tend to follow them like a sheep following the herd, and they're always revising the tallies - mostly up, but sometimes down (Connors apparently has two less titles than I previously thought, so I had to change that).

Despite TennisGrandSlam's LOUD protestations, I'm not including players like Laver because their numbers don't take into account pre-Open Era titles, including his first Grand Slam. And I'm updating this thread again after the TMC, as there's no point revising it week after week.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.
