2002 was a very strange year in the Grand Slams.. I mean, Johansson and Costa winning AO and RG against heavy-favorites Safin and Ferrero in the finals... Then Hewitt winning Wimbledon in another crazy tournament, before Sampras winning his last title and match of his career at the US Open!
Rogi Federer & Novak Djokovic
Tommy Haas - Viktor Troicki - Mikhail Youzhny - Lleyton Hewitt - Janko Tipsarevic - Stanislas Wawrinka - J. C. Ferrero
My thread yesterday which was more worthy of a discussion was deleted. You lame ass punk.
ah yes, of course, the mighty Lemon Water gets to decide which threads are deemed "worthy", and feels the need to express his discontent at tennis fans discussing past tennis results on a tennis forum. take your irritatingly pointless intolerance somewhere else - funnily enough, people can discuss whatever they want, especially when it's not overly-opinionated or remotely offensive to anyone.
don't have a clue what your thread was, but I'm sure it was wonderfully average.

The point of this is to look back and compare with today, and wonder- could a grand slam draw open up sometime in the future and we end up with a Tipsarevic, or a Wawrinka or anyone taking advantage and picking up a shock slam or are those days long gone? Stan almost defeated Nole after all...
Hopefully.Would be great for tennis.The same players over and over again in the final stages of Slams is just terrible.
Great OP btw.
