Andres Gomez: French Open 1990
Boris Becker: Australian Open 1996
Petr Korda: Australian Open 1998
Yevgeny Kafelnikov: Australian Open 1999
Albert Costa: French Open 2002
Andre Agassi: Australian Open 2003
Roger Federer: Australian Open 2010 and Wimbledon 2012
Stanislas Wawrinka: Australian Open 2014

Federer has won the most slams as a father since 1990, two slams.

It's interesting that Federer is the only one who won a slam as a father at Wimbledon since 1990. Nobody won the USO as a father since 1990.

I tell you what, Djokovic better max out this year before Jelena gives birth, cause, as you pointed out, it is very tough to win as a father.

I've read small reports, snippets in the last year or so that Xisca is getting a bit restless at 25, so Nadal also needs to max out the next 1-2 years before starting the family

Roger still can't win 3 slams as a father.

Connors holds the record with 3 slams won as a father.

Those stats show nothing really, several guys from the list actually won their first slam after they become fathers and Agassi was already 32. Pretty much Federer is the only one to compare with. :)

I agree with the "stats mean nothing" position in this case.

If he keeps his motivation up, he should win another few for sure.

Becker's title should count multiple. Only God knows how many kids he had in moment of winning AO
This. The relevant statistic in this case is the number of slams times the number of kids. Connors had only 1 child when he won his last three GSs. So Fatherer is the undisputed GOAT in this category.
