Fed was a smug bast@rd leopardHe was a horrible winner , I esp hated how he lauded in front of Roddick in 2009 There was no need for that after such a battle
I don't remember that...... may not have seen the game

nadal and novak played 10 times against eachother at the french open.......no two players can have played eachother at a slam more than this?
remember asking this once, think Evert-Navratilova was the record

fantastic that Novak wins the 23rd slam on the same day that the boy he grew up with in juniors wins a title on grass with a metal hip.The Big 4 took different journeys but will always be stars in the same constellation. Rgeir greatness was forged from their rivalry.Novak said he wanted to show that there are no limits, only in the mind. He proved that today.
Fook off with your big 4 bollocks.
Murray was never more than just a fly in the ointment
We are so fortunate to have THREE great players at the same time who have pushed the game to unimaginable levels.

the slams have the perfect mix....2 on hardcourt and 1 on the two extremes..........this is the way it has been since 1988 when aus open went to hard court. i cant think of any players since then whose two best surfaces were clay and grass.........there have been lots who were great on hard and clay - lendl, willander, courier and lots who were great on hard and grass - sampras, murray.........i cant think of any who were great on clay and grass and below on hard..........bjorg won 6 french and 5 wimbledon but couldnt get it done on hardcourt despite losing a few times in final of USO..........but times were diff then. there were way more tournaments on indoor carpet than outdoor hardcourt. playing wimbledon on hardcourt would be like california without sunshine.
I'd suggest some kind of hybrid surface, definitely not hard but similar to grass rather than clay
