I’m wrong or i don’t see Guy Forget with 11 titles on your free Report.
Xcuse my poor English
You’re right, I don’t know how this could happen but the whole project is huge and some names can be missing here or there :/ Forget will be obviously added to the FR and Stats.
And don’t worry about your English, you can post on my blog in French anytime you want. French is my 7th language but there’s a chance for me to learn some new words 😉
Longest tie-breaks (at least 32 points):
Rotterdam 2010, 1R: Michael Berrer d. Araud Clement 7-6(16), 4-6, 6-4
Araud : Arnaud
* Matches with four tie-breaks.
1971 – Stanley Matthews beat D.Richard Russell 6-7, 6-7, 7-6, 7-6, 6-3 first round US Open
Paul Capdeville / John Isner : 6-7(5), 6-7(2), 7-6(3), 7-6(5), 6-4 !
Dommage for Simon, lead 6-0, 3-0 : final score 6-0, 6-2, 6-3.
Longest winning streaks
Kent Carlsson (1988)
* Carlsson during the streak gave one walkovers.
It’s better to mentionned for all the players (like Borg) who have a w/o on his series.
What do you think about this ?
Yes Wanaro, you’re right. Thanks for corrections 🙂
stats 1968 – 2010
1996 Piline = Pioline
First time winners : Carretero
I see you’re a very careful reader 😛
Actually, everything is perfect here, man. The Guy Forget information is also there; you haven’t missed it. This French guy just has to read more carefully. Great stuff, by the way. Many thanks for this great encyclopaedia!
You have a 2.0 version : )
I’m glad you like it 🙂
By the way, mentioning Guy Forget, I think that you should include in the Stories section what he did in 1994: he was missing from the ATP circiut for 1 year and 3 months due to an injury, and had descended to number 1135 in ATP rankings. When he returned in April, he reached the 1/4-finals at Wimbledon, played the final in Gstaad, reached a few semi-finals and 1/4-finals, and at the end of the year he was already in the top 50; and by April 1995 he was already in the top 20 again, where he was when this injury befell him, in March 1993. This is the biggest comeback ever done by a male tennis player. I think it should be mentioned. Cheers.
I’ve mentioned that Forget advanced to the quarter-finals as a lowest ranked player (Wimbledon ’94). Thanks for suggestions Ivan 🙂 For me as an author it’s a problem which sentences should be added to a story and which removed because I want to deliver the most important events in my opinion, simultaneously avoiding a potential accusation that I prefer some players over the others.
I’m convinced that Forget’s story in 1994 should be included to a book about the best players in the Open era 🙂
1975 Bournemouth, QF: Patrick Proisy d. Ilie Nastase 4-5 def.
1975 Washington, QF: Cliff Richey d. Ilei Nastase 7-6, 6-5 def. : ILIE
1975 Stockholm, rr: Arthur Ashe d. Ilie Nastase 1-6, 7-5, 4-1 def.
In the Free Report, I found some mistakes
I don’t see the next players
Gaston Gaudio 
Guillermo Cañas 
Dominik Hrbaty, Dmitry Tursunov* 
Paradorn Srichaphan 
Mariano Zabaleta, Mariano Puerta, Bohdan Ulihrach, Fernando Vicente, Mario Ancic 
Shuzo Matsuoka, Peter Wessels, Derrick Rostagno, Daniele Bracciali, Jerome Haehnel, Leander Paes, Max Mirnyi, Rajeev Ram, Ricardo Mello, Santiago Ventura, Wesley Moodie
*He had 6 in the end of 2010, he won a tournament this year.
Thanks, I haven’t any idea why they’re missing. It was a year ago, perhaps I was too tired to check all the details many times 🙁
Sorry, if I bother so much. I find some differences between Media Guide and your list of winners. If I am wrong tell me 🙂
Name [Free Report, Media Guide]
Bjorn Borg [62-63]
Sandy Mayer [10-11]
Guillermo Coria [8-9]
Andres Gimeno [6-7]
Tom Okker [13-31!]
And I see David Sanchez twice(one like he have 2 titles, and the other like he have 1 title)
Probably it’s connected to Media Guide errors, because I used Media Guide at the end of 2010 to prepare this part of “Stats” and “Free Report”. “Stats” and “Scorelines” I treat as a bonus to “Stories” therefore I didn’t count title of every player separately, just trusted in this what Media Guide offered at the end of 2010.
In my book is written that Borg in London (February 1974) won his first title, he did it in Auckland a month before. My mistake is probably connected to the fact that ATP hadn’t Auckland in Borg’s activity once, now it’s included. Unfortunately there are mistakes on the ATP website which make confusion 🙁
Well I’m checking in the ATP page and I think that they added recently some tournaments in their ATP Result Archive and activities of players.
Jimmy Connors: Now in the Result archive have 109 titles like in the Media Guide, but the ATP added Nottingham 1976 and this tournament is not in the Media Guide. Instead of is the WCT in Puerto Rico. S:
I hope ATP have the same stats than the next Media Guide
