I just love watching tennis, but I really dont understand why the Australian players, namely in recent years, Pat, Leyton and Mark why dont they ever do well in Melbourne, anyway I enjoyed this years tournament although I gotta say that one of the best games I ever saw played was probably back in 98 I think when Philippousis played a massive 5 setter against Michael Chang or was it that the match went for 5 hours, anyway it was amazing, roll on Davis Cup

lleyton has 2 slams under his belt.
So did Pat.
Sounds even, methinks.

The last year Pat played I think he would have won...really, had it not been for the strange cramping episode against Andre. One of the toughest matches to watch. HE (Pat) had been ahead by so much and slowly, he lost, but didn't retire the match, and instead played until the end. I think the audience even game him a standing ovation as he left.

Stupid commentary here gave a ridiculous stat about women who had lost their first three slam finals and how many slams they went on to win after that. Of the 7 or so women listed, NONE of them had ever won a slam, with two exceptions: Jana Novotna (1 slam), and Chris Evert (18 slams).

Now, seeing as how this stat was entriely ridiculous and completely uncorrelational, I still fail to see its validity.
