    He has to play Wimbledon one more time at least. Wouldn’t mind him making his finale in Flushing either.

    Last of the Big Four to win a Grand Slam tournament and the first to punch out. Not much coming up behind them. Hate to say it but teen Slam winners Boris Becker, Mats Wilander and Michael Chang ain’t walking through that door.

    Venus on right now against some Romanian I've never heard of, and the Romanian is the seeded one. Also surprising is that Buzarnescu is 30. Don't see too many matchups of players in their 30s on tour anymore.

    I may be in the minority, but IMO there was never a Big Four. Just a Big Three.

    Grand Slam titles

    Roger Federer: 20
    Rafael Nadal: 17
    Novak Djokovic: 14

    Andy Murray: 3
    Stan Wawrinka: 3
    Marin Cilic: 1
    Juan Martin Del Potro: 1

    Murray seems to fit better with the bottom group, although he did lose eight GS finals to just one for Wawrinka and del Potro and two for Cilic.
