The FO-Wimby double in the same year ('the Channel double').

The three players are:
1) Borg (his achievement imo stands head and shoulders above the other two because the surfaces were so different back then, also he did it three times (1978-1980)

2) Rafa (2008, 2010)

3) Fed (2009)


that was too easy

Gary Moser

I think "the most difficult feat in tennis" was accomplished by
Stefan Edberg in the 1992 USO, where he won his 4th round match
despite being down a break in the 5th set, did the same in his quarter-final,
did the same in his semi-final, then beat Pete Sampras in 4 in the Final.


Well done DK, but TP really??!! This was waaaay too easy for WoF.

Unless, you have something else in mind: for example winning a Slam within 3 months of having your first born kid


The AO-FO double done only twice -- Wilander 88 and Courier 92. Nadal and Federer have never done it despite taking a dozen serious attempts at it. Could it be the tougher feat?

There are so many people I'd like to thank: Borg, Nadal, Federer, TP...
