2nd and 3rd questions:
 
2. what do lendl and agassi have in common?
 
3. and what do they dont have in common as far as slams go?

2. Equal amount of slams for one, eight each. Also both managed almost 50 match wins in all four slams, something of which they were quite alone until recently. Plus US Open were clearly the best slam for both.

3. Agassi won all four on different surfaces, Lendl only three and never on grass. Agassi had a positive stat in finals, winning more than he lost, Lendl did not. Plus Lendl had a great series of consecutive SFs reached and consecutive finals in one slam, Agassi did neither.

Yes, true. They made really a lot of finals. 15 for Agassi, 19 for Lendl. Quite amazing stuff.

Question 1 is beyond me, though. My first thought was Alberto Berasategui but I don't have much faith in this guess...

that was the 6 foot 2, 170 pound spanish clay court warrior who bagged 2 straight french open crowns.
 
he dished out deadly topspin off both wings. sergi bruguera took home rg crowns in 1993 and 1994.

Ah yes, Bruguera, one of my favourites at the time. He actually played one of those RG finals against Berasategui.

fred perry beat gottfried von cramm in the 1935 RG final.


gottfried von cramm was the wealthy tennis player who actually lived in a magnificent castle.

 
question: who defeated fred perry at 1936 RG final?

Bunny Austin? Or was it Buddy Austin? Either way it's probably wrong.

gottfried got him back in 1936.
 
he fried fed perry`s ass. it was a 5 setter.
 
gottfried fried him 6-0 in the first set and then did the samething to him in the 5th set.
