looking at mens tennis best runs in grand slam:
laver won 5 of 6 between 69 & 69 but was shortchanged because most of his career pros could not compete in open events. he won 5 of 6 as an amateur between 61 & 62 prior to turning pro.
borg won 7 of 13 between 77 & 80
lendl won 5 of 8 between 85 & 87
sampras won 6 of 12 between 93 & 95
federer won 11 of 16 between 04 & 07
nadal won 7 of 13 between 08 & 11
djokovic won 6 of 8 between 14 & 16
djokovic is a game from getting bounced. im guessing its his serve. they are coming back from a rain delay. even so he'd have to win a tiebreaker against a big server to take it to a fifth set.
djokovic ousted. had won the previous four grand slams. opens things up a little for federer who would have faced him in a semifinal matchup. murray at #2 seed had his way eased when #4 wawrinka lost a round earlier.
