Trivia: Last man to jump the net after winning a slam?
Not sure what category this goes in, but I was wondering, who was the last man to jump over the net after winning a slam final?

Players used to do it ALL the time. And I think Edberg may have done it after winning the 92 USO. But that was over 20 years ago, and you never see it anymore.

Just curious (if anyone really cares). Thought it was a fun trivia question.

Cheers

The winner should do it this year, then we'll have our answer. Wink

The "fall backwards" onto the floor move seems to have taken precedence TM. It's got a bit boring now, so some net jumping would be good to see. Smile

OK, not "net-jumping," but when Rafa won the career slam over Djokovic in 2010, Nole walked around the net to give a nice hug that wasn't across the net. But, yes...I'd like to see a little net-jumping.

None of the big 4 have ever done it and I know Del Potro didn't either. I think we'd have to go back quite a few years to find the last guy to do it.

If Raonic wins the US Open, he'll hug the net.
