An Exclusive List
David has another reason to be proud. In forty years (since the open era in 1968) only 19 tennis players were able to reach the semi-finals in the four Grand Slams: Australian Open (flexi cushion), Roland Garros (clay), Wimbledon (grass) and US Open (Hard). He is part of this list together with great legends of tennis like Rod Laver, Ivan Lendl, Jimmy Connors, Miloslav Mecir, Stefan Edberg, Boris Becker, Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic. The great accomplishment of reaching the semis in the four “Majors” is that it requires great ability to adjust one’s game to the different surfaces, besides it being a tiring two-week tournament, with five-set matches and against the best players in the world. David has been the only Argentine player to ever achieve this.
