ah ok.. so there were 2 Lucky losers for that one.
We'll see the trio again at the USO, + 1 Lucky loser. lol lol
He's holding Andy's spot.
oh yeah. I forgot about the 4th acolyte. With him it was a 4-men's tour.

oh yeah, there is another door watcher.
Once he sees an empty seat, he jumps in. :) :)
I think until those 3 retire, ATP slam should start in the SF: get the 3 conquistadors and randomly select a Lucky Loser to complete the schedule. No need to invite everyone. lol lol lol

On grass, it is a 3-men event.
On HC, not so much anymore:

2019 SF Miami: Federer, Isner, Shapovalov, Felix (and Novak lost in R16)
2019 SF IW: Federer, Nadal, Thiem, Raonic (and Thiem won it)
2019 SF AO: Djokovic, Nadal, Pouille, Tsitsipas
2018 SF Masters Paris: Federer, Djokovic, Thiem, Khachanov (and Khachanov won it)
2018 SF Shanghai: Djokovic, Federer, Coric, Zverev (and Coric in the final)
2018 SF US Open: Djokovic, Nadal, Del Potro, Nishikori (and DelPo in the final)
2018 SF Cinci: Djokovic, Federer, Goffin, Cilic
2018 SF Toronto: Nadal, Tsitsipas, khachanov, Anderson.

So in the last 12 months, we never had the big 3 in the Semi of a big HC event. We only had a final twice between them.

I was talking about slams. People count the number of slams.
They'd say Federer 20 slams, Djokovic 15 or whatever the number.. Nadal x slams.. .. The rest is bonus.
I read the other day those 3 share 9 of the last 10 slams or something like that.
With the ladies, there are 9 winners for the last 10 slams. So there, the 3-men's tour. :)

That was a bad idea. It was great for Margaret Court though. 24 slams.. lol lol..
didn't have to worry about losing in R1 or R2. :)
Serena would be at 50 slams with that system.

You really don't know the stats for the men, do you?? LOL :lol:

Roger 20, Nadal 18, and The Djoker 15!!

I predict Nadal will pass Roger, and The Djoker will pass them both!!

You can't be the GOAT when you're #3 in the slams!!

Roger will probably play as long as he can; Nadal is hoping his knee will hold up; and The Djoker is swinging for the fences because he's the youngest!!
