Subject: Age Of Slam Winners upon winning their 6th Grand Slam.
6th Slam:-

1) Borg 22y1m (11)
2) Nadal 22y8m (6)
3) Wilander 23y9m (7)
4) Sampras 23y11m (14)
5) Federer 24y1m (13)
6) Mcenroe 25y5m (7)
7) Edberg 26y8m (6)
8) Lendl 27y6m (8)
9) Becker 28y2m (6)
10) Agassi 29y9m (8)
11) Connors 29y10m (8)

Assuming Nadal WILL win the FO 2009 which is a 85% probability
(barring injury)
Then the list for players having won 7 slams would look like this: -

1) Nadal 22y11m (7)
2) Borg 23y (11)
3) Sampras 24y2m (14)
4) Wilander 24y3m (7)
5) Federer 24y4m (13)
6) Mcenroe 25y8m (7)
7) Lendl 28y10m (8)
8) Agassi 30y9m (8)
9) Connors 30y10m (8)

Nadal will be 23 years and 3 days old on 7th June this year (date of
FO final).
Borg was 23 years and 5 days old on 11th June 1979 (date of FO final)

Nadal will shade it by two days if he wins ... though the final is a
few days earlier compared to 1979 due to the calendar

Nadal's birthday is June 3, so if the final is June 7, he will be 23
years and 4 days... Of course, using the Croatian calendar he is 24...

Dumb or just trolling?
Hard to guess.

Age is of course always the same, as the time is constant. It's just matter
of expression, "completed years" or "running year".
Simple question: Age? - in some languages would be understood as a request
to state completed years.
"Age?" - in some other cases/languages means you're required to state your
current year of life.

Hope it makes it a bit more clear, even though I am sceptic about your
capabilities on this one.


Stating Nadal's age as "22" when he won his 6th slam is just as wrong/right
stating his age "23".
Because he was 22 years, 10 months 29 days old or something like that.

Of course, in english newsgroup we should use the known method, but I don't
see how can you claim one system having more sense than the other one and
makin mockery of the one you don't understand.

Of course you know very well that when this age thing came up, I was
the only one here who understood this was a cultural thing, and didn't
make fun of it. Some sense of humour would be nice sometimes, look at
your hero, he has that (rather selectively, but sometimes).

Hey I didn't make fun of him either!
