    Who owns each Major, worth changing the name of the trophy because of their dominance? Who do you think should have the honor and why? (Off the top of my head)

    Australian Open for the men is owned by Novak "Nole" Djokovic: Not only winning 5 so far, and taking 3 in a row! No one's done that in the Open era!

    For the ladies, I guess you should give it to Margaret Smith Court, but for many years, the top players in the world didn't even bother going "down under" so she picked up an easy 11 titles with a huge psychological edge over Evonne Goolagong!
    ----------------
    French Open was owned by Bjorn Borg since the 80's with 6 titles, but Rafa Nadal has overtaken him with 9 titles

    For the Ladies, Chris Evert is Queen of clay with 7 titles!
    ----------------
    Wimbledon had Bjorn Borg as the apparent King, but Roger Federer not only took 5 straight, he has 2 more titles to have a total of 7!

    Without a doubt Martina Navratilova reigns supreme on grass taking 9 singles titles: 5 straight ('82-'87) often without losing a set!
    ----------------
    US Open had several dominant figures with McEnroe, Connors winning on 3 surfaces, and Lendl getting to 8 straight finals, but again Roger Federer dominated with 5 straight titles! This is why he's the GOAT with 1 FO & 4 AO's!

    I guess you have to rename the trophy to Chris Evert due to her winning 6 titles on 2 surfaces: 4 on clay and 2 on HC!

    Wimbledon men:  Sampras

    U.S. Open men:  Federer

    Two named the Federer Cup would be confusing.   :scratch:

    Djoker is moving into the territory of owning the AO naming rights.

    The French... Nadal has secured it lock, stock and barrel.

    I think No1e's cunning plan is to win some more Wimbledons

    I don't think Nole will enter the realms of Sampras and Federer at Wimbledon.  The AO looks like it might have his name on though.

    Does Murray now own the Olympics?

    Nobody owns the Olympics. I liked Andy's quote of earlier in the week, when asked about "defending" the Olympic gold. He said, "I'm not defending it. No one can take (the 2012 one) away from me." No one is going to rename swimming medals for Michael Phelps. Likewise, I think it's goofy to think any Major title should be named for the person who has won it a lot.
