Wade also had four slam doubles titles against Mandlikova's one. But 55 total singles titles vs 27 is a pretty big gap in the open era.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
