It is crazy how many titles Todd and Frederico won, but its even crazier when you look at all the other tables world championships too. Since 2004 a total of 31 Singles World Championships trophies have been given out. Rob Atha has one, Gilles Perrin has one, Tony Spredeman has one, François Cheuret has one, Billy Pappas has 4 of them... Frederico has the other 23.
Frederico and Todd were the #6 seed at this years Hall of Fame lol - they should get #1 seed for life at any tournament they ever go to.
Also in the 7 multi-table (where players each choose a home table in a tournament) Worlds, Frederico has won 5 of 7.
Johnny Horton's 2001 singles final against Rob Mares is epic.
Now that I'm thinking about it I think Sam/Ben still have my 2001 worlds DVD
What about Moya?

I might have missed one or two.
And we can't forget David Ahn the 2010 Pro Am World Champion
A truly talented player on this list of champions is Tony Bacon.In my view,he had the smoothest and the most effortless pull shot I have ever seen.
More important than his undeniable abilities,however,
is the kind of person he is.After he eliminated me in
open singles in 1985,I was pretty disappointed.Shortly
after,I was watching another match and someone walked up
on my left side.It was Tony Bacon.He tapped me on the shoulder and said,"I just wanted you to know,I really thought you had me beat there."
I was appreciative of his comments,and in retrospect,I am more impressed with his humility,something not often found in such a talent.
P.S.Our match was a battle.If memory serves,it went 5 games.At one point during the match,a pro named Lou Salkind(sp?) was watching in the stadium seating.Before I shot one of my pull shots during the match,I looked up and saw him watching.Tony gave me a Two bar lead defense.One second before I shot,Tony pushed his two bar to the wall.No matter.I went around.Twice.After the first time I did it,I looked up at Salkind again.He wasn't smiling as he had been before I shot.
Bacon is the shizzit, a true dynamo master. Todd and Rico dominate tornado doubles in general, such a dOminate team in a field where, honestly, Nobody else currently stands a chance overall. I can't think of a team that is a contender..
Bacon is a cool guy but, be warned, in Vegas you can lose him behind a bank of slot machines. I know, I did.
I forgot to post what I came her to post. Clearly it is some anti-Canadian thing since you'll notice they left my name out from when I won doubles in 2004,
Was that semi pro or pro dubs Tim?
