Sets and Games Played To Win Grand Slams (Open Era)

Created as a direct result of this thread. Here are the number of sets played en route to each Open Era singles Grand Slam title.

The problem with this data set is that before the early 1980s there was little consistency in the tournament structure (best of 3/best of 5 in early rounds, byes for top seeds, tie-breaker sets) so the earlier data is not directly comparable to the more recent data. Nevertheless, it is presented here in its entireity.

A plus indicates how many incomplete sets were played, i.e. there was a retirement or default during at least one of the matches.

Re: Sets Played To Win Grand Slams (Open Era)

At least, not in terms of the amount of games played to take away the trophy! From some statistics I compiled today:

- The most games played to win a grand slam tournament in the open era is 313 by Jan Kodes at Wimbledon in 1973.

- The fewest games played to win a grand slam tournament in the open era is 145 by Ken Rosewall at the Australian Open in 1972.

- The most games played to win a grand slam tournament in the open era with 7 best-of-5-sets rounds with tiebreakers at 6 games all is 299 by Goran Ivanisevic at Wimbledon in 2001.

- The fewest games played to win a grand slam tournament in the open era with 7 best-of-5-sets rounds with tiebreakers at 6 games all is 150 by John McEnroe at the US Open in 1979, who was the beneficiary of both a retirement and a walk-over.

- The fewest games played to win a grand slam tournament in the open era with 7 best-of-5-sets rounds with tiebreakers at 6 games all without benefitting from any retirements or walk-overs is 159 by Bjorn Borg at the French Open in 1978.

- For comparison, the most games played in a single match is 183 (Isner-Mahut at Wimbledon, 2010).
