Re: All-time Open Era Grand Slam wins

That is really surprising when you think about it. Connors plays for 20+ years and wins eight, Sampras plays for a much shorter time and wins 14, and still Connors has more wins pr average.
It's one of the reasons why Connors is vastly underrated in the GOAT discussions. In 35 consecutive slams entered, he fell short of the QF only once.

Federer has an amazing record of 33/33 slams, but, still has a little ways to go to break Connor's record. Two more slam QFs will do it.

Kevin Curren has the honor of being the only man in 35 slams entered to defeat Jimmy Connors before the QF. On court 2 the 'Graveyard of champions'.

Federer - Emperor of the Slams, King of Hard, King of Grass, Lord of the Australian Open, Lord of Wimbledon.
