After those, the only ones that are left are pretty much all of Connor's records, time spent both total and consecutive in the top 4, top 5, top 10, total wins, total wins on Grass, GS wins on Grass, GS wins on Clay, total titles.
Pretty sure Connors' doesn't have that one. Guillermo Vilas has 75, ahead of Borg 63, then Connors 59 and Fed in 4th with 54. Vilas used to have 73, btw. His Wiki total in FO has been moved up from 56 to 58, after is was discovered RG 1972 did not have a 64-man draw as ATP claims but as 256-man draw.
