Re: There is no finish line...

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.
Sorry, I should have clarified. Connors has the record number of clay GS wins for a player who's best surface wasn't clay. That's the record I think he can break. I don't think he can pass Vilas for Clay GS wins. Connors, yes, Borg, yes, but I don't think he'll pass Vilas.
