Connors vs. Agassi vs. Rogie age 30 and beyond...

Connors: 14 titles (1982: US Open, 1983: Memphis, Las Vegas, Queen's Club, US Open, 1984: Memphis, La Quinta, Boca West, Los Angeles, Tokyo, 1988: Washington D.C., Toulouse; 1989: Toulouse, Tel Aviv) and 15 runners up (1983: Wembley, 1984: Rotterdam, Dallas, Wimbledon, 1985: Ft. Myers, Chicago, 1986: Ft. Myers, Queen's Club, Cincinnati, San Francisco, 1987: Memphis, Orlando, Queen's Club, 1988: Milan, Miami); Connors was in 29 finals total going 14-15 (2 grand slams and 1 grand slam runner up).

Agassi: 15 titles( 2001: Australian Open, Indian Wells, Miami, Los Angeles, 2002: Scottsdale, Miami, Rome, Los Angeles, Madrid, 2003: Australian Open, San Jose, Miami, Houston, 2004: Cincinnati, 2005: Los Angeles)and 9 runners up (2000: Washington D.C., Year End Championships, 2001: San Jose, 2002: San Jose, US Open, 2003: Year End Championships, 2004: Stockholm, 2005: Montreal, US Open); Agassi was in 24 finals total going 15-9 (2 grand slams and 2 grand slam runners up).


Rogie: 9 titles (2011: Basel, Paris, World Tour Final, 2012: Rotterdam, Dubai, Indian Wells, Madrid, Wimbledon, Cincinnati) and 2 runners up (2012: Halle, London Summer Olympics); Rogie has been in 11 finals total going 9-2 (1 grand slam title and also 1 World Tour Final title).

My take: Rogie only needs 7 more titles to have more titles at age 30 and beyond than these other two who retired at age 40 (Connors) and 36 (Agassi) had. I think he very well will get it, but no guarantee of as many grand slam titles and grand slam finals appearances overall (Connors was 2-1, Agassi 2-2, Rogie 1-0).

Conclusion: As far as overall singles titles won at age 30 and beyond, Rogie will end up having the most among these 3. I'm not even including McEnroe who retired at 33 and Lendl at age 34.

Connors vs. the other 2 is a completely different discussion. The game was so less physical back then. Between Agassi and Federer, Agassi is clearly the more impressive veteran.

Re: Connors vs. Agassi vs. Rogie age 30 and beyond...

I think when he's retired it'll be Rogie though, he'll definitely have the most titles overall at age 30 and beyond. To me it's not necessarily who has the most grand slams at age 30 and beyond, but who won the most titles and was in the most finals overall, a model of true consistency.

Man Agassi was a headcase. He should have won 10+ slams easy

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....
