Djokovic retired in RG 2005, RG 2006, Wimby 2007 and AO 2009. So USO is missing.

As for being the benefactor of retirements, he has had three players retire to him in USO and RG and one in AO.

All in all that's 7-4 in retirements. Rather a lot. Federer, with his longer career, has 4-0.

Re: Most coveted record

The numbers of GS is the most impressive and the second is consecutive weeks as number 1, it's one hell if a crazy record that show in the long rub how talented and special federer is.

Hug it out as long as it takes, people

Re: Most coveted record

If I could get any record for my favourite, but just the one, I'd pick most slams regardless of sex. So at least 25 slams.

So, as fans, which record would you prefer so that he can be immortalised in tennis history?
If somebody achieves GYGS (or even NCYGS) twice or more times in the open era, tha'll be the GOAT record.

Stan Wawrinka
2014 Australian Open Champion | 2014 Monte Carlo Masters Champion | 2015 French Open Champion

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
2008 Paris Masters Champion | 2014 Toronto Masters Champion

Re: Most coveted record

Most popular tennis player ever, most years with the ATP fans' award if you want an indicator ... or with the MTF award

Does MTFs biggest clown ever post about someone other than Federer. Who has such a tragic life that they dedicate themselves to ragging on one tennis player day after day? Oh that's right, Topspindoctor does. Very sad.

kneedal is playing poker, golf and fishsinh nowadays so TSD's hate for Roger comes through a lot more.

Too bad for the haters that Roger is probably playing and winning for 4 more years until 2016.

You've never heard of terms such as "The weaker sex"? I'm surprised, considering your English is so good.
