Best 5 Set Records Active Players Only. Chardy leads

This might be useless to some people, but I have decided to post some of the best current 5 set records.

The criteria that I have used is that they have played a minimum of 10 5 setters and they have a 60 per cent or better winning percentage.


Code:
Rank:		Win	Loss	Percentage

Robredo     	13	4	76.47
Nadal		16	5	76.19
Muller		9	3	75.00
Djokovic	18	7	72.00
Kohlschreiber 	14	6	70.00
Murray		14	6	70.00
Dolgopolov	7	3	70.00
Cilic 		16	7	69.57
Tipsarevic	18	8	69.23
F.Lopez		17	8	68.00
Ferrer		18	9	66.67
Berdych		16	8	66.67
Baghdatis	12	6	66.67
Istomin		8	4	66.67
Nieminen	17	9	65.38
Monfils		11	6	64.71
Tsonga		9	5	64.29
Simon		12	7	63.16
Hewitt		31	19	62.00
Tursunov	11	7	61.11
Youzhny		18	12	60.00
Stakhovsky	6	4	60.00


If there are any other current players that I have missed out, post away but they must have played at least 10 5 setters and have 60 % or better winning ratio.

Re: Best 5 Set Records

Sampras deserves a mention with a 33-15 record

Re: Best 5 Set Records

Yes, it's an outstanding record but he has retired and this was done for players currently.

On that record he would be equal with Lapentti and El Ayanoui, but because he won more matches he would have been placed first of that group.

Re: Best 5 Set Records

Thanks for that Azza, I knew there would be a few that I would forget.

I have made the adjustment and he moves the great Koubek down to number three.

Re: Best 5 Set Records

The Poo has actually won 10 out of 11 of his last 5 set matches, that is very impressive.

Yes it is especially considering he has a reputation for being mentally fragile

Re: Best 5 Set Records

Well like any competitors in any event they need warm up and this will be no different. The points scale is fair, and I will have to check again the countback rules, but I think we agreed on these.

Speaking of past players I don't think anyone will beat this great 5 set record. The underrated Bjorn Borg 23-4 and with a winning percentage of 85.18, that is magnificent.

Yes Borg was amazing, I wish he did not retire so early, if he had played for another 5-6 years I don't think there would be any debates about the "best player of all time".

Re: Best 5 Set Records

It was sad that he retired so early, but if his heart wasn't in it, then that was the best for him. If he played for another 3 years, then he might have won a US Open, I think he definitely could have won 2 more FOs.

He is truly respected and revered in Sweden and especially by Guga ( the bowing at the FO ceremony) and Roger worships him as well.

I mean if it wasn't him the world wouldn't have seen Edberg, Wilander or the other Swedish players. Tennis used to be a snobby, yuppie sport in Sweden until he came along, the success and the federation built excellent tennis centres throughout the country to inspire the next generation.

The amazing thing is that Borg started playing tennis almost by accident

Re: Best 5 Set Records

Yes, that is how some of the best stories happen. I wonder if he ever beat the wall that he used to hit up against?
