Federer first ever to win 90 matches in a single season?

Does anyone know if that's actually the case and who's second, third ... in this statistic?

Re: Federer first ever to win 90 matches in a single season?

Lendl was the last one to do it, so it's been a while. But I don't know the figures. NYCtennisfan, Voo de Mar, Sjengster...?

Re: Federer first ever to win 90 matches in a single season?

Nope. Lendl has done it multiple times (80-82--100+ wins twice), Connors did it twice, Vilas did it, and JMac did it once.

However, Connors is the only one to have ever won 90+ matches and lost i the single digits when he went 90-9 in 1976. Fed is now the second person.

Amazing that Lendl didn't win a major in those years with that many wins!

Indeed. He couldn't beat Jmac, Connors, Borg in the big matches.

In fact, when he went on his 18 finals in a row streak, it was between the USO and Roland Garros. Amazing that he could play so much, but a lot of it was when he wasn't playing JMAC or Connors.

Re: Federer first ever to win 90 matches in a single season?

I think a more interesting stat would be, who won 90+ matches with the LEAST amount of tournaments played.
