The first 20+ differential ever? Or just first among active players?

I meant among active players. I'm not sure if it has ever been done before though. Voo?

Re: H2H Turkeys: When being a pigeon just isn't enough. 10+ differential required

Federer got now 10 turkeys, right?

Wawrinka
Roddick
Hewitt
Ljubicic
Soderling
Nieminen
Gonzalez
Youzhny
Robredo
Davydenko

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

Wawa is 1-10 so not yet a turkey, but Ferrer is 0-11 though so 10 turkeys it is.
Wawrinka, Stepanek, F. Lopez and Blake are one match away from the same status.

Roger Federer | Benoît Paire| Stanislas Wawrinka | Nick Kyrgios

Is there a thread for pigeons (couldn't find one). Tsonga is now Fed's pigeon.

Re: H2H Turkeys: When being a pigeon just isn't enough. 10+ differential required

Looks like Fed is going to hold onto the record. The previous record was 8 for Connors. Only turkey that might get off is Hewitt's 18-8.

That's not a bad record against the only other number 1s of your generation, eh?

18-8 vs Hewitt, 21-2 vs Roddick, 9-3 vs Ferrero, 10-2 vs Safin.

I think Connors was the only one more dominant, nobody else reached number 1 until Borg and Borg was 4 years younger.

Federer - Emperor of the Slams, King of Hard, Lord of the Australian Open, Lord of Wimbledon.

Nadal-Federer is so close. So so close to seeing a 16-slam GOAT as a turkey. Remarkable.

They will meet in the upcomming Clay season, so its only a matter of time before he is a turkey.
