Re: There is no finish line...

Great! With today's win, Federer has a chance of finishing his 8th consecutive season with at least 80% of matches won. Fed underperformed with the first round of the 'Channel' tournaments earlier this year but he has a chance to make amends in Paris and London. Fingers crossed.

Oh and I promise to have the thread updated soon!

Re: There is no finish line...

Fed guarantees to finish the season with over 80% of matches won. This is the 8th consecutive season he has done so (an open era record).

Sampras is one behind Federer with 7. The American notched up over 80% match wins from 1993 to 1998 and he was very close in 1992, winning 79% of matches played.

Lendl would have had 10 in a row from 1980 to 1989 but he finished with 79% of matches won in 1984 so his best is 6. Nadal also has 6 consecutive seasons with over 80% of matches won (2005 onwards) and is likely to keep it up in the coming years.

I'm not sure about Jimmy Connors or John McEnroe, although I am pretty sure they do not match Roger in achieving the feat for 8 seasons in a row.

Also this is to be edited. But Connors has also 44 hard court titles ( not 43 ) .

Re: There is no finish line...

Thread updated, so stats should now be correct until the first week of 2011. I've added a couple of extra record chases (for instance the total weeks in the top 2) and unfortunately had to take out the consecutive US Open finals table as despite having match points against Djokovic, he was unfortunately not able to convert.

On the bright side, I'm not sure if this has been raised before but by Roger has the record for the most consecutive top 2 finishes at year end. Perhaps even more impressively, all 8 years are consecutive (2003 onwards). He also becomes the first man to win a Grand Slam tournament (2000 points), the World Tour Finals (1500 points), a Masters 1000 tournament, an ATP 500 tournament and an ATP 250 tournament all in the same year.

Thanks everyone for following this thread and your continuing suggestions about what should be included. I hope you look forward to tracking and hopefully counting down to more records being achieved by Roger in the 2011 season.
