Yeahh. I'll revert my thread back to a topic index.
If you two can produce a completed stats / records / hall of fame type thread that would be incredible.
Of course, I would do anything I can to contribute.
I've started a little work on a thread like that, but I realise it's going to take a fair bit of time before I get it finished. However, I may need a bit of help with jazzing it up a bit with graphics like in Rafa's thread
. Anyone think they might be able to be of assistance?
It will be a sad day when Federer retires, but when the inevitable happens, it is his records that will be his legacy. As I update the thread in my signature (countdown to records he still could achieve) it fills me with a little sadness that when his playing days are over, all that will remain on that page will be a reminder of potential targets that he fell just short of.
So in its place, the aim is to create a sort of 'one stop shop' for statistical info on his storied tennis playing career. Being a keen statistician and historian of the game, I have taken up a bit of a longer term project to produce what I hope will be an exhaustive and definitive analysis of Federer's entire career in terms of numbers and career achievements. I know it's a bit ambitious and I myself am constrained for time, so even if it takes a few months to complete I hope it will be a fitting tribute to the champion that he is.
