Oh, I remember this match like it happened yesterday!! One of my favorite moments in all of Wimbly history (right up there with Kraijeck winning in 96 and Michel's epic match this year).

When did he start wearing bandanas?

now that was pretty complete. thanks, mrs. b! so when does his autobiography get released? ;)

Mrs. B
11-22-2002, 12:41 PM
LOL @ Beat. He's only 21 and he has to win a few Slams first then it will be a bestseller in CH! ;)

RogiFan
11-22-2002, 02:06 PM
:) That's funny Beat! Hi Mrs. B. and Doris! A suitably dull grey Nov. day out there! And I'm doing laundry -- how exciting! Yeah and I'm supposed to be updating my resume... yuk! We need a little Rogi as our ray of sunshine! Un rayo de sol, la, la, la... [a lyric from a Spanish song from Sex and Lucia film]!;)

Lily
11-22-2002, 08:28 PM
wonderful thread, Mrs. B! Thanks :)

and lets always hope that he keeps his beautiful brown hair :angel:

Beat, Mrs. B is right. Rogi has to win at least 1 slam first (maybe 2), then someone can write a book on him like someone did on Guga. And, very important, they have to also write it in english cause Rogi fans are world wide! :)

Mrs. B
11-22-2002, 09:28 PM
Thanks, Lily!

Hope you'll continue adding to this thread when i'm gone. You'll never know, he might even win the AO!!!

And keep those poems coming too, eh? :)

RogiFan

No, we are talking about consecutive wins. He played Queens in between those, and lost. That breaks the consecutive win cycle, no?

Jazzy

anyways, he also zipped past McEnroe who won 23 consecutive wins on grass aswell!

I became a fan of Roger's when I saw him play the final of Miami vs Agassi. I was really impressed with his game, but at the time I suppose he was too inconsistent and maybe not mature enough to beat Agassi.

I never followed him closely though until he beat Sampras at Wimbledon. I used to feel about Roger the way I feel about Safin; so much talent, but total headcases. Now I'm so proud of his achievements. He really living up to his potential (unlike Safin) and although men's tennis may never be 'dominated' like Pete did, Roger has the potential to still outshine the others.

He just became the fastest man to get 50 wins in a year ever since Lendl did the same back in 89.

Federer Continues on Historical Roll

After his dominating performance at the US Open, Roger Federer Roger Federer continues to write his name into the history books after clinching his 10 th title of the season at the Thailand Open in Bangkok today. By defeating Andy Roddick 6-4, 6-0 in the final of the Thailand Open, Federer becomes the first player to win 10 titles in a season since Thomas Muster won 12 in 1995. He also won his 12 th straight final, joining Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe as the only players to achieve that feat in the past 25 years.

Since the beginning of 2003, Federer has won a stunning 17 titles. He also has won 18 consecutive matches against Top 10 players, including 13 in 2004.

He now turns his focus to creating more history at the upcoming ATP Masters Series events in Madrid and Paris. At ATP Masters Madrid (starting October 18) and the BNP Paribas Masters in Paris (starting November 1), Federer will strive to become the first player to win four ATP Masters Series titles in the one year since the premier series was established in 1990. After winning his third Grand Slam title of the season at the US Open, it was announced that Federer had won the INDESIT ATP 2004 Race, marking the earliest a player had ever locked up the year-end World No. 1 title.

Here is a statistical look at Federer's outstanding season on the 2004 ATP circuit:

Hi Daniel, this week is week 39 at number one for Roger, but tenniscorner.net calculates the rankings ahead of time, and they know that he can't lose it until the end of the Aussie Open, which is why they have put 51 weeks (should be 52 I think).

But he's getting close to Edberg, then catching Hewitt, I hope :)

In last two years has compiled a 18-2 record in finals after going 4-6 previous three years...Became first player since Mats Wilander in 1988 to win three Grand Slam titles in a season and fourth player overall in Open Era to win at least three in a year (Connors won three in 1974, Laver won four in 1969)…Became first player in Open Era to win his first four Grand Slam finals...

Roger Federer capped one of the most dominant seasons in tennis history when he defeated Lleyton Hewitt 6-3, 6-2 to win his second consecutive Tennis Masters Cup title in Houston. The Swiss World No. 1 won his 11th title of a remarkable season which included three Grand Slam titles and three ATP Masters Series titles. Federer's win was his 13th straight victory in a final - an Open Era record - and his 23rd consecutive match win against a Top 10 opponent. Federer defeated Hewitt, who finishes the year at No.3, for the sixth consecutive time this season. Federer collects $1.52 million and passes $6 million prize money for the year.

His staggering statistics included a 18-0 record against Top 10 opponents (23-0 going back to TMC in Houston), defeating every member of current Top 10...He also went 11-0 in singles finals (13-0 going back to 2003) and joined Hall-of-Famers Borg and McEnroe to win 12 straight finals in last 25 years… He's broken the record.

Ranked among Top 10 in several serving categories -- No. 1 in second serve points won (57%) No. 2 in break points saved (72%), No. 3 in service games won (91%), No. 4 in first serve points won (78%) and No. 8 in aces (517)…In addition to his overall serving dominance, he posted 12 bagel sets won (five against Hewitt) and 23 'bread sticks' (6-1 sets won).

Became first player to win multiple titles on clay, grass and hard courts in a season and first since Borg in 1979 to win consecutive titles on those surfaces…Compiled winning streaks of 10-more four different times, including a career-best 23 in a row from June 7-August 1...

Opened season at Australian Open and dropped only two sets while posting victories over Hewitt (4th), Nalbandian (QF), Ferrero (SF) and Safin (F)…Became No. 1 afterwards for first time on Feb. 2 and clinched top spot earliest ever on Sept. 13 after winning first US Open crown (d. Hewitt)…

Lost first match of year to Henman in QF of Rotterdam on Feb. 20…Won next two outings in Dubai (d. Lopez) and ATP Masters Series Indian Wells (d. Henman)…In May, turned in most impressive tournament on clay at AMS Hamburg where he defeated Gaudio (1st), Gonzalez (3rd), Moya (QF), Hewitt (SF) and Coria (F)…His only Grand Slam loss came to Kuerten in 3rd RD at Roland Garros…Then reeled off four consecutive titles -- repeat efforts in Halle (d. Fish) and Wimbledon (d. Roddick), his first Swiss title in Gstaad (d. Andreev) and AMS Toronto (d. Roddick)…

Made his fifth US Open appearance and came away with title, defeating Agassi (QF), Henman (SF) and Hewitt (F)…

After a two-week break, captured title in Bangkok (d. Roddick) to become first player since Muster (12) in 1995 to win at least 11 titles…

What a year!

11 titles, including 3 slams, 3 TMS titles, and now the TMC title.

- 74-6 record this year.
- 17-match win streak.
- 6-match win streak vs Hewitt.
- 18-0 perfect record against top-10 opponents this year, 23-0 record dating back to last year's TMC.
- 13 straight wins in finals.
- 13-1 lifetime record at the TMC.

Fed has really distanced himself from the rest of the pack of "New Balls". He almost lapped the field. When he is "in the zone", he's near invincible.

Fed is destined for true greatness, although some would say he has already achieved some of it.

Yay!

thanks for these stast to the posters on GM :)

Borg was my favorite player in 70s-80s. Roger remains me of him sometimes, in terms of demeanor on the court. 41 wins are just unbelievable :angel:

If Roger wins Wimby this year, his streak will be 36 wins, very close to Borg's. :D

Borg was one of the greatest of all time and would have made unbreakable records if he didn't retired so early...but you're right, of those tennisplayer today there's only Roger who can accomplish this 41 record and 5 Wimbley titles in a row! It's still a long way to go though :)

Richard Sears, USA - 7
William Renshaw, GBR - 7
Anthony Wilding, NZL - 6
Jack Crawford, AUS - 6
Roger Federer, SUI - 5
Tony Trabert, USA - 5

Roger is first man in Open Era to win first 5 GS Finals; only the 2nd man, post WW, to win his first 5 GS Finals. Talk about history being made. The streaks and records keep on pilling up.

Jimmy Connors, Rod Laver and Mats Wilander. What do these three men have in common?

They all won at least three Slams in a year. And the following year, they did not win even a single Slam.

Thankfully, Roger will NOT join their group. Roger becomes the first man to win at least three slams in a year, and win at least one the following year.

Being a tennis history buff that he is, I am sure Rogi himself is aware of this fact. I am sure this fact burdened him more and more when he failed to win AO & FO this year. No wonder he looked so glad when he finally won Wimbly :D Hopefully now he will be able to breath much easier. He has fulfilled half his goal for this year.

Wimbledon-Federer marches past Borg's record

(adds quotes)

By Martyn Herman

LONDON, June 27 (Reuters) - World number one Roger Federer broke Bjorn Borg's record grasscourt winning sequence on Tuesday when he completed a dazzling 6-3 6-2 6-2 first round victory over Frenchman Richard Gasquet.




Walking on to Centre Court wearing a dashing cream blazer emblazoned with his name, Federer raced to his 42nd consecutive victory on the surface, allowing the dangerous Gasquet just two games on the resumption after Monday's rain stoppage.

Federer, who equalled Borg's run of 41 when he beat Czech Tomas Berdych in the Halle final earlier this month, said he was more happy with his form than yet another statistic.

"Any streak is nice and I'm still going, hopefully I can make it last longer," said the 24-year-old who racked up 35 winners against the free-swinging Gasquet, one of only four players to beat him in 2005.

"He's a big talent on any surface and it's one of the toughest draws I've had and to come up and play so well, I'm very happy, especially over two days."


Congratulations Roger :worship: :kiss:

Among other landmarks, today's match marked the first time since 1952 (Frank Sedgman and Jaroslav Drobny) that the same men have contested the French Open and Wimbledon finals back-to-back.

Federer is the first man since Fred Stolle, in 1965, to reach five straight Grand Slam finals. His record of consecutive grass-court wins stands at 48, and he aimed to become the first Wimbledon winner without losing a set since Borg in 1976.

The commentator during yesterday's match mentioned this during the broadcast, so I'm not sure how accurate this is:

Of all the men who has at least 8 Grand Slam titles, Roger has won his 8th at the second fastest rate... next only to Bjorn Borg who won his 8th GS title at a faster pace. So for those who are wondering if Roger is on pace to beat Pete Sampras's record, yes he is still very much on pace.

That's right. He is next to Borg. Borg won his 8th in the 20th GS tournament he played :eek: and Roger, 29. Next to him, Sampras, 30. Sampras won 7 GS by his 25th birthday while Roger, 8. :D

Federer by the numbers
133: Consecutive weeks as the top-ranked player on the ATP Tour, the third-longest consecutive streak behind Jimmy Connors (160) and Ivan Lendl (157).

54: Consecutive matches won in North America. Federer's last loss on the continent was to Dominik Hrbaty in the first round here on Aug. 3, 2004.

17: Consecutive finals reached in tournaments. Providing he gets to the final this weekend in Cincinnati, he could tie Ivan Lendl's record .

7: Titles won this year, including two Grand Slams. Through Friday, Federer's match record is 62-4, including 34-1 on hard courts.

5: Straight Grand Slam finals reached. The last player to accomplish that feat was Fred Stolle in 1964-65.

Roger Federer up to 3rd on all-time money list

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After winning in Toronto this past weekend, Roger has overtaken Boris Becker to take 3rd place on the all-time money list, behind Agassi and Sampras.

Surely in a few years Federer will be the first player to top $50 million in career prize money.

Here are the current top ten.

1. P Sampras
$43,280,489

2. A Agassi
$31,039,525

3. R Federer $25,131,458

4. B Becker
$25,080,956

5. Y Kafelnikov
$23,883,797

6. I Lendl
$21,262,417

7. S Edberg
$20,630,941

8.G Ivanisevic
$19,876,579

9. M Chang
$19,145,632

10. L Hewitt
$16,469,137

Seeing all of those names in the top 10 brings back memories and makes you realize that Pete did have alot of competition, but I honestly can't see anybody on this list coming even close to Federer in quality and consistency of play.

-He has become the first man ever to win the Wimbledon and U.S. Open double combo three times in a row!

-this is the earliest any player has ever secured the year end #1 ranking and Roger has done it. The only other person to secure the year end #1 ranking right after the U.S. Open before Roger was Roger himself in 2004.

-Roger has won 9 grand slam singels titles putting himself ahead of players like Agassi, Lendl and Connors who have 8 a piece.

-In terms of progress at the same respective times of their carreers, Roger is ahead of Pete Sampras who at the same age by winning the 1996 U.S. Open secured his 8th grand slam singles title.

-Roger has become the first man in the open Era since Rod Laver to reach all four grand slam finals in one calendar year.
