- Enqvist announced retirement so he left the top 10. He retired with an honourable winning percentage of 73,08% in finals. Safin replaces him in the 'hall of fame'.

- Nadal's winning percentage in finals only gets better and better, approaching the incredible 90% mark.

- Following his losses to Nadal in Dubai and Monte Carlo, Federer's percentage decreased a bit, but he maintains the 3rd place nonetheless. Same with Hewitt who stayed in the top 10 even after losing to Murray in San Jose and to Blake in Las Vegas.

- Fish improved his record in finals by winning Houston, so he left the bothersome 2nd spot in the 'hall of shame' and now occupies the 8th place.

Amazing stat on Nadal given he was winning those finals as a 18/19 year old

One more update heading into Roland Garros. Davydenko loses the runner-up spot to Federer after losing the final at Estoril, but manages to stay in the top 5 by winning the Poertschach tournament. ToJo and Schalken are now sharing the #3 spot. Nadal is two finals away from achieving the incredible 90% mark.

In the bottom table, Stepanek becomes the new member of the 'hall of shame' by losing to Robredo in the TMS Hamburg final, appearing at equal #5. Grosjean, Fish and Puerta move one spot down each, kicking El Aynaoui off the list, at least for now.

Nadal has lost 2 finals in his career - I know one was in 2004 in Auckland against Hrbaty, can someone just remind me the other loss? I've drawn a blank :scratch:

Anyone else as surprised as I am to see Schalken in there?

Update heading into Wimbledon.

Nadal is one final away from reaching 90%. :eek: Federer dropped to 5th after losing one more final to Nadal at Roland Garros, even though he made it up by winning Halle. Hewitt increased his percentage by winning his first final (Queen's) in 18 months after 4 failed attempts, but stays at 9th nevertheless.

Ancic won his second title at St. Hertogenbosch, improving his percentage and dropping to 9th in the hall of shame.

He may not have many winning moments, but he chooses them well. ;) Seriously though, most of his final wins are against good but not great players - twice in a row in Rosmalen against Clement, for example, who has always been his pigeon, plus other "solid" baseliners like Lapentti, Nieminen and Schuettler.

Although now that I've actually done some checking... believe it or not, he has beaten both Rios and Haas in finals (Boston 97 and Auckland 99). I take back what I said!

great interesting thread, good work Shotgun Blues

We'll see tomorrow if Federer is able to stop Rafa from reaching the 90% mark.

- Federer prevents Nadal from reaching 90% by winning the final in Wimbledon. Federer moves back to 2nd place, while Nadal keeps the lead although with a decrease in his percentage.

- Davydenko drops to 7th after his loss to Robredo in Bastad.

- Roddick stayed at 8th despite the loss to Blake in Indianapolis.

- Calleri improved his bad record in finals by defeating Chela in Kitzbuhel. He no longer shares the 2nd worst place with Volandri. He now shares the 8th worst place with Ancic.

gaudio had an interesting record until he lost 4 finals in a road.

Done a final update for the 2006 season.

Davydenko keeps improving and has built a very impressive record in finals this season.

Also general improvement has been sensed in the 'bottom 10' table, with Calleri, Volandri and Fish all winning their second titles this season. The most notable improvement though has been the one of Ancic, winning two titles in 2006 and disappearing from the list. On the flipside, Nieminen appears now at second place following his defeat to Blake in Stockholm.

01-29-2007, 04:09 AM
If you make the same statistics with semifinals I think that Nalbandian and González will be the bottom 2 (at least in 2006 they lost a lot of SF specially in GS and MS)

With Malisse winning both of the finals he's played this season as of yet (Chennai and Delray Beach), he considerably improved his record and is no longer the active player with the worst winning percentage in ATP finals. The title now is shared by Nieminen and Melzer (because of his loss to Hewitt in Las Vegas).

On the top 10 list, the only major change was Koubek being kicked off the list following his loss to Malisse in Chennai, and being replaced by Safin.

Nadal - 25 Finals 21 Wins (84%)

Federer - 62 Finals 48 Wins (77.42%)

Update :

Nadal 27 finals (22 win 5 loss) = 81.48%

Updated on the first page.

Major changes:
- Davydenko is back at #2 after Federer lost the finals in Monte Carlo and Roland Garros.
- Djokovic up to #4 after wins in Miami and Estoril.
- Schalken announced retirement so he drops out of the list. :sad:
- Monfils makes the bottom 10 list after losing his fourth consecutive final at Poertschach. :p

Updated after almost a year. :eek:

Where's Kiefer in the bottom 10? Did he win too many finals when he was very young? He is 0-10 in finals since 2001 :lol:

I just checked, he was 6-3 in finals before 2001.

07-27-2008, 09:39 PM
I checked and Kiefer is #19 from bottom to top (and coming down :lol:). Given that he's played many finals already, he'd have to lose something like four or five more finals to show up at the list. ;)

08-03-2009, 12:02 AM
Updated after a year!

Btw, impressive how many finals Djokovic lost in the past 12 months, now he's gone of the top 10 list.
