Active Players' Davis Cup Singles Records

I'll post this in the statistics forum as well, but I thought it might make for interesting reading. I decided to include players who are active but don't still play DC such as Agassi, and while Kafelnikov may or may not be retired (is that official or what? I'm losing track of his decisions) his is also a remarkable record, so it's down here.

Yevgeny Kafelnikov: 31-16
Andre Agassi: 30-5 (one of which five, out of interest, was a retirement against Killer Cahill himself back in 1990)
Goran Ivanisevic: 28-9
Wayne Ferreira: 28-10
Marcelo Rios: 25-10
Marc Rosset: 24-13
Lleyton Hewitt: 23-5 (not bad that one, considering his age, and he'll break the Aussie record this weekend presumably)
Tim Henman: 23-7
Younes El Aynaoui: 21-9
Andrei Pavel: 21-9 (a bit of a surprise, but he's been around ten years)
Gustavo Kuerten: 18-10
Carlos Moya: 16-6
Roger Federer: 15-6
Jiri Novak: 14-4
Greg Rusedski: 14-8
Gaston Gaudio: 13-3 (was 13-0, but all in Argentina against less than challenging opposition; and his three horrendous defeats since suggest that he isn't one to rely on when you're playing away)
Jonas Bjorkman: 13-7
Sebastien Grosjean: 13-7
Mark Philippoussis: 13-7
Thomas Enqvist: 13-9
Tommy Haas: 12-1 (famously, the best DC record out there in recent times; only loss in straight sets to Kafelnikov, showing that the Russian really was his nemesis)
Alex Corretja: 12-3
Nicolas Escude: 11-2 (completely unbeatable in 2001, until his streak was brought to an end in 2002 by Novak)
Juan Carlos Ferrero: 11-5 (three straight losses have lessened this record somewhat)
Todd Martin: 11-8
Marat Safin: 11-10
