Thanks for posting all that information, it was fascinating to read. Do you know if the wins are all live rubbers, or do they include wins in dead rubbers, too? Thank you.

Hey Socket, it's maybe a stupid question, but who is the player in your avatar?? *embarressed* lol

It's Lleyton Hewitt, but I can understand why you can't recognize him. I didn't at first, either. :cool:

Yep, it includes wins in dead rubbers as well. If I included doubles alongside singles wins, Kafelnikov would be ahead of the rest by some margin with 44 DC victories.

Thanks, Sjengster!

I guess you cannot include somebody who plays singles only in Davis Cup, and still can beat anybody below top-50 in Davis Cup .. I am of course talking about Leander Paes (IND) who has 69-29 Davis Cup records and is 11th alltime in Davis Cup history, and is the "winningest" active player in Davis Cup in the world.

And he still keeps on winning 3 matches in every zonal tie and keeps on putting India into the WG playoffs, in which India keeps on not getting seeded because ITF doesn't care for their own Davis Cup ranks, and keeps on going away drawing normally against the toughest teams (SWE, USA, AUS and NED away in four consecutive years) .. But for Leander, there would be no India anywhere to be seen.

Paes has played 98 matches in 34 ties, which is the highest number of matches per Davis Cup, of anybody who played more than 10 ties or so ..

Just something to add to the dicussion. There are some guys out there like Paes and Nestor of Canada who seem to live for just Davis Cup ..

Leander's record is quite an accomplishment! But I can see the point in keeping the zonal statistics separate from the rest.

David Nalbandian 18-3 (8-1 in doubles, 10-2 in singles, losing against beck-mertinak away, safin and ljubicic aaway)

01-16-2007, 11:10 PM
One of Ancic's loss was when he was 15 years old, on a dead rubber against João Cunha e Silva, POR v CRO. :lol:

Pavel - 30 wins impressive. Are all his wins in the World Group stage? Probably not.

02-12-2007, 11:02 PM
with more than 10 matches played, Nalbandian has the best winning percentage

02-14-2007, 03:42 PM
with more than 10 matches played, Nalbandian has the best winning percentage

If he keeps winning 3 poinst in each DC match he can quickly surpass hewitt..

Nalbandian is so dangerous playing for Argentina. Gets so pumped up.

Thanks for the list.
