We have Becker vs Edberg at 25-10.

Are you aware if anyone else played between them more then 35 times or with a bigger differential ?

Yeah but Fed's 6-12 vs Nadal is proof positive that he's the worst GOAT of all time!!!

Federer-Roddick 15-2 comes close. I'd love to see how that h2h finishes once they've retired.

You tell me. Make a prediction.

Unless you think they'll never meet again. Maybe Roddick retires after marrying his fiancee.

Yup. Becker often played awesome against Edberg. A bad match up for the classy swede.

BUT. Edberg was the best when it mattered the most. 3-1 in GS.

1988 Wimbledon F Edberg 4-6 7-6 6-4 6-2
1989 Roland Garros S Edberg 6-3 6-4 5-7 3-6 6-2
1989 Wimbledon F Becker 6-0 7-6 6-4
1990 Wimbledon F Edberg 6-2 6-2 3-6 3-6 6-4

All that matters. You should only count the h2hs in slams.:angel:

LOL. No-where near.

Ljubicic was closer to world #1.

Ljubicic was ranked up to #3, pretty close. :P I think Martin was ranked fourth once.
