Gasquet has more top 10 Masters Series wins than I would've expected, also Chela is higher than I thought he would be.

As Andy did simply by losing to Federer 8 times, with the exception of the '09 AO. It undoubtedly skews their results, somewhat, not that that's an excuse.


What impresses me is that two of Roddick's were against Murray and Djokovic of all people, both ranked 3 then. It means much more than beating revolvers like Almagro, Isner and the likes.

There's an existing list of players' records against the Big Four.

Comprising detailed records against the rest would be frivolous since the other positions have been greatly subject to change over the years, and beating them isn't of the same standard as beating one of the big four.

2009:

2010:
WL: 48-18
Wins against top 10: 4
Losses to Fed: 1
Losses to other top 10: 4

A closer examination of the empirical evidence is actually more revealing. Firstly, Federer owned Roddick, which is no secret. He accounts for the bulk of Roddick's losses. Looking beyond that, you can see that most years, Roddick was fairly consistent in respect to his duels with fellow top ten, even up to 2010, wherein his body really began to fail him. In short, while Roddick didn't beat a lot of top ten players, neither did they disproportionately beat him.

He simply didn't play that many fellow top 10 players other than Fed. In his prime years, considering his outstandingly positive record and consistently strong results, it demonstrates a failure on the part of his rivals to make it to him at important events. He's not responsible for their inconsistency.

Anyway, considering his positive H2H with Djokovic and Nalbandian, your two subjects of that other mug thread, and his split H2H in majors with three of the top four, I'd be careful about saying he can't play tennis.

Several players removed from the list due to retirement.

Nadal crossed 100-win mark defeating Ferrer in South America earlier this year. Del Potro reached 30-win mark. Tursunov joined the ones with 10+ wins (a total of 43 active players with at least 10 Top-10 wins).
First ever wins for Bautista-Agut, Sijsling and Zeballos. Now 117 active players with at least one Top-10 win.

27 players with wins on each surface (hard outdoors, clay, grass, hard/carpet indoors) and yes, I know that technically indoors is not a surface but you get what I mean.

At first glance, it's shocking to see Hewitt and Federer tied on grass. But the more I think about it, the more I can understand it.

Queen's Club has drawn plenty of top players over the years, many of whom Hewitt has faced en route to his several titles there. Also worth noting that some of the best grass court players (at least once upon a time) were typically ranked outside the top, so beating guys like Philippoussis, Grosjean, Ancic and the likes meant more than, say, Moya, Coria, Gaudio and co.

It's true. Federer has only one top-10 win on grass in Halle (Safin, 5th in 2005) while Hewitt has seven in Queens. Not just any top-tenners either....two wins against Sampras, one against Henman, one against Pioline, one against Philippoussis (ranked 10 on the occasion), one against Nadal. Also one against Blake.

Interesting that both Federer and Hewitt have more Top-10 wins on grass than Sampras (11).
Sampras' wins:
Wimbledon (10) Ivanisevic (2), Becker (2), Henman, Agassi, Chang, T.Martin, Courier, Stich
Queen's (1) Henman
Though it's kind of ironic that in one of his most impressive Wimbledon title runs (def. Grosjean, Henman, Philippoussis, Ivanisevic 4R onwards in 1998) Sampras didn't actually beat a single top-tenner.

You could blame it on grass being much slower than back in the days but Top-10 players now are much more steady on the surface and more often make it to the latter stages of grass tournaments.

I was watching the Djokovic-Nadal match yesterday and I heard one of the commentators give a list of the players in tennis history who have the best record against other top players. I didn't hear the list though, or if the commentator was talking about records against top 10 players. or if he was using another criteria. There are some very knowledgeable tennis fans on this forum so I thought I would ask you guys/gals if you had any information on this?

Big asterisk with that one, though. Graf was 3-0 against a 15 year-old Seles, and then Seles was 4-3 against Graf (3-1 at Majors) and dominating the Majors until she was stabbed and was not the same when she came back. It would be entirely unfair to say that Graf owned Seles although we will never know if Graf would have somehow turned things around.

That was all in one great year by Henin in 2007, but she looked completely burned out in 2008, admitting that what she did in 2007 took too much out of her. It was not sustainable. Plus, Henin lost to Serena 6-2, 6-0, in her 2nd to last tournament before her 1st retirement.

Seles' run was from 1990-early 1993, and she looked stronger than ever at the 1993 Australian Open.

Yeah, well, what do you want to do about it? Should Graf be eliminated from this stat? Or do you have an idea for what would be a proper correction? The original question was who had the best record, not the reason why. And it was an ATP question. Someone else brought in the WTA.

If you want to, you're free to regard Navratilova as the true champion in this category instead of Graf. Or Court, who is almost certainly even better, but who played before rankings so top-10 victories are difficult to count.

In any one on one sport, you are measured by how you do against the best. It's easy to beat a lot of clowns with ease but the real measures how you do against the elite.

Considering how good Novak is, and has been for three years now he will possibly end up with a positive or even head to head with Rafa. Which would be an amazing achievement for him. The question will be, could he beat him in Paris. Rafa has beaten Novak at the U.S. Open.

I'm gonna add losses by tournament category and surface -- just don't know how much time it will take.

But these are Roger's and Rafa's detailed Top-10 W/L records:

Total W/L GS WTF MS Oth DC HO CL GR IN

R Federer 162-87 .651 48-24 39-8 49-32 22-22 4-1 68-37 29-23 14-5 51-22
R Nadal 111-52 .681 29-12 9-10 56-24 13-6 4-0 28-29 65-7 8-3 10-13

Interesting. So Fed has a positive H2H on every surface whereas Nadal has losing records on hard and indoor courts.

No surprises there. Nadal makes hay whilst the clay season is in full swing. Take away clay Nadal would be some random journey man.

Some random journey man with 1 AO, 2 Wimbledons and 1 USO.

This stat tells you everything you need to know about Nadal. Awesome on Clay, Good on Grass, Okay on Hardcourts, mediocre indoors. Some IDIOTS say He is GOAT :rolleyes::wavey:

Those titles came after he broke Federer mentally on clay. He crushes the spirit of his rivals on clay, after that the infection spreads on other surfaces as well. Nadal is not stupid. Look at what he did this year. He skipped the OZ open to get confidence on his beloved clay. Clay has given him everything and he knows it.

It's weird how that happens though. I guess in a way he was lucky Fed & Djoker were good enough on clay to pride themselves on their play. McEnroe & Sampras hated losing anywhere but had no problem getting over losses on clay (with of course one famous exception in Mac's case).

Johnny Mac's loss to Ivan was particularly brutal. He probably knew it was his last and best chance to win the French. As for Federer and Nadal that Rome match in 2006 is the one that finally did for Federer. From that day on Federer seemed to doubt himself against Nadal on pretty much any surface. Had Federer won that match he would have gained great confidence against Nadal. He had Nadal on the ropes and he let him get away. As for Djokovic and Nadal I feel it is Nadal who is now a little scared of Djokovic. Nadal is no longer safe against Djokovic on clay. He desperately wants to crush Djokovic's spirit on clay like he did with Federer in the final at the French in 2008 but he can't. Djokovic would have been very disappointed at losing the semi-final but he now knows that he can get the job done. He played badly and yet he still had a decent chance of winning.

The original post has been changed, now it shows the detailed Top-10 W/L breakdown for active players with at least 10 Top-10 wins. The stats for the other active players with Top-10 wins to be added soon.

Updated. All active players with at least 1 Top-10 win listed.

Funny fact: Serhiy Stakhovsky made it to the list thanks to his Wimbledon upset—win over Federer was his career-first win over a Top-10 player.

Berdych was the only top-tenner in action this week, win over him is De Bakker's 3rd career top-10 win.

Excellent record from Thugdal, I believe he'd have a similar record if he was a Boxer.

Of course Nadal is the most tough player to beat even when he is off.

Updated before WTF.

Djokovic crosses 100-win mark.
Federer reaches 50-win mark at Masters tournaments but now (after loss to Delpo at Basel) has a negative W/L record at MM events.

Nalbandian to be removed from the list after London.

One thing that always strikes me with this list is the clay stats. If we disregard players with three matches or less, only two (!) players have plus stats - Nadal and Federer. Even Djokovic is at just 44%.

Nadal having 68,5% against top10 is unreal, shows how tough to beat he is.

Done.

Nadal 183
Ferrer 136
Hewitt 135
Berdych 132
Haas 128
Murray 121
Davydenko 116
Youzhny 103
And Feliciano Lopez like Stan has played 100 matches.
