NIce thread. :yeah: It's amazing to see the win % that Connors was able to produce given the fact that the played many, many matches as an old man and lost.

If he retired at the edn of 1989 let's say (at the age of 37 when he was still a top 15 player) he would've avoided the 42-45 record he put up until he retired. That would put his winning % at an astonishing .840. Then again, if he had retired at 37, he wouldn't have gone on that run in 1991 at the Open.

:haha: We would need different matches when it rains at the Open. Before 1991, they used to show JMAC/ Connors 1984 battle a lot and some of Borg/JMAC 1980 action.

Re the Weeks #1 stat - there's Consecutive Wks. & Total Weeks. I think Fed has already surpassed Pete's rec. for Consecutive Wks, which I think is ~130. Does anyone know if anyone has more Consecutive Wks. than Fed's 143?

Pete was the world number one for "only" 102 consecutive weeks. Jimbo has 160. That will be surpassed in 18 weeks, though. ;)

Federer at 143 is exactly half of sampras' 286 weeks.

Agassi is the only world number 1 to have won all 4 slams :)

This is why this site has a (little visited) statistics section: http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=80484

Federer has to surpass Lendl (157) and Connors (160) to take this record.
He is already virtually assured of reaching 160 weeks though.
More interesting is wether Roger can also break the wta's record of 186 consecutive weeks. This would be somewhere between Wimbledon and the US Open 2007.

Newcombe might have had more weeks at No. 1 if the system had started earlier. He won 6 of his 7 majors (5 of the 7 were Open Era) before the ranking system was instated.

Same for the first No. 1, Nastase, who was probably the player with the best results before they started the rankings in August.

Good to see someone else appreciating Newcombe;) ;) .. The guy is a living legend:worship: ~> last year I met him in person & was most impressed:angel: .. Basically he didn`t know me from a bar of soap & yet he gave me 5-minutes of his time for some honest advice;) .. Very grateful to the guy with the famous mou:cool:

Unluckily, Nastase was very strong in 1972-1973 (even though 2 Grand Slam only - US Open 1972 and Roland Garros 1973), he won totally 26 singles title including 2 Year-End Masters within 2 years. Necombe had no Slam in 1972, even though he won 7 titles (6 WCTs) in 1972 and won 2 Slam (Australian Open and US Open, totally 3 titles) in 1973.

ie. Computer Ranking worked in 1973.


Nastase

1972 (12) - Baltimore, Omaha, Monte Carlo, Madrid, Nice, Dusseldorf, Montreal, US Open, South Orange, Seattle, London, Masters

1973 (14) - Omaha, Calgary, Barcelona, Monte Carlo, Madrid, Florence, Roland Garros, Rome, Queens, Gstaad, Cincinnati, Barcelona, Paris Indoor, Masters


Newcombe

1972 (7) - Las Vegas WCT, St. Louis WCT, Fort Worth WCT, Alamo WCT, Vancouver WCT, Gothenberg WCT, Johannesburg-2

1973 (3) - Australian Open, Djkarta, US Open

Lendl, Agassi, Edberg, Courier, Federer, Laver.

The six guys to have reached all four slam finals in the open era. Only two of them have been able to win all four as well.

And had Mac and Borg only bothered playing in AO they would have been on the list for sure.

Funny to see Courier on that list :lol:

It is indeed strange. He is undoubtedly the worst player on it, only 1 final at W and USO.

Multiple Slam winners not to be that year-end NO. 1 :

1973 Newcombe (Australian Open, US Open) - 3 singles titles

1977 Vilas (Roland Garros, US Open) - 16 singles titles

1978 Borg (Roland Garros, Wimbledon) - 9 singles titles

1982 Connors (Wimbledon, US Open) - 7 singles titles

Connors 160, Lendl 158. But Federer will surely break those records, he needs to be no 1 until last week of February 2007 to surpass Connors.

Becker was Wimbldeon and US Open Winners, only 5 titles.

But Lendl was Australian Open Winner, Us Open Runner-up and Wimbledon Semi-final, totally 10 titles.

Lendl's NO.1 and Becker's NO.2 were reasonable! :cool:

Yep, mighty Goran is one of the best withput doubt :).

But you also have to consider that Vilas won 62 titles (finalist in another 40 tournies). 4 grand slams (another 4 finals) and 1 year end championship.
