Regarding %, obviously we are talking about x-0 H2Hs, I think it's Borg-Gerulatis if I'm not mistaking. It's 17-0 (or 16-0, ATP isn't counting a DC dead rubber, so officially it's 16-0)
There are also Federer-Ferrer and Federer-Youzhny 16-0, both with potential to become the "worst".
Djokovic-Cilic 14-0 also has the potential to become the "worst", as does Nadal-Gasquet with the same H2H (on ATP level).
Hint: If you are interested in lopsided H2Hs, you can visit MTF's Turkey thread



MY QUESTION:
How many players can get Davis Cup medals in one season on the winning team? Theoretically, up to 16 players can get involved in a DC victory, provided that there are 4 different players chosen for each tie. Is there a limit or some criteria of determining who will get one?

Wawrinka's ratio is the highest for anyone with both types of title. Muster has the lowest, one slam and eight masters.

Kafelnikov has two slams and no masters. Rios five masters and no slam.

It would. Not difficult to see Federer is #1 on all of those lists. I assume he wanted a top-10 list which requires a bit more work. If I should do one I'd start with the R1 list and the QF list and work forwards or backwards. And then try to remember if I could think of someone who was good at reaching R4 but not the QF. I expect, though, the people known from the QF list would dominate the earlier ones too.

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

We had 11 5-setters including 4 comebacks from 2 sets down today. I checked and there were about 9 in R1 at top half of Wimbledon this year, and about 9 in bottom half of RG this year. Usually there are even less 5-setters in one half.

I would like to ask if this is close to a record, having 11 5-set matches in 1 day? What about 4 0-2 comebacks in 1 day?

Here you have also the same issue presented on the Tipsarevic example

He played: Houston, Bucharest, Munich, Madrid Q, Geneva, Halle Q (all with WC) and Wimbledon, Canada and US Open (those 3 with PR). US Open was his last event before 33-week long break (07/09/2015 – 24/04/2016), which allowed him to freeze his protection period. From Houston to US Open he used 22 weeks and 3 events, which means that after return to play he has 30 weeks left in which he can enter with PR a maximum of 9 times.

He returned to play in Ostrava with WC, when his protection period restarted to run. If he will not have any more break longer than 3 months (which means he will not be able to freeze it again) his protection will end in the week of 14 November, so basically it will last till the end of the season.

Since this second return he played: Ostrava, Heilbronn, Geneva (all with WC), Roland Garros (PR), Prostejov (WC), Queen's Club, Wimbledon (both with PR), Chengdu (WC), Qingdao (Q) and pulled out too late from Cincinnati (so it counts as PR used). So, in that period in total 4 times he used PR, which gives him right to enter with it 5 more times.

Moreover, he entered US Open, St Petersburg and Shenzhen with PR, which means he has 2 chances left till the end of the season. I suppose he will do it for Beijing or Tokyo and Shanghai, since he plans to go to Asia. If he will pull out from any of them before withdrawal deadline (Friday noon, Eastern American time), they won't be counted as used, so he can potentially save some for Indoor Europe. Anyway, pending he has no more 3-month injury, @39 will no longer be valid for any event in 2017 season.
