Re: Wins over no. 1 players

Great Post! I only can find a couple of mistakes

John McEnroe have 11 match wins vs No. 1, you have to add Masters 1983


And are another players with 4 match winS (Guillermo Vilas, Michael Stich, Sergi Bruguera, Greg Rusedski, Karol Kucera, Patrick Rafter, Nikolay Davydenko and Dominik Hrbaty!)

Nadal 97 weeks as No. 1? Isn't that too low? He is listed as having 103 by Tennis-x. 18/8-08 - 6/7-09 (46 weeks) and 6/6-10 - 4/7-11 (57 weeks).

One has to admire Rafter who didn't lose a single match as number one....

Rafa should be in 2nd place now.

Not sure about pre-2004. And Djokovic didn´t beat World No.1 Nadal at the US Open, Nadal was just No.2
You make two very good points, will change now.

Re: Wins over no. 1 players

Yes, I don't know why I forgot him - add them in a moment.

Actually, on further checking McEnroe was only no. 1 during one of the three times Wilander beat him in 1983 - the final in Cincinnati. When he beat Mac in the semis of the AO at the end of the year he then went on to win the final against Lendl, who was no. 1 at that moment. So it's only four wins overall, two against Mac and two against Lendl, but I'll include them anyway as they were pretty big matches, three coming in the Slams on three different surfaces, and two of those in finals.

Wilander, well doesn't he have 5 wins as well.

McEnroe he managed it 3 times and also Lendl twice, when they were number 1 or was John Mac not number 1 in 1983 when Mats beat him 3 times.

You're welcome!
I appreciate this from MTF's most eloquent member.

I've read the list, which is nice, but wonder what we can read into this. Rafa seems the odd one out. 8 wins over one player. Respect!

Marat Safin, 9 weeks as number 1, 7 losses...
