Default Re: There is no finish line...

Saw this in a post on tennis warehouse - thought it was an interesting stat and that JediFed might like to check it out:

If Federer can win 6 more matches this year, he will have won 70 matches in the year that he turned 31.

To put this in perspective, below is the number of matches won by the following players in the year they turned 31.

Connors (1983) 52-11 (worth noting that he went 74-14 the next year)
Agassi (2001) 46-15
Sampras (2002) 27-17
Lendl (1991) 55-18
McEnroe (1990) 33-15
