2		Agassi		224
3		Lendl		222
4		Sampras		203
=4		Federer		203
This I find an interesting record. It amazes me how Connors got to 233 given his absences from Australian Open (only 11 wins) and French (though still 40 wins). At the USO only he has an incredible 98 wins, something only 22 players have for all 4 slams combined (not including Safin, Ferrero, Krajicek for instance). At Wimbledon and USO combined he has 182 wins, more than all but 4 players (Agassi, Lendl, Sampras, Federer) have at all slams. Would be great if Federer takes this, say, at the Australian Open 2012.

New record broken after Federer's victory against Chela in R2 of Toronto Masters: he now has the record of most match wins at Masters Series tournaments with 210 (Agassi formerly had the record of 209). Nadal has 180, however, and could overtake him within a few years.

Fed wins his 63rd title (now tied with Borg and just 1 away from Sampras) and 41st on hardcourts. I'll do a major update of the first post in time for the US Open.

Thread updated to be correct at the start of the US Open. Sorry not to have been able to update earlier as promised.

Good to see him making improvements towards some of the records in addition to keeping some of his consecutive record pursuits still going, but there is much to play for in the next two days.

Thanks everyone for the contributions

Default Re: There is no finish line...

Now I'm a big Federer fan, but I have to say the crowning achievement has to be the Calendar Slam . Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Rod Laver the only one to have won all the grand slams in the year successively? I know this isn't a 'Is Roger the GOAT?' thread but since we're on the topic of records/achievements etc I'm just saying this has to be the toughest task in the modern era and Roger hasn't been able to do it. Speaking for myself, Roger will become the GOAT only if he makes a Calendar Slam. I know Rod Laver had only 10-11 slam titles but the magnitude of completing the calendar slam is such that it overshadows everything else. (olympics, career slam etc, and yes even 16 grand slam titles)

A Calendar Slam nowadays is impossible to achieve IMHO. The feild is quite difficult, the top 5 guys are very close and can take each other out any day + the season is very tiresome for the players.

Yes, that's why its the ultimate achievement. Nadal did win 3 out of 4 grand slams this year though. That fact that Del Potro didn't play all year was a big help but still Nadal has shown that its very possible to win a CS in the modern era.

it's easier now than before before the surfaces are less and less different to play than before for the players.
