I think Vilas had 56 & Connors had 55. So, Federer needs an extra 6 to equal Vilas.

Very nice work, Approach Shot. It's an even nicer read after a day spent in GM - 'nuff said

Title #67 for Federer now, with his straight sets victory over Davydenko in Doha. He is just 1 tournament win away from Agassi's record on hard courts. Will he be able to do it at the Australian Open?

Default Re: There is no finish line...

So Fed notches up the 750th win of his career and in so doing, ties Edberg for the record of having won the most matches at the Australian Open in the Open Era (56 match wins). For a moment I thought that Roger would have to wait until next year to add this record to his long list of achievements, but it's great to see him pull through in the end.

Needless to say, a win against Malisse in R3 would see him overtake his childhood idol. On that note though, does anyone know the record for most consecutive R3 or better performances at Grand Slam tournaments (without absences from slams during the streak)?

From the top of my head, Federer holds the record for most consecutive 2nd rounds (31), 3rd rounds (31 - Lendl 2nd with 28), QFs (26), SFs (23) and Fs (10). Lendl holds the record for consecutive 4th rounds (28), Ferreira for 1st rounds (56) and Laver for Wins (4).

Today he also achieved his 12th consecutive 3rd round performance at the Australian. He is still undefeated in 1st and 2nd round Hardcourt Slam matches (46-0).

Default Re: There is no finish line...

Some suggestions:

Most FO match wins
http://www.tennis28.com/slams/matchw...andgarros.html
Federer is 6th with 43 wins, 13 behind Vilas, should be possible unless Nadal gets there first (38 now).
(perhaps even Wimbledon, he is 29 wins behind Connors...)

Most consecutive years winning a Slam
=1. Federer, Borg, Sampras, 8.

Most career Grand Slams
1. Laver, Emerson, 2
=2 Federer, 1

Most 250 titles (since 1990, like 500 and masters)
1. Muster 26
=2. Federer 20

Most match wins at each Slam
1. Lendl 48
2. Agassi 46
3. Federer 43. (Fed could get this at the FO already)

Number of different tournaments won at least 5 times (open era)
=1. Federer, Nadal, 4. (wim,uso,halle,wtf vs mc,barcelona,rome,fo)

Most SF reached at each Slam
=1. Federer, Agassi, Lendl, 5. (Fed only needs a 6th FO SF to take the record. A 7th FO SF would even take it to 7.)

Most QF reached at each Slam
=1. Federer, Agassi, Lendl, 7. (Fed needs an 8th QF at AO,FO and USO)

Most consecutive F at each Slam
=1. Federer, Lendl, 2. (Fed only needs a final at AO2011 to make it 3)

Most QF reached at at least 3 different Slams
1. Connors, 8.
=2. Federer, Lendl, Agassi, 7. (Fed needs another QF at 2 slams out of AO,FO,USO)

Most F reached at at least 2 different Slams
1. Sampras, 7.
=2. Federer, Borg, Connors, 6. (Fed needs another USO final)

Hope you can use something.

Default Re: There is no finish line...

Thanks a lot! These record chases are very interesting and some are ones that I hadn't thought of before (though I didn't include the match wins at Wimbledon because he won't eclipse Connors even if he wins the next 4 championships in a row). I will incorporate the others in the next big update once the Australian Open is over. In the meantime, please keep the suggestions coming.

It would certainly be amazing if Federer reaches the 4th round of the FO this year and participates in every Grand Slam tournament until USO 2013. Then he would have the record for the most consecutive appearances in R1, R2 ,R3, R4, QF, SF and F - that is, in each and every round!

Default Re: There is no finish line...

You're welcome! Fo some I was wondering whether they would be interesting enough to include, "consecutive QF at 3 slams" might be pushing it. Federer is also tied with several others at having won precisely 1 tournament 6+ times. He and Nadal (also one, Monte Carlo) could battle this out the coming years.

On a sidenote, Federer can get his 15th consecutive hardcourt SF in slams if he wins another 2 matches. Right now he has 20 consecutive hardcourt 4th rounds and 23 3rd rounds. Quite amazing given the timespan, and records, though AO only quite recently switched of course. Noone to catch or surpass in those regards so not of interest for this thread.

It would certainly be amazing if Federer could catch the 1st round record. That one is far easier to achieve for some average top 100 player. All it takes is good health and constantly being in the top 100 for 14 years. :P

Well, there is still the consecutive Wins left... if Nadal makes it 4 or 5 this year he could have a strong case in a few years. But that is speculation at this point. Why didn't Federer win the FO 2006 again?

Even though, in general I consider 'total' records to be more significant than 'consecutive' records.
