This is prior to the AO, so Federer will move up. Last to crack this list was Agassi.
What comes out when you divied this over the number of grand sla tournmanets that they played?

Most efficient is Borg.

I don't even need to do the calculating to tell you that.

Borg is the only one in Tennis who AVERAGED a QF in every slam he entered, with more then 100 total Grand Slam Match wins.

Federer now, as of USO 2009 is up to 4.476 over 42 slams.

Can you go way down to Nadal (99 and hopefully 100 in some 11 hours time)?

He's still behind Hewitt (126) and behind Roddick (106).

Those are the only other actives who are close. Safin only had 95. Hewitt needs another 12 more to pass Borg.

Table corrected. Nadal, Kafelnikov and Nastase are all off the list while tennis Legendas Ferreira, Martin and Smith added. Roddick now just 10 behind Chang for the 'One shot wonder' award.

To put it this way, 120 is the equivalent of 24 semifinals.

Where do you guys think Federer will end up on this list? My bet is he'll surpass Connors either at Wimbledon or the US Open next year.

If Federer wins every GS match he will surpass:
Sampras (203)in Wimbledon this year
Lendl (222) in Australian Open 2011
Agassi (224) in French Open 2011 and
Connors (233) in US Open 2011

Records still coming :)
He doesn't even need to do that. He could 'just' get to the final of the remaining majors this year, and then to the quarters of all four next year. That'd equal Connors' 233 at the US Open in 2011.

Amazing that this longevity record is now almost a shoe-in!

Rafa will be 21st player on the list tomorrow and,if I'm not wrong,only 5th with 100 Grand Slam victories before 24th birthday (Borg,Wilander,Becker,Edberg)

More significantly, if Roger makes the semis, he will become the first player to reach 200 wins in his 20's. Lendl was the second fastest, reaching 200 at the 1991 US Open, at the age of 31 7 months.

If he averages a SF/slam over his next 7 slams, and 1 win, or 2 finals, Roger has an outside chance of owning the record outright by September 2011, just after his 30th birthday. The earliest he can acheive it is in Wimbledon of next year.
