In the last 15 years BIG 3 are breaking almost any record but which records none of them will ever break.I think of 2
1.Consecutive grand slam match wins- Bil Tilden-51
2.consecutive grand slam-Don Budge-6
Do you think of any other important record non of Big 3 will ever break ?

Obviously some age-related records, such as youngest GS winner, youngest number 1, etc.
Besides that, most match wins on clay (Vilas has 679, Nadal is currently at 436) and indoor (Connors 486, Federer 298), consecutive Wimbledon match wins (41 by Borg), consecutive titles in tournaments entered (10 by Borg). Also unlikely: most year-end championships (McEnroe at 8, Federer 6, Djokovic 5)

Most US Open titles (7, jointly held by William Larned, Richard Sears and Bill Tilden). Fed currently shares open-era record (5) with Connors and Sampras.

Yep, I forget the first in 93

Fed currently shares open-era record (5) with Connors and Sampras.

Fed has 5 US Open in a raw 2004 to 2008, but Connors has 1 grass, 1 har-tru (green clay) and 3 hard

8? Please list the years McEnroe won the year-end championships in singles.

Three obvious ones :
  • 206* titles for Laver,
  • 1662* wins for Rosewall
  • 2301* matches played for Rosewall
* only taking account for significant titles, ie neither exhib nor irrelevant ones. On a sidenote it has to be said Rosewall titles count (134) is severely decreased compared to many other greats by the big amount of Round Robin matches he played in pro tours : 689 (non-exhib)! Playing only regular tournaments he'd have probably won far more titles than the ones he's credited for, but things are what they are.

Federer only fell short of Borg‘s Record at wimbledon because he received a WO in 2007 which ultimately put him to 40 consecutive wins. what a shame
