That’s an incredible stat. Even with how great the big 3 are, I’m still surprised this hasn’t happened in so long.

Damn, definitely a crazy stat and just shows the big 3 domination of the tour for this length of time.

Incredible stat, lasted basically the entire 2010s bar a couple months at the start of 2010.

I’m still pissed about that loss to Roddick, Rafa has been so close to the Miami title so many times, that was a big missed opportunity in an otherwise amazing season.

I have a friend at work who (like me) is very interested in tennis, but he is definitely not a fan of big three. We can make fun of each other, though. When I saw this stat I thought I should rub it in his face. I'm not a major fan of big three myself, but when I speak to my colleague, I always take their side. Since we are good friends, I know he can take it. I'll give you our conversation below because I think his response was kind of funny:

Me: "You gotta admit, every final for almost a decade. Seventy-one tournaments in total. That is pretty amazing. If that isn't dominance I don't know what."

My friend: "I don't think so. They are just vultures the lot of them."

Me: "What are you talking about? This stat covers the big tournaments - mostly just slams and masters - there's no vulturing here."

My friend: "Don't you see what this means? Big three get their trophies easy. They have had a chance to play a non-big-three player in the finals lots of times. The others... that's another story... they have had to beat a big-three player in the final to get the victory every time. So you see... there's no vulturing possible unless you are a big three player. Federer got to beat Cilic in AO 2018, Nadal got to beat Kevin Anderson in USO 2017, and Djokovic got to beat Anderson in Wimbledon 2018. When did a non-big-three player get the chance to play a final like that? Those bastards... they are just vultures... the lot of them."

My friend looked so indignant on behalf of all the non-big-three players, that I just couldn't point out the obvious flaw - that his reasoning was based on the idea of big-three superiority in the first place. My friend is no idiot, so, of course, he realized this himself. That Cilic got to play Nishikori for his only slam was another thing I could have mentioned. But I knew my friend was aware of this and I thought he deserved to get the last word for the sheer creativity of his argumentation. :LOL:

For Slams, they have made the final of every single one they've played together, and IMO this record could easily last until one of them retires....Incredible dominance
