The 100 Club Empty The 100 Club

Post by legendkillar on Mon Jun 10, 2019 8:59 am

Not so long ago in the distant past, a poster on the old forum generated arguably one of the most thought provoking articles a forum had seen for a while aptly titled the 3x100 club. Is was largely inspired by the outgoing warrior that was Lleyton Hewitt who was 2 wins away from posting 100 victories on clay which then would've matched the 100 wins accumulated on Hardcourts and Grass. 

Now interestingly I've seen the stats on Nadal's 93-2 at RG. This got me thinking on Grand Slam match wins and what is more remarkable is Federer's upcoming century of match wins at the Slams. Currently he is on 95 Wimbledon victories and even more impressively on 97 match victories at the AO. Odds are he is likely to reach 100 at Wimbledon this year, if he decides to carry on into 2020 I wouldn't bet against a century of match wins achieved at both Slams. For the record Federer is on 85 match wins at the US Open.

I was checking out other players who have achieved over 100 victories in singles at a Slam and it is very tricky. Navratilova holds an astonishing 120 wins at Wimbledon in singles. Williams is nearly there at Wimbledon and US Open respectively and like Federer 85, but at the AO. Connors missed out on 100 match wins at the US Open by 2. Sampras was nowhere near 100 wins at Wimbledon. Interesting Djokovic is in the highest 60's at all Slams in match wins. 

When I think of feats that are never to be equalled or matched, potentially achieving 100 match wins at 2 Grand Slams would literally be an unbreakable record.

Quite - that would be incredible, and it's part of the astonishing record overall that Federer is 347-56 in the four slams (97-70-95-85).

To put that 347 win total into a bit of perspective, Henman won 496 times in total on tour, JC Ferrero 479 times, and Ljubicic 439 times.  OK, not all-time greats, but elite careers.

I think perhaps his most extraordinary record is reaching 23 SF in a row at slams, during which run he reached 18/19 F between RG05 and AO10 (run of 10, then of 8), the one break being his SF loss to Djoko at AO 2008.

Absolutely. He is posting some ridiculous stats. 

Interestingly the 1274 match record wins Connors holds. Federer sitting at 1207. Given there is 4 Masters 1000 events, 2 Slams and many other ATP events in between left, he could end the year with say sitting on 1240 wins. I think it would be too tantalising not to go on one more season and take the record. Which again would be an absurd record to hold.
