Roger sends his records (even) higher

13.10.2006 | Tennis

Whilst the other competitors are still battling for a place in the Masters Cup in Shanghai, Roger is quietly enjoying heading the ATP Race 2006 ranking. Winning the competition in 2004 (1267 points) as well as 2005 (1345 points), he has just set up a new record with 1374 points after his victory in Tokyo. And the season is far from finished…

 

On Sunday Roger won his 77th match this season (to 5 defeats).

 

His sixth consecutive victory against Tim Henman also means that Roger has been able to take the lead in the head-to-head between the two players: 7-6.

 

Reading Roger’s stats on hard court can cause dizziness: He currently stands at 49 victories compared to 2 defeats this year. Last year he finished with 50 victories compared to one single defeat.

 

Roger has won 232 matches and only suffered 15 defeats since 2004. In 46 tournaments played he was the one holding up the trophy 31 times in the end. This summer he managed to win the double Wimbledon-US Open for the third consecutive time. Unique… Roger has only been defeated twice since Roland Garros (against Rafael Nadal in Paris and Murray in Cincinnati), winning a total of 39 matches.

 

So far, Roger has played 13 finals this season, thus one more than last year and two more than 2004. A new personal record.

 

42 victories in 55 finals played in his career – 76.4% - is Roger’s stat since the beginning of his career. Pete Sampras ‘only’ reached 72.2% (64/88), John McEnroe 71.3% (77/108) and Björn Borg 70.5% (62-88).

 

Roger has now won titles in 14 different countries after his first victory in Japan.

The stats are just incredible. Now that you have reversed the record against Henman, you just need to turn the tables on Nadal. The 232-15 record over 3 seasons (almost) is remarkable and just wanted to know how many people have had that kind of winning p

Roger, These stats are really amazing especially compared to the other "greats". Your performance day-in and day-out is almost unbelievable. Your hard work, talent and metal toughness is really setting a new standard for others to follow. All the best

Still, the one major victory that is missing is the French Open crown. If he had won it this year, he would be without the doubt the greatest of all time already. He was only one match away, what a heartbreaker! Hopefully Roger will figure out Nadal on
