It really is mind-blowing to me how this trio of men have obliterated the Open Era record books,
whereas "The greatest tennis player ever" --- aka TWS --- has only one more Slam
than previous female record-holder Steffi Graf, coupled with 58 fewer weeks with the #1 ranking.

Thanks to Del Potro Cilic Stan Andy Murray and Thiem they didn't collectively win everything.

Also thanks to Mirka Rusty and line judge.

So...Roddick, Gaudio & Safin are nothing more than chopped liver?

"Also thanks to Mirka Rusty and line judge."

"Mirka": Roger's wife, OK. Prevented him from winning more, in some unproven way...instead of helping on the 20?

"Rusty": all I can think of is Lleyton Hewitt, who definitely didn't prevent any of the Big 3 from winning more.

"line judge": drawing a total freaking blank.

I think I understand which male player represents each number in each category ---
except for the VERY LAST ONE......."Matches won":

1242 is the number of matches Federer has won, but it's not the Open Era record....1274 by Connors is.

And who had what is showing as the past record of 734?

"ATP Tour" only...versus entire Open Era. Got it.

[ Would never have THOUGHT OF IT. But...got it. ]

Gary  Lee  Moser

Although...

If 1990 is the starting point, where is the "Past record" of 6-0 for "FO: No loss in final" coming from?

[ I presumed BORG, naturally, but that can't be the case --- right? And what about Lendl's 19 GS Finals? ]
