Topic: Tennis Records : Surface Masters

Hello everybody!

I though it would be nice to speak about some records of players on different surfaces. AS a Roger fan.. I am of course starting this by writing about the Grass court specialist Roger Federer:

Since 2003 and his first title on grass courts (Halle), Roger has:

-Played 24 grass court events (13x Wimbledon, 10x Halle, 1x OG) => average of 1.85 grass tournament/season
-Reached the final in 21 of them (10x Wimbledon, 10x Halle, 1x OG) => reaching the final 87.5% of the time
-Won 15 titles (7-3 in Wimbledon, 8-2 Halle and 0-1 OG) => winning 62.5% of the tournaments he entered, 71% of the finals he competed in.
-Compiled a 126-9 records in those 13 seasons (93.3%)
-He only missed the final on three occasions, all at Wimbledon: '10 (QF loss against Berdych), '11 (QF loss against Tsonga) and '13 (R64 loss against Stakhovsky)
-During the 13-year span, he has reached at least one grass court final every season except in '11 when he only played Wimbledon. And he usually plays 2 grass tournaments per season (played 3 in 2012 with the OG where he reached all the finals of the 3 tournaments he played).
-Most titles at Wimbledon in the Open Era (tied with Pete Sampras). Won 7 of the past 13 Wimbledon (54%)., reached 10 of the past 13 Wimbledon finals (77%).
-Most titles in Halle. His personal best tournament. He has reached the final everytime he has played since 2003.

This is all I can think of for now. Pretty impressive stuff.

I look forward to see someone write about Rafa & Clay as those stats are going to be even more impressive than Roger & Grass.

Miscellaneous stats from Roger & Clay: Since 2002 (14 season), he has ALWAYS reached at least one big final during the clay court season (including Masters 1000 & Roland Garros)...
