RE: Shark Bites: Big Four Comparison
Some nice statistics. Rafa is doing well in most of the categories, but I like stats for Nole, he is improving them all the time. Didn't help his cause in IW and Miami earlier this year, but I like his total M1000 finals, not too terribly far behind Roger and Rafa and on top of my head when you deduct 3 Cincy finals, most of those lost finals were on clay to Rafa. Hopefully he adds Cincy, it has been a difficult one for him, but I hope he wins it one day and has all of them in his collection.Smile

He'll win Cinci this year. I'm almost 98% sure of it (2% relates to the ankle Tongue).

But I think he takes it this summer, which will be some record...

We shall see. Roger was pretty damn good there last year. In fact it was his last good tournament and he's failed to defend everything since.

Looks like Rafa has everyone in numbers to date.

After Wimbledon Nole will focus on Cinci I imagine and since Federer likes records so will he.

I new that the only one with antidote for Nadal was No1e, but it is still amazing to see his 22-9 combined record against Murray and Federer.

The other thing that surprised me was that Fed is only at 3rd place looking at combined h2h.

Third interesting thing is that the end of year #1 is the one who collects the most points between Madrid/Rome and Wimbledon.

Yes, one thing we have to learn, it is never too early to bring up "the ankle issue". Wink

yeah Rafa's record against all 3 is positive for him, but it is remarkable to look at his record vs Andy and Fed.

Well didn't it say that last year Fed had most points won in this period but didn't end up being year end #1? I think that Nole has lots of points to improve upon during this period and maybe distance himself from others a bit more.
