    I thought I'd share some statistics from the last 40 Grand Slam championships.

    - Federer has made the semi's or better on 32 occasions.
    - Either Federer or Nadal has appeared in 32 finals.
    - Federer, Nadal and Djokovic are the only players to win more than 1 Grand Slam, taking 33 in total.
    - Of the 7 other winners, only two have won more than one Grand Slam in their career - Agassi and Safin.
    - Federer has lost before the quarter finals on only 4 occasions, the last being to Guastavo Kuerten in the third round of the 2004 French Open.

    Very interesting stats. However, there is a slight inaccuracy with one of your points (admittedly the most minor of them), The 7 men who have won a single slam in the last 10 years includes Safin, who also won the 2000 US Open. So you're 4th point should read something like:
    Of the 7 other winners, only 2 have won more than one slam in their careers - Agassi & Safin.

    Also, of those 7 single wins, 5 were in the first 9 of the last 40 and 3 were in the first 4!

    Fixed it now. I thought it kind of highlights the significance of Murray's win. Winning slams has been harder than ever, and those stats really highlight that fact.
