ATP 5-set Records (five set)

I am saying that the weak era argument (for Djokovic, Federer, or anyone) is, from a logical standpoint, not on.
However good/bad Baghdatis or Berdych or whoever is, you can only beat who is put in front of you.

I don't disagree with any of your analyses of the players by the way, I'm just saying that it doesn't matter.
You certainly are entitled to your opinion but I disagree .

When Sampras retired there was a vacuum in the top 10 ....roddick was number one and some Spanish guy also was number one ....I forgot his name ....was it ferrer ?

The Roddick Federer rivalry was the hottest rivalry there was .....If you want to even call that a rivalry as roddick was completely dominated .

It was filled with journeymen like Blake and Henman.

It was a weak era in my opinion ....and it makes perfect sense .

Clearly not all eras are exactly equal . The period following Sampras retirement was in my opinion a weaker era than others.
 
Bored at work, so I thought I'd update:

Interesting that Fed has won 5 of his last 6 and 9 of his past 13. You'd think as a player gets older their long match record would get worse.

Must be all the doping.

At one point in his career Rafa was at 15-3 in 5 setters. I wonder if he'll do a Hewitt, and lose a bunch of 5 setters in the latter stages of his career.
 

Tenez!

Professional
Three more for the lists :
- Murray loses in 5 to Wawrinka at 2017 FO
- Murray loses in 5 to Querrey at 2017 WB
- Nadal loses in 5 to Muller at 2017 WB


Djokovic really has jaw-dropping stats.
 
Am I the only one who seems very unimpressed by Novak's 5 set record?

He seems to have a lot of (unnecessary, in my opinion) 5 set victories against players he should have beaten quite easily.

Starting from 2007 (the year Novak would have had the CYGS if not for Federer, Nadal),

According to me, many of Novak's 5 set victories are over opponents that he shouldn't have taken 5 sets to defeat. Thoughts?
