How many slams played?

How many slams have Djokovic, Federer, and Nadal each played in? Not how many they have won.

There had been 207 slams in the open era since 1968. Federer's 78 means that he has participated in 38% of them. Unbelievable!
It's a huge number, no doubt - remarkable longevity and self-belief to go with great talent. It's roughly 20 years' worth (just under) out of 50 years' worth (just over) of OE majors. If Fed plays in the next 8, he'll be at 40%.

I just quickly looked at Jimmy Connors' stats: 22 US Opens and 20 Wimbledons, but he usually did not play AO or RG.

Back then it was rare to play all 4 majors! It didn't become "the thing to do" until Edberg, Wilander, & Lendl (Navratilova & Evert for the ladies) started going "down under" on a regular basis! It became a premiere event finally, moved from grass to HC in '88, and I feel Nole's fave; & not just because he's won it 7 times! The fact they've started playing all 4 events begot more H2H match-ups of these top players these last 25+ years! :sneaky:

True.
The main reason I mentioned Connors was to try to compare Fed with another ATG who had similar - and possibly more, to this point - longevity. While only part of their careers were in the OE, other legends who played "forever" included Pancho Gonzales and Ken Rosewall.

Yeah, seems we'll never get rid of him...

Just kidding, Fedfans. We'll never get rid of the Big 3, we're stuck with them at least another 5 years...

A little bit something else:
There have been 207 GS-finals (O Era). Federer has won 20 of them. 53 other winners (probably!). In one relation he is nothing but a very ordinary winner. What is it?
