Kind of confirms what many of us already know ie. Roddick is the best 1 Slam champion and Gaudio the worst.
Roddick and Ferrero have played like 10 more majors than Del Potro and he's right on their tail!

Love the way you manipulate stats to fit your agenda.

fyi, Chang lost 11 times to eventual champion. Yeah he wasn’t “this century” but neither was Goran. Oh wait goran won in 2001, but his losses to eventual champs were in the 90s. Sigh...

What are these gibberish numbers? Can you at least put some effort explaining those before throwing them out like that?...sheesh! Is that some sort of Enigma code or something? LOL

But does the fact that Chang lost 11 times to eventual slam champions change what we'd conclude about the data given by the OP?

Is it possible he only counted this century because counting over a longer period of time takes more time?

Goran’s numbers are all from the 90’s, except his Slam win was in 2001. You should really just go for all time.

I think this whole ranking confirms what I thought was the correct ordering of these players (other than Goran, who is a bit of a wildcard in this list, given that he was essentially from a different era).
