    Tennis, ranking of players with the most Grand Slam titles in their career – Svsport.it

    Over the past 20 years, we have witnessed the exploits of three of the greatest players in tennis history. Rafa Nadal, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic are now considered true living legends of the sport and the simply sensational numbers prove it, especially ones that will take a long time before they are counted, even if it is not said that anyone will reach them. .

    After all, there are inaccessible records that they could not even scratch. Just think about the primacy of consecutive appearances that belongs, somewhat surprisingly, to the Spaniard Feliciano Lopez, who collected 79, while Federer, for example, collected “only” 65 before retiring for good. The only ones currently considering impacting an Iberian tennis player’s record would be Djokovic and Wawrinka, but given their age and recent tendency to sip attendance to protect their physical form, they won’t be able to do so. .

    Another hard-to-beat record is that of Jimmy Connors, another great player in world tennis, who played six consecutive Grand Slam finals as Bjorn Borg. To date, none of the players still active have come close to this record, but compared to López it is already possible to surpass it since there are many capable young players such as Alcaraz and kafirtalents who are rewriting the modern history of the sport with their early victories and who will likely be the main champions on the men’s circuit when the era of the Big Three finally ends.

    With Federer’s retirement, the magic trio has lost a piece, but in the meantime Djokovic and Nadal are still trying to fight to win as many tournaments as possible. For them, it is not yet time to leave the scene, and we see that especially from the titles they have won recently.

    2022 was the year of Rafa, who returned home to the Australian Open and Roland Garros, while 2023 began under the guidance of Noll, who won the Melbourne Slam to return to the top of the ATP rankings after nearly a year of “absence.” The return to first place also meant that the Serb set the new absolute record for most weeks as number one in the ranking, surpassing the previous record, which had been held for almost thirty years, by Steffi Graf, which stopped at 377. Not even the sports forecasters and Tennis odds It was not expected at the beginning of his career.
