The most titles

Because Novak Djokovic won his 30th singles title last Sunday, Leander Paes his 50th doubles title last Saturday, I guess it is a good time to make an entry considering the most titles won by particular players in the Open era. Unfortunately different numbers circulate due to different reasons (for example there was said through many years that John McEnroe won 78 titles in doubles, suddenly he is listed 71 by ATP and perhaps by the Wikipedia in the consequence of it), so I stick to the official ATP website preparing the stats. Jimmy Connors is a lonely leader of the singles list and his record belongs to very few which seem impossible to overcome in the future. Todd Woodbridge won the most doubles titles in the Open era, but his record may be surpass even this season. According to Bud Collins’s “History of Tennis” within a season the most titles won: Rod Laver – 17 in singles (1969) and J.McEnroe – 17 in doubles (1979).

    Nice!

    It’s almost impossible than someone can reach Connors, the last person that had one opportunity was Federer, but now think that Federer will win 36! titles more is very difficult, Connors will have this record for a lot of time.

    Only Juan Monaco have a record of 4-8 in finals.
