Roger Federer Hi. I see you deleted Federer's record of having "5 years with match winning percentage of 90%+" in Grand Slam matches, claiming it is "erroneous." Why did you do that when the record is in fact correct. No other player in the Open Era has won 90%+ Grand Slam matches for 5 years overall (except for Borg, who had this for 5 consecutive years, a separate record). Federer won 95.7% (2004), 92.3% (2005), 96.4% (2006), 96.3% (2007) and 92.9% (2009). So how is this record "erroneous" when this applies only to Grand Slam matches? —Bloom6132 (talk) 12:51, 14 July 2012 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for fixing this, I mistook it to be the record for all matches rather than specific to Grand Slams. Gap9551 (talk) 13:04, 14 July 2012 (UTC)
You're welcome. Cheers! —Bloom6132 (talk) 13:13, 14 July 2012 (UTC)
In his list of career achievements, you also changed his record 3 victories in Madrid into "two", deleting the 2006 victory. 2006_Mutua_Madrileña_Masters_Madrid Why? (talk) 06:38, 21 August 2012 (UTC)
His 2006 win was not on clay, and this record is about the third clay Masters tournament. Now Madrid has become the second, this record is getting a bit unpractical to maintain perhaps. Gap9551 (talk) 08:55, 21 August 2012 (UTC)
Ha, thanks for the reply... Hum, now that I reread the whole sentence, I have absolutely no idea what it means, so you're probably right.

"Federer has won a record six titles at the third (second since 2011) clay court ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event, with a record four titles in Hamburg (2002, 2004, 2005 & 2007) and a record two titles in Madrid (2009 & 2012)." Third what? In what does this record consist, given that Nadal has won about 15 ATP 1000 on clay? No idea... Yes, only Federer won 4 times Hamburg as an ATP 1000, and only he won Madrid twice on clay, but even knowing that, I still can't understand the sentence. (talk) 16:43, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

The idea is that Federer has won a record number of titles at clay Masters outside Rome and Monte Carlo (these 2 have been held every year since forever). But it is a bit of a far-fetched record due to the rescheduling. Gap9551 (talk) 00:02, 22 August 2012 (UTC)
