Number of Quarter Final Appearances of Top Tennis Players

Filed under: sport — ckrao @ 1:02 pm

These tables show the number of quarter final, semi final, final and winning appearances in grand slam tournaments of more recent top tennis players. I have included players who have been ranked number 1,  have won at least 2 grand slam tournaments during the Open era, or have played in many semi finals during the Open era.

A * next to a player’s name means their records prior to the Open era (1968) are also included. Statistics are current to the end of 2015, corrections welcome.

Here are a few interesting observations:

  • Laver won 17 out of 18 semi finals, Borg 16 out of 17.
  • Connors won 15 out of 31 semi finals.
  • Chris Evert won 52 out of 54 quarter finals!
