View Full Version : Who wins most 3 set matches??

Feb 12th, 2003, 03:47 AM
Does anyone know the w-l stats of 3 setters of the top 10 players? Without knowing for sure, I would guess Monica has won the most 3 set matches.

1. Monica Seles 101-44 .697 Winning Percentage
2. Venus Williams 59-27 .686 Winning %
3. Serena Williams 45-21 .682
4. Lindsay Davenport 122-63 .659

They are the on'y one's in the top 100 in winning percentage in the third set.

BTW, Monica is #55, Venus #59, Serena # 65, Lindsay #99.

thanks for the stats, VF. Btw, what are the last row of numbers with Lin-c #99?? Is that of all-time??

Yeah, this is what they are ranked all-time.

I think Navratilova was #60, right behind Venus.

Evert was in the 30-40s. Hingis was I think #100.

And Graf was in the teens, the most impressive stat.

The one's ranked high in the 1-10 range are mostly young players who are just starting out and only played 3 matches and just won them all. They will drop.

That's really interesting, VF! Could you please tell me where
you got those statistics from? Thanx!

Wow, I guess Monica isn't as non-fit as everyone says!! This proves her mental toughness...

I think the stats should only show players who have played more than 50 matches ;)

about monica, if you were to look at her three set stats from 2000 and on, i think they might not be as good!

Monica's Millennium 3 setters (including Olympics, Fed Cup, etc) :

9/5 = .643%

10/4 = .615%

14/4 = .824%

2/2 = .500%

2000-2003 Totals:
35/15 = .700%

Your point has been soundly disproven. 3 set wins in that timeframe include: Venus Williams, Serena Williams, Martina Hingis, Lindsay Davenport, Jennifer Capriati, Kim Clijsters, Justine Henin-Hardenne, Jelena Dokic. As a matter of fact he only current Top 10 players that Monica didn't beat in 3 sets is Amelie Mauremso and Daniela Hantuchova (but she has beaten them in that timeframe in straight sets).
