View Full Version : Career 4th round Slam efficiency for current top 10!

Sep 1st, 2002, 07:17 PM
You can expect a lot more pointless crap like this if the rain delay continues.

This is the percentage of the time over the course of their careers where they have advanced to the 4th round. Obviously, players who started Slams at age 14 or 15 will have poorer percentage than those who started at 16 or 17, and players still in their teens will have poorer percentage than those in mid 20's.

1. Monica Seles 34/38=89.5%
2. Venus Williams 19/22=86.4%
3. Martina Hingis 24/30=80%
4. Lindsay Davenport 27/38=71.1%
5. Serena Williams 12/17=70.6%
6. Jennifer Capriati 25/36=69.4%
7. Justine Henin 8/13=61.5%
8. Kim Clijsters 7/14=50%
9. Jelena Dokic 7/15=46.7%
10. Amelie Mauresmo 9/21=42.9%

I think amelie made it to the 4th rd in slams 9 times not 12 including this US open

Pretty consistent with the fact that the top players will make it far into the tournament more often than not.

My bad.

I am frankly amazed Jen is so high considering the consecutive run of first round losses she built up in 1996-1998.

Mark that's true but she was also remarkably consistent in the early 90's. In fact I could barely remember a time when she failed to reach a QF. Pretty good for someone that young and of course now she's one of the most consistent too.

Poor Amelie, but that's so expected :sad:

Wasn't a surprise to see Monica heading the list ;)

Monica lost in the 4th rd Wimbledon '89 and US Open '89 and '01.

What is the other one?

Justin, I think disposablehero's saying Monica's lost BEFORE the 4th round 4 times.

US Open 90
Wimbledon 96,97,99

I could be wrong about her Wimbledon years.

What happened to Monica in 99??? Was that third round Lucic 7-6, 7-6??? What was 97? Third round somebody.....?
