#3 Roger Federer:
Match Record: 49-12 | 80.3% (1 win by retirement)
Set Record: 146-52 | 73.7%
I know that recording stats in ^^this^^ format is acceptable but I prefer.
Seems to me that reaching 6 semifinals should be recorded thusly.
As you wish...and I understand what you are doing...but I strongly disagree. I'm listing and totaling the individual end results and one can only have 1 result per match. Doing it your way falsely inflates the numbers in that regard. I think it is understood by everyone that if one wins the title they have also won the first round through the final, or if one makes the final that they have won from the first round through the semifinal.
Look at it this way. If one recorded the total number of tournaments played as well, and the player did not finish lower than the semifinals, one might see something like this:
6 - Tournaments played:
1 - Title
4 - Finals
1 - Semifinals
6 results for 6 tournaments played
Or your way:
6 - Tournaments played
1 - Title
5 - Finals
6 - Semifinals
12 ? for 6 tournaments played... no, we can't add them...hmm. so what are we looking at?
Somebody looking at the second way might be scratching their head for a bit.
Also, in the second instance, if one didn't have the context that the player only played a total of 6 tournaments, one might falsely arrive at the conclusion that the player played in 12 tourneys, with a win, 5 final results, and 6 semifinal results.
The first way tells one at a glance what end result was achieved in the 6 tournaments and there is no confusion.
Then, if one wants to calculate how many semifinal and higher
results a player has achieved, one simply totals the individual semifinal, final, and title results.
