Most Wins in Men's Tennis History

Tennis Stats and Record

Winning in tennis, yet alone winning a high number of matches, is one of the toughest things to do in the sport. Tennis is such a competitive game, where anyone can beat anyone on their day. However, some tennis players reach a level above everyone and they are able to absolutely dominate the game. These are the tennis players with the most wins in the Open Era.

1. Jimmy Connors, USA, 1274 Match Wins

  • Jimmy Connors is one of the best players of all time, and it is unfortunate that he was not playing during the late 90s and early 00s when we could have had comparisons between him and Roger Federer. Connors was a performer on the tennis court, showing us that if you leave it all on the court you will find success. Connors has won 1274 matches throughout his 24 year career and he won an astonishing 109 titles in doing so.

2. Roger Federer, Switzerland, 1242 Match Wins

  • Roger Federer is arguably the best tennis player of all time, and he is definitely not going to remain on this list as second for much longer. Federer has played for 22 years and he is only 32 wins behind Connors. Federer's game is so good and he is able to dominate anyone when fully healthy. Federer will top this list by the end of his career, but for now he remains second.

3. Ivan Lendl, Czechoslovakia, 1068 Match Wins

  • Ivan Lendl is one of the best players of the 80s and 90s, winning many Grand Slam titles and winning even more matches. Lendl has won 1068 matches in his career, making him one of the best players of all time. Lendl will be remembered as a classy player who was a dominant force in the Men's game.

4. Rafael Nadal, Spain, 990 Match Wins

  • Rafael Nadal was and still is one of the most dominant forces in the history of tennis. Nadal continuously leaves it all out on the court, and he does not just only beat opponents, but he destroys them. Nadal has won an incredible amount of titles in his career, and this is because of his 990 match wins under his belt. Nadal will reach the 1000s wins sooner rather than later and if he plays for a few more years, he definitely can come close to Federer.

5. Guillermo Vilas, Argentina, 949 Match Wins

  • Guillermo Vilas was an incredibly dominant player in the 1970s and early 1980s, and his longevity of a 24 year career allowed him to reach tennis greatness. Vilas won 949 matches throughout his career, and an astonishing 62 titles. Vilas was incredibly fun to watch and he will always be remembered as a dominant force in tennis.

6. Novak Djokovic, Serbia, 911 Match Wins

  • Novak Djokovic is the dominant force in tennis nowadays, alongside Nadal and Federer. Djokovic struggled throughout the beginning of his career, trying to find consistency in his game. However, in the last 10+ years, he has found new levels in his game which have allowed him to absolutely dominate anyone. Djokovic will also reach 1000+ victories if he plays for a few more years.
