Trivia question on wins over #1

#1

Post by mick1303 »

Recent Meddy win made me look into "wins over #1 player" stats. It was his 7th such win and he has wins over 3 different #1s. In the latter stat he joined rather long list of players who beaten 3 different #1 players (now 22 players).
There are only 7 players who are better in this particular stat:
Becker has wins over 6 different #1s
Chang and Agassi have wins over 5 different #1s
Djokovic, Federer, Sampras and one more player has wins over 4 different #1s

Who is that other player who I did not name?

Courier. However, I have a feeling that the answer is an outsider.

Lendl is high on the list of total wins against #1s. With his 14 wins he is #4 behind Nadal, Becker and Djokovic. But he beat only 3 different #1s.

I have to stress that wins are counted only if the opponent was #1 at the time of the match. Wins over former or future #1s do not count.

My definition of an intellectual is someone who can listen to the William Tell Overture without thinking of the Lone Ranger.
