What a page[edit]

Honestly, I've read tens of thousands of pages on Wikipedia, but this one, when it comes to stats (compilation, accuracy, updating) takes the cake. Kudos to all of you who have worked on it!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.63.29.251 (talk) 17:59, 12 July 2017 (UTC)

Changes Suggested[edit]

Under the title of 'Tournament Titles 2009-2013' should this not reflect just their period s a big four? As in 2013 Roger Federer dropped out of the top 4 rankings so shouldn't this be changed to just show 2009-2012 as during those years the top 4 tennis rankings were just the Big 4 at each year end? Not sure how to change things here, but this bugged me a little given it's meant to focus on their period as a Big 4.

Thanks.

No, it should not be changed. That section is "meant" to focus on their tournament titles from 2009 to 2013, which it does, and which was a period of particular dominance for them over the rest of the tour. In 2013, they won all of the big titles (4 Majors, 9 Masters, Tour Finals), so it makes sense to include it with 2009-2012. The whole article is about the Big Four and covers their entire careers at various points, so this section is not somehow problematic in a way that the rest of the article wouldn't be by your definition. And their status as the "Big Four" is not dependent on or defined by their rankings, and certainly not their year-end rankings only. Witness almost this entire season in which they have held the top four rankings for only a week or two, but in which the media have persisted in talking about the "Big Four" anyway.

Combined Big Titles Performance Timeline (best result)[edit]

@Zain786909: I think this table is unnecessary (and very close to redundant) since it basically just combines information already displayed in other tables nearby. It also rather arbitrarily starts in 2003. But, if you want to include it in the article, then at the very least you need to (1) put it in a more appropriate place (i.e., don't divide the table for "Top Tier singles tournament standings since 1990" from the paragraph that explains that table) and (2) make it match the formatting of all the other tables in the article (i.e., follow the color scheme for tournaments and for results and indicate by superscript which member(s) of the Big Four achieved which results). You should probably also add a row for the Olympics and pick a non-arbitrary starting point (like the beginning of Federer's career). In the form you have already twice tried to add this table to this article, it sticks out like a sore thumb. The article is in very good condition, and many editors have worked very hard to make it so, and there is no desperate need for this table, so there is no reason to add it until it looks like it belongs. Perhaps you should work on it in your sandbox. LacrimosaDiesIlla (talk) 13:27, 14 August 2017 (UTC)
