Federer is turning 26 this August. How many titles and majors did other legends win after age 26.

Posted by tennisplanet on May 15, 2007

Here are the number of titles and majors won by these legends after turning 26: 

Lendl – 33 titles – 6 majors = 39

Connors – 34 – 3 = 37.

Agassi – 22 – 5 = 27.

McEnroe – 18 – 0 = 18.

Sampras – 10  – 4  = 14.

Becker – 10 – 1 = 11.

Edberg – 7 – 1 = 8.

Wilander – 1 – 0 = 1.

Most majors won after age 26 is 6 by Lendl. Lendl’s success in the game had a lot to do with his highly meticulous and intensive training and physical conditioning regime, his scientific approach to preparing for and playing the game, and a strong desire to put in whatever it took to be successful.

Lendl is followed by Agassi (5) and Sampras (4).

If Federer at least equals the best record for both titles (34) and majors (6), he will end up with:
