Federer everything. This is just absurd.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o..._Roger_Federer

18 Grand Slam Singles Titles, Next is Sampras/Nadal at 14
28 Grand Slam Singles Finals, Djokovic/Nadal next at 21
10 consecutive men's Grand Slam finals (2005–2007) (2.5 years of being #1 or #2)
23 consecutive men's Grand Slam semifinals (5.75 years of consistency)
36 consecutive men's Grand Slam quarter-finals (9 years it took)
5+ finals at all four grand slams
5+ titles at three Grand Slams

302 weeks as World Number 1, next is Sampras at 286
237 consecutive weeks as World Number 1, forgot who's next but it's not even close.

There is no other player in the history of tennis who has won 6+ titles in 6 different tournaments. Federer has won 6 titles at World Tour Finals, 7 titles at Wimbledon (Grand Slam), 7 titles at Cincinnati (Masters 1000), 7 titles at Dubai Tennis Championships (ATP500), 7 titles at the Swiss Indoors (ATP500) and 8 titles at Halle Open (ATP500).

Basically each time he wins a tournament from now he's gonna be breaking a record for being the Oldest at something to win in the Open Era. At the same time. He's on track to be #1 again at some point this year, and if he finishes the year at #1, he will be oldest to ever do it and it'd be unheard of.

Pretty much all of the old baseball pitching wins records will never be broken due to how pitchers are used in modern times. Like the record of 500 career wins and a 60-win season are impossible to break even if a pitcher today won every start.

True. That's why Maddux to me is gonna be the last to get anywhere near where he got. I think 200 will be the new 300 with the way starters are used and bullpens.

It's gonna take a decade for the writers to acknowledge it though as a milestone.

Rickey Henderson's stolen base record can be broken, but I don't think it will especially with how 40-50 stolen bases is enough to lead the league most seasons these days. No one's stolen 100 bases since Vince Coleman. I don't know if it's less emphasis on stealing or if catchers are better at throwing runners out, but the league leaders will only put up those numbers for a few seasons and then stop.

DiMaggio's 56 games is in the other category, so I believe it will be broken some day, unless MLB completely dies. It's inconceivable to me that if you had billions of hitters over millions of years that nobody will ever fluke their way to that kind of hitting streak ever again.
This. The most any starting pitcher gets in MLB these days is around 35 starts a year. In order to break Cy Young's wins record a pitcher would have to win every game for 15 straight seasons. It's never going to happen. Just getting to 300 wins is a rarity these days. Of the active pitchers in MLB nobody has more than 235 wins.

You want to talk about a record that will NEVER be touched by another playing the same position? Try this,

Henri Richard 11 Stanley cup wins as a player
Jean Beliveau 17 Stanley cup wins (10 as a player and 7 as a coach)

You need to be good enough (or you won't be with a team that wins the cup), a career that is long enough (only one chance a year) and be in the right team at the right time.


Since we are adding "team" records

Montreal Canadiens 5 season Stanley cup win (this century only the penguins have managed to make it 2 in a row) and 10 Stanley Cup Final appearances in a row (next closes is Habs in the 60's and Islanders in the 80's with 5)
