Re: Playing to seeds in Masters Series events - 2012 MC
Madrid's 14 of the top 16 players making the third round tied the best all time, which came in Paris 2009.
It also featured the 105th final without a top-2 seed, and the 14th such final in the event's history, tying it with Paris and Canada.
Rome saw the 23rd 1 v. 2 final, and the third at the event ('06, '11).
It also tied three other event records; the three of top four in the semifinals also tied an event record, occurring for a fifth time, and third in the past four seasons. The six top-eight quarterfinalists equalled Rome '93, and the 12 top-16 players in R3 equalled Rome '90.
