I think they include only those who have more than 20 matches in ATP tournaments so, yes, should be 690 overall

Let me tell you something. Federer wasted all 19 (!) break points in the second set against Blake at US Open 2003 but won that match 6-3 7-6 6-3.
Stats: "wasted BP's" sucks
You can waste break points all the time and win a match 7-6 7-6

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces

Chiquita bananas ECC Antwerp

Re: Wasted Break Points

Federer is one of the absolute worst at converting break points and has been for a long time, people only noticed it at last during the RG final against Nadal because it was such a big match and it ended in defeat for him. This is a pet subject of mine, but I could bring up countless matches both won and lost with appalling breakpoint conversions. Not taking four in one game for the double break in the final set against Canas in Miami cost him that match. Not to mention 5/21 against Hewitt at the TMC, 3/17 against Mantilla in Rome, 2/14 against Costa the following year.... the list is endless, and even he's aware of it but he said he gets enough opportunities to get the breaks in the end.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Re: Wasted Break Points

Yeah, but Federer usually goes for wild attacking shots in BPs. What surprised against Nadal was how passive he got everytime he had an opportunity.
