Who will be the first to break Agassi's Masters record?

Right now both Fed and Rafa have 16, one less than Agassi.

I think it's likely that both of them will win at least 2 more MS in their careers. The question is when... The record could be broken before RG this year in case that one of the two wins Rome and Madrid.

PS: I think it's a shame that Masters aren't what they used to be. Back when Agassi was playing there were no byes and the final was played to the best of 5 sets. For that reason, I don't think the Masters can be easily compared in numeric absolute terms but then again records are made of numbers so what gives...

Re: Who will be the first to break Agassi's Masters record?

Kind of interesting trivia:


Nadal was the fastest to:

5 titles: Nadal (8 tournaments/2 years: Monte Carlo 2005 - Monte Carlo 2006)
10 titles: Nadal (24 tournaments/4 years: Monte Carlo 2005 - Monte Carlo 2008)
15 titles: Nadal (34 tournaments/5 years: Monte Carlo 2005 - Rome 2009)

Winners of the 3 AMS tournaments on clay
Ríos (Monte Carlo '97, Rome '98, Hamburg '99)
Kuerten (Monte Carlo '99, Rome '99, Hamburg '00)
Nadal (Monte Carlo '05, Rome '05, Hamburg '08)

Most titles at one tournament
6: Agassi (Miami: '90, '95, '96, '01, '02, '03)
6: Nadal (Monte Carlo: 2005-2010)

Most different tournaments won
7/9: Agassi

Most different tournament finals played
8/9: Federer
8/9: Nadal

Most tournaments won in one season
4: Federer (2005, 2006)
4: Nadal (2005)

Most consecutive matches won
29: Federer (2005–2006)

Most consecutive years winning at least one title
6: Nadal (2005–2010)

Players who played the most finals against each other
1.Federer v Nadal, 8 times
2.Agassi v Sampras, 5 times

The final of the 2005 Rome Masters between Spaniard Rafael Nadal and Argentine Guillermo Coria marked the longest final of the Open Era (since 1968): 5 hrs. and 14 mins, with 18-year old Nadal prevailing. The 2006 final produced another classic, 5 hrs. and 5 mins long, with Nadal defeating Federer in a fifth set tiebreaker after saving two match points.

Re: Who will be the first to break Agassi's Masters record?

fed and rafa could be tied at 17 before french open
rafa takes rome and fed takes madrid
though there is a possibility that rafa takes both rome and madrid which in that case he would break with 18

Re: Who will be the first to break Agassi's Masters record?

Rafa will very probably take Rome, may be unwilling to expend energy in Madrid so Federer could potentially take that one, and then I'd say Federer has an advantage in the autumn hard court MS tournaments, but overall I think to me it looks more likely Rafa will. He'll probably end up with more overall in any case.

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

Yeah I could see that happening, so I guess Roger will be first especially since I don't think Rafa will play in Madrid.
