Lightbulb Who will be the first to break Agassi's 17 TMS Record?

So Roger and Rafael are tied up once again at 16 TMS titles a piece. Either of them can possibly break it this year and they have the chance to both be ahead of Agassi. Obviously Federror likes to always show up in non-GS events so Nadal's chances to take this record are looking good at the moment. Not to mention there are still two clay MS events coming up (however not sure about Nadal's participation in Madrid) so another aspect in Nadal's favor.

Federer's record at TMS events since 2007 have been very poor. Something like 4 wins out of 25 events. Nadal on the other hand has won 10 out of 26 since 2007, granted 7 of those wins have been on clay.

It looks like the record is Nadal's for the taking, but IMO the 2 TMS events Roger won last year were quite surprising and random, so if he can also randomly turn up this year for 2 events, it will be enough to break the record.

You may be skeptical of both Roger/Rafael so you may want to take your chances and claim that Oscar Hernandez will come out of nowhere and win the next 18 TMS events.

Your name could also be SetSampras (or be his protégé) and claim that Sampras is auto-GOAT and will come out of retirement and hit massive backhand winners to win the next 7 TMS events to break Agassi's record.

Or none of these players interest you at all/you don't believe in their chances.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

Hernández sounds like a good candidate in my book. I've totally overlooked him thus far but not anymore. He gets my vote.

Re: Who will be the first to break Agassi's 17 TMS Record?

Huh? It's no question Rafa will break the record first. We all know Fed only won Madrid bc of extenuating circumstances. Dude had been losing to Stan and Nole before that. Fed will be lucky to get one Masters this year in my opinion, whereas Rafa will likely get 3 or 4. I don't see Rafa losing to the likes of Julien, Marcos, and Tomas in Masters events, as Fed has been doing recently. It's becoming a joke.

Anyway...Rafa will break Andre's record sometime in the next few months. Fed has a chance next year, and I think he will break it too. But since Rafa is 4 1/2 years younger than Fed, anything Fed does in terms of Masters Series will be nothing compared to Rafa's final tally imo.

Ernests Gulbis. Robin Soderling. Tomas Berdych.

Del Potro ~ Tsonga ~ Simon ~ Chardy ~ Verdasco ~ Djokovic ~ Gasquet

The Federror #1 reign is over for good. The king is dead. Praise Odin!!

No worries.
The title of this thread was so similar to mine's that I was sure you had done it on purpose just for fun...

Oscar Hernandez wins at life.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
