Four Majors vs Nine Masters 1000

Which is the more difficult feat:

1. Winning the four majors plus the World Tour Finals in a year?
2. Winning all the Masters 1000 titles in a year?

Both feats require nine weeks of high level play.

Re: Four Majors vs Nine Masters 1000

Is this a legitimate question?

Re: Four Majors vs Nine Masters 1000

In today's conditions, the tougher one is probably the nine masters titles. Congrats ATP and ITF. You have done well.

Re: Four Majors vs Nine Masters 1000

Masters are still best of 3 sets, right?

You forgot ajde

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

2 is still harder. 3 sets makes it easier to lose. Drop 1 set and you are on the ropes right away.

Imagine how many times the top4 dropped 2 sets in the slams over the past years. Nadal would have lost in R1 of RG if it was BO3 for example

BO5 allows a bad match and a major walkabout. Remember that Murray made all GS semis last year? Remember how many times he was 0-2 down? If it was masters he would be out, just like it happened for Murray in some HC masters and 500s.

Winning all 9 master 1000 in one year seems almost impossible. Even winning all 9 over a full career is quite crazy

Re: Four Majors vs Nine Masters 1000

Winning all nine 1000s in one year is almost impossible. Nobody has ever won them all in the whole career, nor reached all the finals in a single season. So, comparing these two feats is dumb.

Both are equally easy. You do not need high level play, just stamina. Tennis has died and there is no more variety. All those surfaces are the same, so it is like winning the same tournament over and over again.

it might be less then 20 hours for recovery. Play one match 3 hours and you are on ropes next day unless you are Djodal. Even Nadal lost Madrid vs his favorit pigeon Federer after spartan 4 hours battle day before.

Re: Four Majors vs Nine Masters 1000

If players actually cared about the Masters and winning 2 Masters was equal in in prestige to winning a Slam, then it would be a fair argument. But for now the only thing equal between 2 Master wins and a slam win is the point value. Maybe winning the nine masters is harder after all, because player motivation for getting 9000 points in this manner must be way lower than winning 4 slams and the WTF in one year. That seals your place in history...winning 9 Masters would probably mean that you are a chocker in slams.
