Can't believe Kafelnikov never won a Masters 1000.

I think he, Delpo and Gonzo are the best players who never won a title like that.

Kiwi
I still remember that amazing 2008 Toronto Masters 1000 where he beat Fish, Youzhny, Davydenko, Blake and Simon (who beat Federer in Round 1)
to get to the final where he lost against Nadal, (who became World nº1 the week after).
Fantastic tennis from Kiwi that week.

Shame he didn't convert any of the 4 break points he had in the 5th game of the second set. God knows what could have happened.

I miss Kiwi.

Nicolas Kiefer

Benjamin Becker

Michael Russell

Iván Navarro

Re: Who are the Best Players to Never Win a Masters 1000 Title?

Interesting that none of the three men with 68 tournaments have 68 losses.

Santoro's 24 top-10 wins and no finals....but he never once gave a WO.

.
(November 6st)
ST rank 47 (best 1) - 13 wins, 3 titles (Paris 2014, Madrid + Vienna 2015) YE rank: 16 - 1 - 22 - 47
TT singles rank 105 (high 29), Titles: Memphis 2015.... TT doubles rank 30 (high 19). Titles: Quito 2015 (w/scarecrows), Basel 2015, Barcelona 2016 (w/Björki), Estoril 2016 (w/Taz Warrior), Kitzbühel 2016 (w/tal20)

Kafelnikov and Del Potro.

Gonzalez's name stands out too but I don't consider him quite as high as the other two.

I agree with acacacacademy.

Kafelnikov.

Delpo surely will win one someday.

Half these players peaked in the GOAT 2008-2013 era, not surprising.

He won a Slam, which makes him better than Slamless players by default - apart from Kafelnikov and del Potro this list is made solely of Slamless players.

I think this is article about best titleless Masters 1000 players based on their Masters career

Re: Who are the Best Players to Never Win a Masters 1000 Title?

Wow Kafelnikov never won a Masters 1000. Must be the best to have not won it from that list.

Del Potro to break his duck next season hopefully.

Fan of the greatest fighter in the history of Tennis - Rafael Nadal. 14 GS, 27 Masters 1000, 1 Olympic Gold Medal.

Greatly respect: Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray.

Past Favorites: Marat Safin, Andre Agassi and Gustavo Kuerten.

Despise: Roger Federer. The dominator of the weakest era in tennis history. Also the man who says "The match is always on my racket against Nadal". H2H 23:10.

3 semis and 4 quarters never reached a final. He has a 62-59 record on masters events. His slam record is bad as well, only getting pass the 4R once, of course he won that one.
