Winning 3 AMS in a row

Has never been done before, to the extent of my knowledge. Nadal has a good shot at doing it, and keep breaking ATP records at just 22.

I can't say about slams, but I doubt we will see someone breaking his AMS records in decades after he retires.

No. Not to my knowledge. Maybe Muster? :shrug:

Muster had a great shot at it because of his wins in clay, but didn't win Hamburg, and the year he won Miami it was his last title.

Also checked Fed, Sampras, Agassi, Kuerten and nothing.

I know. He was the most likely to do it, but didn't :o

Muster didn't play Hamburg in 95 or 96.

Nor did Becker, Edberg or Rios. I don't think I am forgetting anyone with a chance at it.

3 in a row that they PLAY? Because Nadal did that in 05 when he won Monte Carlo, Rome, and Montreal, and didn't play Hamburg (and came damn close to making it 4 straight at Miami).

Federer won 4 straight, Hamburg & Cinci 2005 and IW & Miami 2006. Didn't participate neither in Canada nor in Madrid or Paris in 2005.

Fed was close in 06 and 07. 06-- IW-Miami-MC(F)-Rome(F), 07-- Hamburg (W)-Montreal(F)-Cinci(W). Nadal will probably do it this year.

...and if someone was ever going to do this it was going to be the best Masters Series player ever, Nadal.

Would have never happened with 5 sets. Master series been reduced to MM when Nadal came and it's not fair.

Are you hinting that Nadal is much better in the small tournaments? Btw MS events suit the slower court players. Only 1 slam on clay compared to 3 MS on clay.

I don't consider Masters Series small tournaments. :o

Mickey Mouse tournaments like Doha, Umag, Sopot, Estoril etc. are small tournaments.

Rafa won 6 Masters Series before they switched to best of 3 finals.

There's only 2 hard court Grand Slams and 6 Masters Series on hard (and 5 on outdoor hard).

4 of them could be considered slow hardcourts (Indian Wells, Miami, Toronto, and Shanghai) while only 1 slow hardcourt slam. Slams suit the fastcourt players more. Sampras is a great example of that.
