* The Super 9 series officially began in 1990, so here I present the two best records in Canada pre- and post-1990.

** Stockholm was a Super 9/Masters event from 1990-94, but a regular tournament before and since. Becker won in Stockholm in 1990, 91 and 94, but also won a fourth title in 88 when it was a normal ATP event.

*** To my mind this is the most impressive achievement on the whole list - not just because Taroczy won five singles titles in a row, not just because he won six times in seven years, but because for four years running, from 78-81, he also won the doubles event as well. Now THAT is domination.

Taroczy was actually at his best in doubles with the Swiss player Gunthardt, but he loved Hilversum and this is clear to see.

Excelent work.
