Federer currently holds eight titles (Munich, Halle, Wimbledon, Vienna,
Masters Cup, Australia, Dubai, and Indian Wells).

Who was the last player before Fed to win 8 titles over a 12 month period?

P.S vote and don't cheat. Will be interesting if the winning option is correct.

I think the answer is Lendl, so did you want the titles as well?

Nope not Lendl George, even if he did, he wouldn't be the latest, Muster won 12 titles in 1995

I rephrased the question a bit to avoid confusion

Sorry I missed that Wyver you know Muster held more than 12 titles, if you continue on that he defended a few of them as well.

Muster actually held 17 titles at one stage Wyver.

But over the calendar year in 95 he held 12 I think

12 in the calendar year, yes it was my fault for not reading the question correctly since I was the one who went on about his 40 claycourt wins in a row, and the fact he won Barcelona, Monte Carlo, Rome and the French Open.

The ironic thing he didn't win Kitzbhuel and he could never win in Vienna.
