Re: Playing to seeds in Masters Series events - 2012 MC

Madrid's 14 of the top 16 players making the third round tied the best all time, which came in Paris 2009.

It also featured the 105th final without a top-2 seed, and the 14th such final in the event's history, tying it with Paris and Canada.

Rome saw the 23rd 1 v. 2 final, and the third at the event ('06, '11).
It also tied three other event records; the three of top four in the semifinals also tied an event record, occurring for a fifth time, and third in the past four seasons. The six top-eight quarterfinalists equalled Rome '93, and the 12 top-16 players in R3 equalled Rome '90.

Re: Playing to seeds in Masters Series events - 2011 Complete!

For the fourth time in five years, and the sixth overall, three of the top four seeds made the semifinals of Indian Wells, with only Andy Murray, who lost first round, missing out.

A similar thing happened in Miami, with three of the top four making the semifinals for the third time in event history, with Federer being the odd man out this time.

The 20th ever #1 v. #2 masters final was also the fourth such matchup in Monte Carlo.

Re: Playing to seeds in Masters Series events - Shanghai 2011

This was the 104th final without a top 2 seed, the 14th in Paris, tying it with Canada for the most.

This event did set a new Paris record for top 8 seeds into the QFs, with 6 of the 8 making it, surpassing the previous best of 5.

Re: Playing to seeds in Masters Series events - Cincinnati 2011

No changes this week: 2 out of 8 top seeds in the QFs is a Shanghai event record, but not a tournament record, as it is behind Stuttgart 1997.

Re: Playing to seeds in Masters Series events - Rome 2011

7 out of 8 top seeds in the QFs tied the Cincinnati event record, set in '99. Otherwise, no changes.

Re: Playing to seeds in Masters Series events - Monte Carlo 2011

Eventually got around to updating these:

Madrid and Rome were the 20th and 21st #1 v. #2 finals in TMS events, and mark the second and third such finals this season. Only one previous year, 1995, has had three 1 v. 2 finals, so if any of the remaining events yields one this year, we will have a new record (those three, like this year, were all between the same players, in that case, Agassi v. Sampras)


Both Madrid and Rome tied the tournament record for top 4 seeds in the semis, with three of the top 4. In fact, evey single TMS tournament this season has had 3 of the top 4. This is really a sign of the dominance at the top of the game: before 2008, there had been just 14 tournaments with at least 3 top 4 seeds in the semis. Since the start of 2008, there have been 17. One more such occurrence this year will tie 2009 with 6.

Re: Playing to seeds in Masters Series events - Miami 2011

This week was a new all-time high for seeds advancing to the round of 16 in Monte Carlo, surpassing a four-way tie between '98, '06, '08 and '10.

Re: Playing to seeds in Masters Series events

The Miami final was the 19th #1 v. #2 final, and just the 2nd in Miami history (Agassi v. Sampras '95).

Both of the spring US events saw three of the top four (in both cases the top 3) advance to the semifinals, tying the tournament best in each case. Indian Wells has now had three of the top four andvance in three of the past four years.

Otherwise, no changes.

Re: Playing to seeds in Masters Series events

Both Shanghai and Paris had no top 2 seed in the final, meaning there have now been 105 such finals. This was the 11th for the Shanghai event, and the 13th for Paris.

Both events saw a tie for their respective records for top 4 players in the semis; Shanghai with 3 (a new high for the site, though not for the event), and Paris with 2.

That's it for the changes in the last two events of 2010. Here's looking forward to Miami 2011

Re: Playing to seeds in Masters Series events

This is the third straight year that all four top seeds made the semifinals of a tournament; and the first time for such an occurrence in Canada.

Canada moved to the top spot in the number of finals without a top 2 seed, while the total number of such finals rose to 103.

Re: Playing to seeds in Masters Series events

Madrid had the 18th #1 v. #2 final in Masters Series history and the 5th such final at Madrid Outdoors/Hamburg, an event record. Other than that, no changes.

Re: Playing to seeds in Masters Series events

Rome featured the 101st final without a top 2 seed in it, the 13th such Rome final.

One event record was equalled in Monte Carlo, where 11 of the top 16 making it to the round of 16 shares the top spot.

Re: Playing to seeds in Masters Series events

Tomas Berdych and Andy Roddick took part in a small piece of history; the Miami final was the 100th to feature neither top 2 seed.

Other than that, no change in the records.
