It is indeed a rare thing to achieve. Sampras only managed it once, and then - like Nadal this year - with an abbreviated season, in 1999 with 40-8. Federer and Djokovic are the only ones to manage with more than 50 matches played since Andre Agassi went 73-9 in 1995. Ivan Lendl managed a total of five times - 1982, 1985-7 and 1989 (in 1988 he was 41-8) so this is the record Federer is trying to equal now. Will he do it? Unfortunately, I think not. But I hope I'm wrong.
