He probably would want this achievement to have been last sunday with a victory in Toronto, but never the less impressive milestone.

Sampras rarely played the clay masters and did very poorly when he did, with few exceptions. Also he only won 11 in total. So no surprise he's way behind there.

When people talk about Clay it almost makes it seem that all GS and M1000 are or were played on clay. He played over 14 years and had a streak of 8 years winning a GS but to only have 11 M1000 is pretty lame.

Specially because he was the former GOAT.

Roger Federer has added yet another milestone to his long list of career highlights, becoming the first player to reach 300 match wins at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 level.

The 33-year-old Swiss, who notched his first Masters 1000 win 14 years ago in Miami (d. Gimelstob), posted a 7-6(4), 5-7, 6-2 victory over Canadian Vasek Pospisil on Thursday afternoon in Cincinnati as he began his campaign for a sixth Western & Southern Open title.

“The Masters 1000s are the backbone of the tour,” said Federer. “I know a lot of people talk about the Grand Slams; we care dearly about them, but the majority of the tournaments are Masters 1000s, 500s or 250s.

“We have a certain obligation to play the 1000s, and I think that’s why they’re so popular, that’s why the people show up because they know that the best players will most likely play. I have a few exempts because I’ve been on tour for a very long time so I don’t have to always play, but I choose to because they’re very prestigious and I love playing them, so I’m happy I’m here.”

He improved to a 300-89 match record at this level, ahead of Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic in the second and third positions on the all-time leaders list:


Player
W-L
1 Roger Federer 300-89
2 Rafael Nadal 281-54
3 Novak Djokovic 220-54
4 Andre Agassi 209-73
5 Pete Sampras 190-70
6 Andy Roddick 157-70
7 David Ferrer 150-93
8 Andy Murray 148-63
9 Tommy Haas 142-102
10 Tomas Berdych 140-85

Number of match wins is not a great thing.
Number of major titles (olympics + slams + masters) is great.
If someone of federer/nadal/djokovic caliber plays without retiring, he will definitely achieve more match wins.

What is important is the percentage of wins.

300-89 = 77%

281-54 = 84%

Rafa is love, Rafa is life.

Masters were not mandatory back in Sampras/Agassi days, which is why their numbers are a bit low
