Equal? Novak possibly with 2 clay Masters 1000 titles from 2 clay events he played....
Monte Carlo is an optional masters.

And he still hasn't won Rome yet (Roger will defeat him)

So Djokovic in reality has 0 mandatory clay masters this year.

OT: I have to say I am very interested in the upcoming RG. Stan seems to be getting back on his form, Nishikori surely should avenge his loss last year and seems to be more healthy, Murray won a title on Clay...two to exact, and Fognini won twice against Nadal on Clay. More chances of upsets IMO. Djokovic's pressure at the RG Final could level things just a bit.

I said Masters 1000 not madatory Masters 1000 so don´t get your point here and MC is more prestigious than Madrid and even if Novak fails tomorrow vs Roger, he would still have from 2 clay Masters 1000 W+F - best pre RG from any player, Roger with Rome + Istanbul wouln´t be more, the same Murray with Madrid + Munich wouldn´t have more than Novak with MC + Rome F - so no matter how tomorrow ends up, Novak wins best player before RG on clay - based on titles - and how important they are

They all are pretty equal
Why would they be equal?
Only Djokovic and Murray excel from the field. Even so that both missed 1-1 clay Masters, they showed the highest level.
Even if Federer wins somehow tomorrow, Djokovic is more successful this year than him: 1 clay Masters + 1 RU vs. 1 clay Masters + 1 clay 250.

After Bull has won 9 RG titles + 19 clay masters + 8 Barcas nothing anyone else does on clay matters.

Truly irrelevant. Bull has retired the surface.
