Roger Federer’s ATP Masters 1000 and ATP World Tour Finals Records

**************************************************************************************************************************

 ATP World Tour Masters 1000

 All Time Record Holder

  1. Federer has won all the non-clay Masters series events.

He was able to achieve this feat due to Hamburg being replaced with Shanghai in 2009 and also because the Canadian event alternates between Toronto and Montreal each year.
  3. Federer is the only player to win all four North American ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events at least twice.
  4. Federer is the first player to win three titles at Indian Wells in a row (2004–06).

  6. Federer completed the Sunshine Double of winning Indian Wells and Miami back to back two years in a row in 2005 and 2006. Djokovic surpassed this by winning the Sunshine Double three years in a row from 2014-2016. In 2017, Federer won it for the Sunshine Double for the third time. He is still behind Djokovic who won it 4 times in total (2011 and 2014-2016).
  7. Federer has won a record six titles at the third (second since 2011) clay court ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event, with a record four titles in Hamburg (2002, 2004, 2005 & 2007) and two titles in Madrid (2009 & 2012).
  8. Federer became the first ATP player to record 300 Masters 1000 match wins when he won his 2nd Round match in Cincinnati 2014.
  9. Federer became the only man to win an ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event without dropping serve at Cincinnati (2012). He faced three break points in the tournament and won all matches in straight sets. He repeated the same feat 3 years later in 2015 when he won the event without dropping serve. Again, he faced only three break points in the tournament and won all matches in straight sets.

 

Record Tied

  1. Federer, Nadal and Djokovic are the only players to reach the finals of six ATP World Tour Masters 1000 titles in a season. Federer reached the final of six out of the seven events he played in 2006, establishing a record of 86% of ATP World Tour Masters 1000 finals reached in a season.

  7. Federer won all four North American ATP World Tour Masters 1000  tournaments a record 17 times in total (IW x5, MI x3, CA x2, CI x7). Djokovic is in 2nd place with 15 (IW x5, MI x6, CA x4, CI x0).
  8. Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic are the only players to play 4 or more finals in a row. Federer played 4 finals in a row three times (Indian Wells 2006 – Rome 2006, Hamburg 2007 – Madrid 2007, Madrid 2010 – Shanghai 2010). Djokovic played 7 finals in a row from 2015 Rome – 2016 Miami.

Nadal (4 titles in 2005 and 5 titles in 2013) and Djokovic (5 titles in 2011 and 6 titles in 2015) have since matched or surpassed this. Federer won four out of the five events he played that year (2005) for a record 80% season win rate in ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events.

Impressive Stats

  1. In winning two of these titles (Hamburg 2007 & Madrid 2009), Federer prevented Nadal from winning all three clay court ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events in the same year, a feat that was finally achieved by Nadal in 2010 winning the masters titles in Monte Carlo, Rome and Madrid. Federer also ended Nadal’s longest winning streak of 81 consecutive matches on clay, and Nadal’s third longest winning streak of 33 consecutive matches on clay.
