Tennis Stats and Record
Masters 1000 Tournaments are the second most important tournaments, following the 4 Grand Slams, on the tennis tour. Masters 1000 are similar to Grand Slams and they are so exciting to watch. Here are the players with the most Masters 1000 titles in tennis history.
1. Rafael Nadal, Spain, 35 Masters 1000 Titles
- Rafael Nadal has been absolutely dominant in Masters 1000 tournaments, winning an astonishing 35 of them. Nadal has won 11 Masters 1000s in Monte-Carlo, 7 in Rome and the 17 others spread across multiple other ones. Nadal loves Masters 1000s as they are an opportunity for him to prepare for Grand Slam tournaments. Nadal will surely increase his number, especially as he is always the favourite to win Monte-Carlo, Rome and Madrid every year.
2. Novak Djokovic, Serbia, 34 Masters 1000 Titles
- Novak Djokovic is not far behind his rival, having won 34 Masters 1000 titles. Novak Djokovic has won every single different Masters 1000 tournament, a feat which has not been accomplished by any other player. Djokovic is so dominant in any tournament he plays in, and it would not be shocking if he reaches or surpassed Nadal.
3. Roger Federer, Switzerland, 29 Masters 1000 Titles
- Roger Federer, the Swiss Maestro, has won 29 Masters 1000 titles in his career and he has played some of his best tennis of his life in Masters 1000 tournaments. in 2019, Federer became the oldest player to win a Masters 1000 at 38 years old, winning his latest one in Miami. Federer might not increase his number of Grand Slams much more, but winning Masters 1000s is a good way for him to reach Jimmy Connors' record of 109 titles.
4. Andre Agassi, USA, 17 Masters 1000 Titles
- Andre Agassi's game was so fun to watch, the American star had it all. Agassi had an amazing serve, a perfect forehand, a strong backhand and he was incredibly fast around the tennis court. Agassi won an astonishing 17 Masters 1000s in his career and he was able to use these titles to further cement his legacy as one of the best tennis players of all time.
5. Andy Murray, Great Britain, 14 Masters 1000 Titles
- Andy Murray is one of the best tennis players, if not the best, to come out of Great Britain. Andy Murray has had an amazing career, winning 46 tities, 17 of which were Masters 1000s. Murray always left it all out on the court and he has played some of the best points you will ever see. Unfortunately Murray has suffered severe injury issues and has been struggling to get back on tour and to his best game. If Murray was fully healthy, he would definitely have a higher number of Masters 1000s.
6. Pete Sampras, USA, 11 Masters 1000 Titles
- Pete Sampras, the master of serve and volleying, was also a master at Master 1000 tournaments. Sampras had an amazing serve, and he won so many titles in his career, 15 of which were Grand Slams and 11 Masters 1000s. Sampras inspired a number of tennis players to work on their return game and he is one of the best players of all time.
