I'm not sure are you able to see my threads at forum already or I'm still prohibited at forum.

In the left side of my posts there is red circle. Anybody knows what does it mean ?

Anyhow at free time I made some analysis also of 9 Masters series tournaments.

1. Who are recordsmen in winning MS ?

Andre Agassi - 16 times won MS
Ivan Lendl - 15
Pete Sampras -11
Mats Wilander - 8

2. Who won more different MS ? I have to note that this question is not very exact because there was not say Madrid MS at times of Lendl. All MS available now began at 1974, Madrid at 2002, Paris at 1986, Miami - 1985, Indian Wells - at 1987.

Answer : Agassi 7 different, Lendl - 6 different, but may be at times of Lendl there was some which is cancelled now ( I have looked at only exisiting 9).

3. In continuation of the preceding thread. So Marcello Rios did not win GS. It seems that may be he won hundred MS that he became 1-st in 1998. No. He won only 5 MS in his career and all 5 are different !!!

4. So waht did that Alex Corretja in his career that he won MS CUP in 1998 !!!! Only 2 MS in his life - 1997 and 2000. Very poor comparatively. But he won in 1998 -

5. It is interesting the following. Is there any GS winner who never won MS. Of course we can't examine GS winners before 1974 because MS started at 1974.

Answer : a lot of players to my surprise won GS ( some - many) and never won MS

Jimmy Connors
Artur Ashe ( 1975)
Ilie Nastase
John Newcombe
Mark Edmondson
Brain Teacher
Johan Kriek
Pat Cash
Yevgeny Kafelnikov
Petr Korda
Gaston Gaudio

Agassi's won a Master Series 17 times, not 16. ;) (He added another one last year at Cincy 8))
