    If Novak reaches the final in Paris, it will be the fifth consecutive Masters Series tournament that he has reached the final.

    This achievement has only been done once in history by Nadal in 2011 (lost 4 out of 5).

    Only 6 times in history has a player reached 4 consecutive Masters Seriest tournament finals:

    Federer - 2006, 2007, and 2010.
    Nadal - 2011
    Djokovic - 2011, 2012

    He will also further his record of most Masters Series tournament finals in 2 consecutive years. Nadal reached 9 finals (6-3) between 2008 and 2009 (skipped 0 tournaments). Federer reached 10 finals (8-2) between 2005 and 2006 (skipped 6 tournaments). Djokovic has already reached 11 finals (8-3) between 2011 and 2012 (skipped 2 tournaments)

    Didn't he win like 4 in a row last year? That's more impressive.

    Also, Fed made 10 straight GS Finals winning 8. Insane.

    If Novak makes the final, it'll be his 7th of the year. Has anyone ever made 7 Masters finals in a single year? Both Fed and Novak have made 6:

    Fed: 2006
    Novak: 2011-2012

    If Novak makes the final it will be because he's had another joke draw like he was done year.

    He'll also have been in the final of seven of the nine Masters events in 2012, with a semifinal in one of the others.

    Surfaces are too homogenized.
