    Counting only since 1990 when the Masters events were standardized, no player has ever won the Stockholm/Essen/Stuttgart/Madrid + Paris + YEC Triple.

    Winners of the Stockholm/Essen/Stuttgart/Madrid/Shangai + Paris double:

    2004 Safin
    2007 Nalbandian

    Winners of the Stockholm/Essen/Stuttgart/Madrid/Shanghai + YEC double:

    1993 Stich
    2006 Federer
    2009 Davydenko

    Winners of Paris + YEC Double:

    1992 Becker
    1997 Sampras

    So these kinds of doubles are rare achievements.

    Doesn't change the fact that Kolya winning Shanghai + London is an amazing achievement. Especially considering he's maybe only the 10th best talent in tennis.
