Player/ Titles Won
Federer 41 (possible 42 after tomorrows Madrid Final)
Not at all.In 1970 and 1980, there were about 15 non slam big events, not to mention the WCT FInals which no longer existed after 1989.No possible comparison.
However, in order to even things, IŽd pick the Dallas finals as part of a super evnts that included:
Johannesburg ( till 1975) and Las Vegas ( from 1985)
Palm Springs/La Quinta
Tokyo Super seiko
and , of course, Dallas
Now you have the 4 GS, the Masters ( currently called WTF) and your Super 9
