Federer has 6 Masters titles, does Vilas have more than 6 Masters equivalent titles? If Hamburg, Monte Carlo, and Rome were the 3 Masters equivalents then he has only 4. Federer's French Open record is alot better even with both having 1 title, that is for sure. More finals, more semis, more quarters, and his only losses from 2005 onwards were Nadal, Djokovic, and 2 time finalist Soderling.
