Sampras record meh.......but Rafa and Fed have played about the same number of ties based on age/time played.

Fed gets the award only cause he has played semi-regularly over his total career..........you got guys like Hewitt and others who blow all three out of the water. Without looking it up I bet the majority of Feds ties were at the start of his career with a huge drop off at his peak.
Well Hewitt is also getting the award. Like I said, 299 getting it. I guess they're making up for lost years since it's a new award.

And sure, Federer played a lot at the beginning of his career but the only year he hasn't participated since 1999 was 2010. So I don't know why some people here are whining that he doesn't deserve it.
