Top players and which big trophies are missing from their cabinet

Here are the guys with the fewest 'holes' in their resume from the 00's & 90's - I didn't go back prior to 1990:

Federer: Monte Carlo & Rome
Nadal: WTF, Miami, Shanghai, Paris
Djokovic: Cincinnati
Murray: Australian Open, Roland Garros, Indian Wells, Monte Carlo
Sampras: Roland Garros, Monte Carlo, Canada, Hamburg, Stuttgard / Stockholm
Agassi: Monte Carlo, Hamburg, Stuttgart / Stockholm

Fed seems to have retired from clay so we probably won't see a Monte Carlo or Rome title from him

Rafa could still win Miami and Shanghai but things would have to really go his way to win the indoor tournaments

Djoker could definately become the first man to do a full career sweep of the slams, WTF & masters

If Murray comes back I could see him maybe winning IW & MC but not RG. AO will depend on what sort of form he returns with, if at all.

Pete didn't seem to prioritise masters events but RG is his much famed weakness

Agassi seemed to play pretty well at most tournaments.

Praying this thread doesnt degenerate into an argument about Masters relocating and "slots"

But OP's list is correct IMO

Djok is only one with a chance but with the way he's playing now he'd be lucky to make R16 at Cincy

Fed wont be able to do it but he has been closer than some might think...we all know how close he was to winning Rome in 2006 and he lost in 3 in the Monte Carlo final in 2014 to Wawa who hadn't won an MS 1000 before that point.

Well, even Rafa has made multiple finals of the big events he has yet to win. But you're right about Djokovic being the only one who can complete all the big titles. He still has 2-3 more years to win that one Cincy.

Miami is the most surprising to me Rafa never won. I think he was in a 3rd set with Novak in 2011?

Yup. Was also 2-0 up vs Federer in 2005 final. Would have been a straight set win if it was a best of 3 final.

oh snap I think Rafa got robbed in that 1! Was that the 1 where he was nearing a 3-0 win and a bad line call changed the complexion of the match?

I don't remember that match tbh. Had started following Nadal from 2006 Wimby final. Even then it was mainly Slams and some Masters that I used to watch.
