It is no surprise that Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic are the three players who top the list for the most match wins at ATP tournaments. 

While the ‘Big Three’ have dominated at the four Grand Slam tournaments like no other players in the history of men’s tennis, they have also enjoyed huge success at ATP Tour events.

Here, we look at the most match victories earned by male players at a single tournament outside the Grand Slams in the Open Era.

Roger Federer – 75 (Basel)

Federer won a remarkable 75 matches at the Swiss Indoors, which is the highest total for any player at a single ATP Tour tournament.

The Swiss legend secured a record 10 titles at the event staged in his home city of Basel, with his first triumph coming in 2006.

Fittingly, Federer won the last of his 103 ATP singles titles at the Swiss Indoors in 2019, when he defeated Alex de Minaur in his final title match in tennis.

Rafael Nadal – 73 (Monte Carlo)

Nadal‘s record at all of the sport’s biggest clay-court tournaments is imperious, but his 73 wins at the Monte Carlo Masters is the most he has compiled at any single best-of-three set event.

The Spanish icon holds an astonishing 92% (73-6) win rate in Monte Carlo and won 46 straight matches and eight consecutive titles at the tournament between 2005 and 2013.

The ‘King of Clay’ claimed his first Masters 1000 crown in Monaco in 2005 at the age of 18, while his record-extending 11th and most recent triumph came in 2018.

Rafael Nadal – 70 (Italian Open)

Nadal’s three-set opening round victory over Zizou Bergs at the 2024 Italian Open last week was his 70th win at the ATP Masters 1000 tournament.

The 22-time Grand Slam champion has secured a record 10 titles in Rome, where he triumphed on his debut appearance in 2005.

The former world No 1, who has lost only nine times in 19 Italian Open appearances, won his 36th and most recent Masters 1000 title at the 2021 edition of the clay-court event.

Roger Federer – 69 (Halle)

Federer holds the record for the most wins at a single grass-court tournament outside of Wimbledon with his 69 victories at the Halle Open.

The 20-time Major winner first triumphed in Halle in 2003, while he also secured his penultimate ATP title in the German town in 2019. The Swiss won a record 10 titles at the tournament.

Novak Djokovic – 68 (Italian Open)

Djokovic has won more matches at the Italian Open than any other tournament outside the Majors, with his second round victory over Corentin Moutet last week his 68th in the Italian capital.

The great Serbian has won six titles in Rome, second only to his great rival Nadal, and he has also been a runner-up on six occasions.

The 24-time Grand Slam champion claimed his first big clay-court title at the 2007 edition of the Italian Open, while he most recently won the event in 2022.
