Federer chases Masters 1000 record

After defeating Rafael Nadal in the semifinals of the 2012 BNP Paribas Open on Saturday, Federer is into yet another final. He faces John Isner in the finals of Indian Wells, going for his 73rd career title, in his 103rd career final. Adding more to modern day history, the Swiss maestro is chasing the record for Masters 1000 titles.

Federer has won 18 titles at Masters 1000 tournaments, one shy of the record, 19, belonging to Rafael Nadal. While the Spaniard’s titles have come mostly on clay, the breakdown of surfaces for Federer is more versatile. Nadal has won 14 of his 19 titles on clay, 4 on outdoor hard, and a single title on indoor hard. The Swiss maestro has won 2 titles on indoor hard, 11 on outdoor hard, 5 on clay, and taking it further, 6 titles at the year end World Tour Finals (2 outdoor, 4 indoor).
