Novak Djokovic has won 40 ATP 1000 singles titles, the most by any player.

Apart from the four Grand Slams, there are ATP 1000, ATP 500 and ATP 250 events held around the year across the world. There are nine ATP 1000 events, namely the Canadian Open, Italian Open, Indian Wells, Miami Open, Monte-Carlo Masters, Madrid Open, Cincinnati Open, Shanghai Masters and Paris Masters.

The tournaments as a whole, in the last two decades, have been heavily dominated by the “Big Three”: Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.

However, without further ado, let’s look at the top five players who have played the most finals at ATP 1000 events:

5. Andy Murray – 21 finals

Andy Murray was part of the famous quartet that made tennis a pleasure to watch in the last two decades. The Brit might not have won many Grand Slams, but he was a force to be reckoned with at ATP 1000 events, winning 14 titles.

Murray has won 11 out of the 14 titles on outdoor hard courts. With his grit and strength-based game, the 37-year-old has always been a top star at ATP 1000 events, reaching the final on 21 occasions, the fifth-most by any player.

4. Andre Agassi – 22 finals

A player with extraordinary flair, charisma and shot-making talent, Andre Agassi dominated opponents with attacking gameplay from the baseline. While he garnered much attention for his off-court activities, Agassi never missed an opportunity to display his on-court prowess as well.

He played in 22 ATP 1000 event finals, winning 17 of them. Playing a lot on the courts of Flushing Meadows, hard surfaces were ideally the American tennis star’s preference. The fact that 19 of the 22 ATP 1000 finals were on hard surfaces, shows his love for the hard courts.

3. Roger Federer – 50 finals

If there is a book that is written on how to play tennis, then the example of how to play every shot would be Roger Federer. The Swiss oozed class and the tennis world was gifted to see him in action, especially at ATP 1000 events.

He became the first player to reach a half-century of finals, winning 28 titles. One thing that everyone associated with Federer was his dominance against most of his opponents. The maestro showed the discipline a player should follow to maintain high standards throughout their playing career.

2. Rafael Nadal – 53 finals

In all sports, there are legends, but some of them always defy the odds to win matches despite several setbacks. Rafael Nadal is one of the players who has been doing it throughout his career.

The Spaniard has won an impressive 36 ATP 1000 titles, which includes an eight-year winning streak at the Monte-Carlo Masters from 2005 to 2012. He’s reached a whopping 53 finals across 16 years.

1. Novak Djokovic – 58 finals

In the 2000s, the Nadal-Federer era was at its peak. Later, the duo was joined by Novak Djokovic, who’s still competing at the top level against the likes of Carlos Alcaraz and Jannik Sinner.

Thanks to his consistency and elite mentality, he became the first and only man in history to achieve the Career Golden Masters, winning all nine ATP 1000 titles in a year. The 36-year-old has done it twice, setting new standards. He has been in the title-deciding match on 58 occasions, winning 40 of them.
