Infosys 50 Year Data Dive Shows Similarities In Federer & Sampras' Success

Both men won their Nitto ATP Finals titles within an eight-year span

Roger Federer and Pete Sampras never competed at the Nitto ATP Finals in the same season, but according to the Infosys 50 Year Data Dive, the two legends show similarities in their success at the event.

Federer owns a record six titles at the season finale and Sampras claimed five crowns at the year-end championships. But what is notable is that both players won all their trophies within an eight-year span. Federer, who is still active, triumphed six times between 2003 and 2011, while Sampras was victorious on five occasions between 1991 and 1999.
