With his emphatic win today at the Rome Italian Open final, Rafael Nadal improved his head-to-head record over rival Roger Federer to 20-10 and 13-2 on the clay courts. The 20 wins over the Swiss are also the most victories Rafa has over any player in his career – it’s also the most Roger has lost to any one player!
Before today, Federer, Novak Djokovic and David Ferrer were all locked in a three-way tie at 19 losses apiece to Rafa. But now it’s Federer who stands alone in that dubious category.
Since turning pro 12 years ago, Nadal has some very, very impressive records over the top players. Here’s a breakdown of those head-to-head numbers by most wins:
