Overall he's a 112-37.

Since 2005, he's 57-9 with 7 of those 9 loses coming at the hands of some guy named Rafael Nadal.

What's crazier is the fact that Rafa is the man to beat on this surface, a fact that I will never deny * Roger is the man*. But there are so many threads trying to discredit Roger's clay court game. In a case like this, I would gladly crown Roger 2nd best on the dirt.

7 of 9 loses coming to the same man, and only wining 8 sets. That includes the Hamburg victory last year. A part of me is realistic and another part believes he can bring his game together in 3 of the most important sets in France, against the best there is on clay.

Yea, Federer really sucks on clay...he should retire, switch to a larger racket, get a 2 HBH, or something.

The 1st few sentences of the 2nd paragraph ignore the context of: who else has been able to take more sets off of Nadal than Fed? Who's played him better? No-one.

Combined, it would have to be Coria with 3 sets, and we know how that story goes,

*= losses

2005:

Igor Andreev: 2 *
Gaston Gaudio : 2 *
Augustin Caleri: 1
Richardo Melo: 1
Alberto Martin: 1
Richard Gasquet: 1
Guillermo Coria: 1 (Monte Carlo) 2 (Rome)
Sebastian Grosjean: 1
Andres Seppi: 1 (Davis Cup)
Roger Federer: 1
Mariano Puerta: 1
Tomas Berdych: 1


2006

Roger Federer: 1 (Monte Carlo), 1 (Roland Garros), 2 ( Rome)
Jarko Niemenin: 1
Carlos Moya: 1
Paul Henri-Mathiu: 1
Lleyton Hewitt: 1

2007:
Nikolay Davydenko: 1
Lleyton Hewitt: 1
Roger Federer: 2* (Hamburg), 1 ( Roland Garros)

So basically Fed's played him as good or better than anyone else ever has, except early 2005.

Overall, you can cut that crap out about David Ferrer is the #2 player on clay. In your mind he might be, but facts prove otherwise.

Ok, fair enough there, I overlooked him (my fault, it was bolded). But still, he's done well.
