Federer won an all-time record 124 consecutive matches against players ranked outside of the Top 5 in Grand Slam tournaments (2004 Wimbledon 2009 US Open). This streak came to an end against Juan Martin del Potro, ranked #6 at the time, in the 2009 US Open finals. Del Potro was ranked #5 in the world by the end of the tournament.

If Nadal had won yesterday, he would have tied his previous longest streak of consecutive matches won against players ranked outside of the Top 5 in Grand Slam tournaments. His streak a lame 27.

Doesn't matter who you lose to. Nadal typically does great against the top guys.

Nadal clearly has had so many lucky draws. Luck finally catching up.
