    What are the biggest x-0 h2h's in tennis among active as well as former players, so not the "nobody beats [the guy with the hard name] 17 times in a row", because he won eventually. Verdasco against Nadal is out now as well.

    I think Federer is 13-0 against (edit: ) Nieminen and I really couldn't think of any bigger ones. Are there other x-0's that stand out to you?

    It would be kind of tough to beat himself. :)

    Do you mean Federer against Ferrer? I think it's 12-0. Will David break that curse tomorrow, inspired by Verdasco? Right now, he has a worse record against Fed than the much-discussed matchup with Roddick, who at least has won a few times.

    I never understood why Ferrer is so terrible against Fed when he's beaten all the other top players a few times each.

  4. Only the true GOAT would have the best H2H against themselves.

    Sorry, I meant to say Nieminen.
    I think his second is Ferrer, yes. Ferrer is a player who thrives on rythm, rythm, rythm. Federer gives him different balls, and outserves him by a mile. While Fed's serve helps him get past Ferrer, Ferrer has no serve to get him out of trouble against Roger. Against Nadal, Djokovic he's always getting chances because he's one of the best returners.
