    P.S. *** If this has been asked/discussed before, you can send me the link to the thread. I'm still new around here and not exactly sure what search terms to use to find exactly what I'm looking for that addresses the question in my topic.

    I also don't want to start any fights about this. My only mission is to get a list of names of the right-handed 1HBH guys who have even just 1 win against Rafa.

    This is a purely stat topic ---- not an argument/debate topic :-|

    This is great stuff so far and way beyond my knowledge and attention to detail when it comes to this kind of detailed stat.

    Thanks to all of you that have helped me on my list so far.
