Nadal in clay finals
 
36-5. Lost twice to Fed, twice to Nole and today. Darn impressive.

djones 02-10-2013 04:36 PM

Yeah I know, should have been 37-4 by now though.

No he shouldn't, sorry.

Zeballos is 1-1 vs. Nadal on clay now. I think he is the new clay GOAT.

Yes, pretty unique. And one can be forgiven for losing a final after 7 months off.

Fiji 02-10-2013 05:06 PM

The days he only lost to all time greats like Federer and Djokovic(he is 6 slam winner so already an all time great) in clay finals seem to be history. Now he can lose to players who have never won a title before like Zeballos.:lol:

Ico 02-10-2013 05:06 PM



"But I am clay God, no?"

veroniquem 02-10-2013 05:09 PM

Yes, he is! He's overdoing it this week with finals in doubles and singles. He should focus on the singles only in Brazil.

weird that they were all in odd numbered years too

Great, something else for him to be superstitious about!

DropShotArtist 02-10-2013 06:30 PM

This is how Nadal maintains such great H2H's against the other top guys. He only faces them when he's playing his absolute best. Many of his losses get spread amongst no-name opponents. And if he's playing his best going into playing a top guy and finds himself losing, then a sudden "injury" appears. That's the Nadal formula for greatness.

sportsfan1 02-10-2013 06:31 PM

Thanks for the stats, saved me some time.

His only RG loss was in an odd year as well. Novak smiles.

Someone won the Career Slam the last time Nadal lost at RG early in a upset.

veroniquem 02-10-2013 07:20 PM

This seems hard to believe but it was the first time on the pro tour Rafa lost a clay final to a non top player. Until now, the only clay finals he had lost were to Fed and Djoko: both current/future #1 . Does that mean Zeb is gonna make it to #1 now? :shock:

That would be an "odd" coincidence (pun intended) to say the least... but still WAY too early to call.

Clearly a butt hurt *******, I'm sure his 11 GS titles were all flukes too

rafafan20 02-10-2013 09:17 PM
