Trivia - Nadal's losses on clay after winning the 1st set
If I am correct, Nadal has only lost 5 matches on clay after winning the 1st set. One of them was against Federer, 2007 Hamburg final (2-6 6-2 6-0), one of them happened yesterday (6-7 7-6 6-4), what were the other 3 matches?

Nope. Buenos Aires 2005. He bageled Gaudio in the 1st set before being bageled himself and losing the match.

Also Bastad 2003 against Lapentti. He was just 17. (And Barcelona 2003 against Corretja. He was only 16)

Here is a bit of trivia.

Nadal has won every single clay court semi final he has ever played since losing to Moya in the semi final in Umag back in 2003. That was nearly 10 years ago.....The closest anyone ever got to snapping that streak? Djokovic in that epic in Madrid 09.
