It's not like he hasn't beaten him in a major for 6 years
unlike somebody who hasn't been able to do so against Rafa...
Novak is 11-5 vs Rafa on hard but Rafa has done better with 12-2 vs Novak on clay. Rafa leads the head to head in all clay tournaments except for Madrid where they're tie: 1-1. Funnily enough, the one event on hard (other than Olympics) where Rafa leads Novak is WTF: 2-1. Who would have thought ?? and of course, they're tie at USO.
