Nadal remains the gatekeeper of the French Open.

Rafa is the GOD of CLAY, no?

The King of Clay will not be denied, it seems.

9 French Open titles.

4 consecutive wins from 2005 to 2008.

5 consecutive wins from 2010 to 2014.

5-0 H2H against Roger at the French.

6-0 H2H against Novak at the French. (Yes guys, it's even worse than Roger's record against Nadal at the French)

People criticise Federer for his inability to beat Nadal at the French..... its pretty funny how people keep harping on how Djokovic is better than Federer as a clay courter because he handles Nadal better on clay when Novak can't beat Nadal on the biggest stage for clay either.

Roger was dealing with peak or prime clay Nadal in those 4 finals he lost. Djokovic is dealing with post-prime clay Nadal and still can't do anything about it. At this rate, who knows if Djokovic will even win the French Open...

Federer won his sole French Open in 2009 due to Soderling's help.

But I wonder if Novak will be that lucky to have such help.... And even then, he'll have to survive until the final..

Yeah, I think Rafa will definitely surpass Roger in the slam count in the next 2 years. Congrats Rafa fans.
