Basically, in term of preventing you to win this fucking title, Nadal= all of them combined

Federer would have make something like 2 or 3 finals for 1 or 2 titles in the 90s
In this era, it's 5 finals (2005 was almost a final too...)but only one title.
nadal would be anyway the clay king but maybe not like now......

rafa never had real clay courts specialists against him , only coria in 2005 and he lost , but at least coria forced epic matches against nadal in clay , after 2005 coria was gone like gaudio and only was fed ( fastcourt specalist ) and now nole ( not clay specialist ).
