Re: Player A def. Player B at all 4 slams

From the Big Four, only those 2 in the OP exist. Nadal still needs to beat Nole at AO. Nole still needs to beat Nadal at FO. Nole and Murray have not yet met at all Grand Slams. Nole still needs to beat Roger at Wimbledon. Federer still needs to meet Murray at RG. Murray still needs to beat Nadal at RG and Wimbledon.

Re: Player A def. Player B at all 4 slams

Pretty solid thread. lol the encounters are interesting.

Federer and Nalbandian had a very early rivalry until Federer took it another level and eventually dominated him.

Nadal completing the task on Murray was an interesting one as well. Murray pushed Nadal to a close match at the Australian Open. Suffered a Wimbledon loss than defeated Nadal at a U.S. Open, got interesting but then Nadal dominated from there on out.

Federer and Djokovic is a pretty balanced one. Both men are capable of defeating each other almost anywhere. A pretty close level encounter regardless of distance in their ages.

Murray and Cilic is a funny one. Cilic obliterated Murray at a U.S. Open just once but ever since then has bent over to Murray.

Pairs of players who have met at every Major

Here is an interesting list of pairs of players who have met at every Major:

* Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal
* Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray
* Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer
* Roger Federer and Nicolas Kiefer
* Andy Roddick and Lleyton Hewitt
* Roger Federer and Juan Martin del Potro

These are some of the pairs that have come out of my head.

I'm really surprised that Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal have never met at the US Open. It almost happened in 2010 and 2011 though, but Novak Djokovic had to spoil it. Instead of classic Roger vs. Rafa finals, we instead got interesting finals in Rafa vs. Novak, though.

Andy Murray has yet to meet David Ferrer at the US Open. Roger Federer and Andy Murray have never met at Roland Garros, Federer has never played Nikolay Davydenko at Wimbledon, and never met Robin Soderling at the Australian Open.

Rafael Nadal has never met either Fernando Verdasco or David Ferrer at Wimbledon.

Novak Djokovic still needs to beat Roger Federer at Wimbledon to complete the ultimate set. They have traded wins at the Australian, French and US Opens, but never at Wimbledon.

Djokovic and Murray have never met at Roland Garros or Wimbledon (Olympics don't count).

It's incredible that Federer and Ferrer have never met in a GS.

18 are possible

Also a little strange neither Nadal nor Djokovic has met Ferrer everywhere as he very often play to his ranking and, as you correctly pointed out, is never in Federer's part of the draw.

Perhaps he'll get the missing Wimbledon encounter with one of them this year.

Nadal-Hewitt is about the opposite of this, they've 'only' met 10 times, 6 times in slams though (+1 at the olympics) and 4 of them at Roland Garros (poor Lleyton)

No US Open, Wimbledon though, just thought I'd name it. Hewitt just needs Roland Garros with Roger to complete the set

In fact, Lleyton Hewitt had been drawn to face Rafael Nadal in the second round of Wimbledon in 2009, but Rafa pulled out of the tournament due to knee tendinitis. Juan Martin del Potro replaced Nadal in that section, and Hewitt eventually defeated del Potro in the second round on his way to making the quarter-finals and completing the set against Andy Roddick (losing in five sets).

Just going off topic for a while, also note that in five straight years Lleyton Hewitt lost to Spaniards at the French Open (2006-2010). His loss to David Ferrer in 2008 was in the middle of the Nadal losses (2006, 2007, 2009 and 2010). Hewitt must have a nightmare playing against Spaniards in Paris, he has lost eight times against them (the others being against Albert Costa in 2000, Juan Carlos Ferrero in 2001 and Tommy Robredo in 2003).

I doubt Federer and Hewitt will ever meet in Paris unless they get drawn in the same section.

Federer-Tsonga. No 'Slam' for either though.

I think there was a thread like this already. If I'm not wrong rocketassist opened it.
