Federer rivalries...10+ encounters

Let's say a rivalry means 10+ encounters with at least 2 victories on both sides:

vs Hewitt 14-7
vs Roddick 18-2
vs Nadal 7-13
vs Nalbandian 10-8
vs Kiefer 12-3
vs Ljubicic 12-3
vs Henman 7-6
vs Safin 10-2
vs Ferrero 9-3
vs Agassi 8-3
vs Djokovic 7-4
vs Santoro 9-2
vs Haas 8-2

vs Murray 2-6 [not (yet) 10+ encounters]

Are you aware if there's anybody against whom Federer played more than 21 matches (Hewitt's case) ?

Are you aware of other rivalries ?

Re: Federer rivalries...10+ encounters

I wonder if Henman would consider that record one of his biggest career prizes. It's quite impressive, especially since two of those wins came in 2003/2004.

If I lose the first set, the match will be complicate, no?


My favorite Federer and Nadal quotes following their 2008 Wimbledon final:

“But right now, it’s not much of a how do you say? a feel-good thing.”
-Roger Federer
"In the last game, I didn't see nothing. The true, I wasn't see nothing, no?"
-Rafael Nadal

If Hneman could do that, makes you wonder how Federer would have faired in the 90s.

Re: Federer rivalries...10+ encounters

Henman originated the "beat Roger and make him cry" maneuver.

Re: Federer rivalries...10+ encounters

the only real rivalries in that list were between Fed and both Nalbandian and Hewitt, plus Haas to some extent, only those matchups had a sense of rivalry in them.

and currently Nadal, of course.

I guess you're missing the great encounters Fed and Safin had in 2004-2005
