Fed's old and unknown rivalries and H2Hs...

Maybe rivalry is too much, but there are some really nice H2Hs of Roger's.
I searched especially for those vs. former GS winners/finalists and I find quite amazing to see he played against all those players:

He is:

Former GS winners/finalists:

6-3 vs. Arnaud Clement (he stopped Roger in AOpen in 2000 and 2001)
7-0 vs. Thomas Johansson
4-1 vs. Michael Chang
4-1 vs. Greg Rusedski
0-3 vs. Patrick Rafter
4-1 vs. Mark Philippoussis
2-4 vs. Yevgeny Kafelnikov
7-0 vs. Carlos Moya
2-3 vs. Alex Corretja
1-2 vs. Gustavo Kuerten
2-0 vs. Richard Krajicek
1-0 vs. Magnus Norman
1-0 vs. Cedric Pioline
1-3 vs. Thomas Enqvist
0-1 vs. Andrei Medvedev
0-1 vs. Sergi Bruguera
3-2 vs. Albert Costa (2002 RG winner)
1-0 vs. Todd Martin
2-0 vs. Goran Ivanisevic
2-0 vs. Marcelo Rios

I made bold text where i had no idea he played against those players...the michael Chang H2H was a huge surprise for me, since I was under the impression Chang is a tennis dinosaur


Other old H2H:

3-1 vs. Younes El Aynaoui
2-2 vs. Marc Rosset
5-0 vs. Jonas Bjorkman
3-2 vs. Sebastien Grosjean
3-1 vs. Rainer Schuettler (all 4 encounters until 2002)

Any other GS winner/finalist, apart from Sampras (1-0) and Agassi (8-3) and, of course, apart of his generation and Rafa's generation, against whom Roger played ?

Q. Do you think you would have been able to play as well as you played today, or you think you would have pulled out from the game if it wasn't the Masters Cup final?

ROGER FEDERER: No, Roger Federer doesn't pull out. Otherwise he doesn't walk on court (smiling).

Jan Siemerink leads the H2H 1-0!
Poor Feds, he'll never be able to fix this blemish on his career.

Re: Fed's old and unknown rivalries and H2Hs...

Lucas Arnold 1-0

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Jan Siemerink > Federer ==> Jan Siemerink = GOAT

Arnold leads him 1-0 and Squillari is 2-0 over Fed with no sets lost.

Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Who knew there were all these GOATS floating around?



"When I'm asked, how is it to be around Federer, and what is he really like, I always reply, "I wish people could meet him when cameras or an audience aren't around, as he is one of the nicest people I have ever met when stringing on tour. " -- drakulie
