Rafa has never lost 1st round in a slam

Interesting fact, I just noticed that Rafa's never lost 1st round in a slam. This is especially impressive considering how young (and little) Rafa was when he turned pro. Roger on the other hand has lost 1st round 6 times (the most recent being in 2003, 5 years into his pro career).

Thanks, I checked out your thread. I figured Nadal had the record, that's amazing that Borg NEVER lost a 1st round in a GS! He sort of made up for that in his last comeback attempt when he lost something like 10 first rounds in challengers

I believe this makes 25! Actually that's within a couple of Borg's record.

Re: Rafa has never lost 1st round in a slam

Yeah, it's an impressive record. Closest was to Heuberger at the US in 2004, went 5 sets. The streak could have ended when he was young, but didn't have any difficult draws at the hard court slams.

Most impressive was beating Ancic at Wimbly2003, when he was all of 17yrs and 3 weeks old ..... his first ever senior match on grass (including futures). Not bad for a "claycourter".
