Re: Top Open Era Match-ups. Nadal-Djokovic already #6.

Incredible how much Novak closed the gap in his H2H against both Rafa and Roger in only one year.It took him time to mature (2 years and some painful losses against both of them)but what a way to reverse things.
I like the fact that someone finally stepped it up, took it from Nadal and found a way to own him but in the same time it'd be more interesting if Rafa manages to win a big match once in a while.Otherwise, it'll end up like the Fedal's rivalry : had the potential to become the biggest one ever but flopped.

Sidenote : 13. Federer 21-2 Roddick 23
I can't

Re: Top Open Era Match-ups. Nadal-Djokovic already #6.

I wonder how Federer feels watching the Djoker destroy Nadal time and time again? On Sunday Nadal will probably get his revenge though.

Wow. Roddick's the only one on that list that failed to win more than twice.

Re: Top Open Era Match-ups. Nadal-Djokovic already #6.

With the ATP promoting the usual faces through surface homogenisation and slower courts, we are primed to start seeing rivalvies as big (in terms of numbers) as the ones during the times of Rod Laver.

Re: Top Open Era Match-ups. Nadal-Djokovic already #6.

Ouch for Roddick :P

And even though Nadal leads the matchup vs Nole, I think with the way the 2011 season went, that matchup has now certainly become even.

The Royal 6

ATP
Roddick | Nadal | Isner | Nishikori
WTA
Sharapova <3 | Wozniacki

Re: Top Open Era Match-ups. Nadal-Djokovic already #6. Fedal up to #7. Fed-Rod up to

The great Federer-Roddick "rivalry" is heading for the top 10.

Poor Andy. Imagine what a legend he'd be if Fed had chosen football over tennis.

the fact is that Rog was def. a baby Nole ... Rog in his prime and again Nole who was just a young kitten. Nadal also developed early and he was able to beat young Novak. Now, catch me now if you can... I think that Djokovic will close the gap with both Rog and Rafa at the end of his career ....

At this rate Nadal-Djokovic will be #1 rivalry of all time by the end of the year. They might catch Sampras-Agassi by the end of the clay season.
