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 ?

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