Thanks for this! It's amazing isn't it how consistently better Rafa has played at Monte Carlo compared to everyone else. The surface there is truly perfect for him but that belies the intense moments in all those matches over the years where he has simply outplayed his opponents.

And he's only 24!

It's amazing that when you first glance at this list you would swear Rafa has been the top player over the last 7 or 8 years. But then you look at it again and you notice that Federer's two tournaments where he won 5 in a row where majors. Both of these guys are amazing, I just wish Federer was a little younger so their rivalry could last even longer.
