Matches that have taken place at the most TMS/all

Here's a tough one to think about.

For example, Djokovic and Nadal have met at IW, Miami, Monte Carlo, Rome, Madrid, Canada, Cincinnati and Paris- eight of the current nine.

Any head to heads match this or beat this?

Can count the defunct Hamburg rather than clay Madrid, or Stuttgart/Madrid event in place of Shanghai.

Don't forget the Tennis Masters Cup and Davis Cup. Djokovic's and Nadal's rivalry has been amazing. They've played each other in so many big events in such a short period of time (they even almost played in Shanghai, with Djokovic just losing in the semis last year). It's a shame they've never played in a Grand Slam final (maybe Roland Garros this year?). That said, they've never played each other at the Australian Open or US Open. Even Federer and Soderling have played each other in more different Grand Slams.

Purely speaking of TMS meetings, I can't imagine that any match-up comes close to Djokovic-Nadal. They have met so many times because they've been the two most consistent TMS performers over the last few years (Federer has been all but consistent here) and both of them do well on all surfaces.

An expected rivalry comes close; Sampras and Agassi met at Miami, Paris Indoor, Canada, IW, Stuttgart, Monte Carlo and Cincinnati TMS events, 7 of the 9. They did meet at an 8th such event, Rome, but the match was in 1989, one year before the TMS started.

Of course, they also met in all four grand slams and the ATP finals, and won a Davis Cup on the same team in '92.

Djokovic and Nadal has faced each other in olympics, davis cup, 8 out of the 9 master series, master cup, Roland Garros and Wimbledon. They are 22 and 23 years old...

Also 20 out of 21 of their meetings have been outside mm250 and 500 tournaments, the only one beeing in Queens 2008...

All that is left is for them to play each other in US Open, Australian Open and Shanghai.

it is incredible, well nole landing on rafa's half of the draw so many times has been main reason they have played each other so often. love the rafa/nole rivalry :bigclap: hope they meet at shanghai and us open this year, then aus open next year, only a thought...:wavey:

I must say the Djokovic-Nadal matchup brings the best of both players on the court, it is without any doubt the best tennis rivalry out there by the quality tennis they produce. They just matchup so well and Djokovic's controlled aggression on both wings forces Nadal on the defence all the time but never blows Nadal out of the court and it always ends up producing some mindblowing rallies. However I do think Djokovic must win a grand slam match to make the rivalry really interesting.

Some other fun trivia: Murray and Djokovic have faced each other 7 times, everytime in master series tournaments (6 different master series tournaments). When will these 2 battle it out on a grand slam?

As long as they have been nr3 and nr4 seed that was almost impossible happening. They also seem to split 500 tournaments and avoid playing in the same tournament if possible.

Yes, no doubt. Some clay matches last year were incredible topped by the Madrid semi. Djoker just can't seem to find a way to win over Nadal on the red clay though.

It's really impressive. And yes, the quality is usually very high.

Another fun trivia:

Nadal-Djokovic have never played more than 3 sets against each other in any event. Such a pity, these 2 would produce true classics in the best of 5 set format if only there were to face outside RG...
