Default Nadal yet to lose set on red clay this season

He's won MC, Barcelona and Rome in straights. Madrid and it's blue clay was the one aberration. Winning titles without dropping a set isn't easy so wel done Rafa - clay God in business so far this season.

Last player to take a set off him on red clay - Del Potro.

What is the record amoung of straight sets won on clay?

I think he got 33 straight sets on red clay, now he can get to 50 in RG before the final.

Default Re: Nadal yet to lose set on red clay this season

well he probably should have lost at least 2 now..maybe more to ferrer but the guy has zero confidence against nadal and crumbles on big points

if ferrer did have that belief than things might be really interesting between the two

He won 60 of the last 62 sets on clay.

Only Federer in the Roland Garros final (7-5) and Del Potro in the Davis Cup Final (6-1) managed to take sets off him in this period. Quite impressive, he hasn't even played that many tiebreaks either.

Default Re: Nadal yet to lose set on red clay this season

I looked for Muster 95 but he would play tournaments without facing top 50 players every week and still lose alot of sets. It is a joke this guy is compared to Nadal.

Tomas Muster 1995 lost 13 sets to players outside top 30....
