Default Head-To-Heads where the lower ranked/inferior player wins more?

LET'S KEEP THIS THREAD FEDERER AND NADAL FREE. Otherwise no-one will talk about anyone else except for those two.

Thanks.

Examples include Nishikori over Berdych (3:1), Kohlschreiber over Soderling (4:1), Murray over Federer (9:8)...etc...

What other examples can you think of?

The Kohly vs Sod H2H is slightly different in that Soderling only hit his top form from RG 2009 onwards. Prior to that, the two players were probably ranked around the same, and probably interchanged who was higher ranked from month to month.

Prior to 2009, the H2H was 3-0 to Kohly (with 2 of those victories coming in a final set TB). Once Soderling began to hit his peak, the H2H is 1-1.

Stepanek was 7-0 on Feli Lopez at one point. They swapped ranks admittedly, but still impressive.

Inside/out chip to Lopez backhand, charge net, pick off slice or watch as the Lopez backhand heads into the stands.

Repeat x50 times :-)

Yes. Simon usually stuggles against any French players.

Yeah, it's a good example. A few years ago we had plenty of these rock-paper-scissors h2hs from upper/mid level players:

Blake-Andreev 6-0
Andreev 8-0 Kohl
Berdy 8-1 Kohl
Davy-Berdy 8-0 at one point till a Wimbledon meeting broke it (10-2 now)
Kohl-Sod 5-1, and the one loss was in a third set tiebreak after Kohl had mp.
Sod 8-4 Berdy, but Sod has 8 of the last 10 (plus a win at the Mugadala in Abu Dhabi)


The current generation are perhaps better-rounded so these very one-sided h2hs are rarer now (not always to the sport's benefit).
