Guys get in their mind how strong he is the warm-ups and that they will have to endure four hours of that to beat him: they are beaten even before they step on court. But that's why I like him. He basically says you are going to have to kill me to beat me." Lleyton Hewitt about Rafael Nadal

^correct when we count only tournaments recognized by ATP

also Borg-Connors from 1-6 to 15-8, Lendl-McEnroe from 9-12 to 21-15, Connors-McEnroe from 6-1 and 12-9 to 14-20 and Lendl-Wilander from 3-4 to 15-7


from older ones Rosewall-Laver from 36-13 to 64-80, Gonzales-Laver from 8-3 to 21-38, Emerson-Laver from 5-4 to 18-49 (including 22 wins in a row). But these numbers aren't 100% certain, totally different sport back then

Default Re: Matchups/rivalries that has dramatically turned around

I came here for Tsonga-Djokovic. Easily one of the most frustrating examples given that Tsonga actually lead the H2H before 2011 and then just kind of relented against an improved Djokovic.

For that matter, just like with Hewitt, Nalbandian dominated the H2H with Fed before 2004. I think he was like 5-0? Such a lead Fed still only finished 11-8.

Surprised Federer-Murray hasn't been mentioned as well. Federer until last year had not lead their H2H since 2005. Now he's up 12-11. I mean Murray was as high as 6-2 before the Summer hard courts in 2009.

Yes, this one obviously. What better to shut Connors' mouth?

Great choice! It's the one that we all remember. 17 times in a row, till AO15.

Another one still in the making is Ferrer-Nishikori, which although features relatively few meetings compared to the others mentioned is still significant in context of Nishikori's successful 2014 season.

Ferrer beat Nishikori twice in 2013, leading 3-2 and did so quite comfortably in straight sets.
In 2014, Nishikori flipped that around winning their next 4 meetings to take charge 6-3 and finally at AO R4 to lead 7-3 (5 consecutive wins over Ferrer). Their most recent encounter in Acapulco F, Ferrer won, so 7-4 now.
This might not seem like much but if you look at all the other H2H involving Ferrer and other players not Djokovic, Nadal, Federer or Murray, only Nishikori is ahead of Ferrer in recent times with more than 2 wins difference.

One of the biggest triumphs in the 2014 season for Nishikori overcome a tough obstacle in Ferrer several times, allowing him to reach the SF in Miami (beating Federer in QF), final in Madrid, SF in Paris (and qualify for WTF and WTF SF), so those wins were quite crucial to his success last year.
