We recollect the time when the threat of Rafael Nadal developed, flawlessly possessed the clay courts, and ended up not only a risk, but rather the forceful successor to Fed’s rule. Four of Rafa’s nine French Open crowns came to the detriment of Federer. The Spaniard’s 2005-08 run and after that again in 2010-14 at Roland Garros are what blessed him the ” King of Clay ” and an accomplishment that we will probably not see again.

They have mutual respect for each other and seen each others Ups and Downs.In their 12 meetings in Grand Slams Nadal drives Federer 9-3 while leading 6-3 in fabulous pummel finals. From 2006 to 2008 Nadal and Federer played every one of the finals of the Roland Garros and the Wimbledon. That just shows how incredible this competition has been throughout the years.

Federer’s injury concerns started to emerge as he entered in his mid-thirties. Since 2012 Wimbledon, Federer has not won a grandslam title until 2017 Australian Open.

While Federer was managing his own particular issues, Nadal remained on top from 2012-2014 by expanding his own particular record of French Open titles to nine and breaking even with Pete Sampras’ Grand Slam wins of 14. However, Injury bug bit Nadal after the French Open. His First Grandslam Title came after 3 years in the same court of Stade Roland Garros

Year 2017 marked as the revival year for these two titans of the sports as they managed to win all 4 Grandslam titles that year sharing two a piece.

  • Roger won Australian Open and Wimbledon.
  • Nadal won Roland Garros and US Open.

These Two guys are doing great in 2018 too having won Australian Open(Federer) and Roland Garros(Nadal) but failed to reach finals of Wimbledon, with US Open still to come.

I Hope one of these Two players lift this years US Open trophy again.
