In the Era of the Great Roger Federer, lived a man called Rafael Nadal…

And the ever-looming Nadal nemesis fell again on the indomitable Federer. It was a King Vs King match, one of Grass with no defeat in past four years and a 48 match run including 4 Wimbledon titles and the other with 72 straight clay court wins.

Federer has 10 grand slam titles but he still needs the coveted French Open to complete a career Grand Slam of all four championships, which basically includes (Wimbledon, US open, Australian open and French open).And if it weren’t for Rafa, FedEx would have been savoring the pride of being the undefeated defender of the crowns.

Statistically, FedEx is 4-7 against Rafa and 199-7 against anybody else.

So beyond doubt, world number 2 is boisterously holding the title and I am thinking, without taking the credit any minuscule away from the great Fed, that if it weren’t for a King Federer, Rafa definitely would be the Prince of the Court. But the latter is 4-6 years younger than almost all his opponents and is on a quick road of experience which never dumps the seeker.

Way to Go Rafa…
