Nadal’s Record on Clay

April 30, 2009

As Nadal moves onward in Rome, having won back-to-back Master’s events on the clay circuit, I was reflecting on Nadal’s overall record on clay.  He could retire today and still be counted as the greatest clay-court player of all time.   Here is the record,

– Acapulco (2005)
– Barcelona (2005, 2006, 2007, 2008,2009)
– Bastad (2005)
– Costa do Sauipe (2005)
– Roland Garros (2005, 2006, 2007, 2008)
– Hamburg (2008)
– Monte Carlo (2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009)
– Rome (2005, 2006, 2007)
– Sopot (2004)
– Stuttgart (2005, 2007)

He is only 22 and barring injury will compete for several more Roland Garros titles.  Four of his six current slams are at RG.   Although his success extends beyond clay, he seems to be without equal on this surface.
