Indian Wells – Nadal vs Federer – Face off in the Desert

UPDATE – Result: Roger Federer beat Rafael Nadal 6-3, 6-4

Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer have played 27 times now before, with Rafa leading 18-9. On hard courts however, the head to head is in the balance, with each having won five times in the past

Interesting to see also that whereas Nadal was a fantastic starter in his ATP, Masters and Major careers, piling up the titles from a young age, Fed has been a more consistent performer over the years, and if you compare the two by age, they are now at Nadal’s current age quite similar in terms of age.  Yes, Roger is “catching up”!

    I do not believe comparing by age is the best comparison. All players mature at different ages and I believe a better comparison is to look at how they did in Grand Slam events from the time they first won a Grand Slam event. For Fed that would be 2003 Wimbledon and for Rafa 2005 French. Then compare how many times they reached the quarterfinals, semi finals, finals and won the championship and the corresponding percentage. Fed has been in 35 Grand Slam tournaments reaching the quarterfinals 33 times, semis 30 times, finals 23 times and winning 16 times. Rafa in comparsion has been in 26 Grand Slam tournaments reaching the quarterfinals 22 times, semis 18 times, finals 15 times and winning 10 times. Statistically Fed has higher percentages in all categories. If you do the same comparison using just Fed’s first 26 Grand Slam tournaments from when he first won a GS the numbers are 24 quarterfinals, 24 semis, 21 finals and winning 15 times. Statistically Fed has even higher percentages. And if you compare the same 26 tournaments that Rafa has played in Fed’s numbers are 26 quarterfinals, 23 semis, 17 finals and winning 10 times. Again Fed has higher percentages. And streaks, Fed has 31 straight quarters to 10 for Rafa, 23 straight semis to 5 for Rafa, 10 straight finals to 4 for Rafa and they each have won 3 straight although Fed has done that twice.

    So no matter how you slice it Rafa has a lot to accomplish before he matches or exceeds Fed’s numbers.

    Thanks for the age comparison table/chart. It might not be definitive of a comparison. But it’s quite fun to look at.
