Why do we call Spanish Players as Nadal's Lapdogs ?
May 12, 2012, 12:40 am - (1 year ago)
After Federer's umpteenth demolition of Ferrer, I got curious to see why we always say only the Spanish Players are all only Nadal's lapdogs.
Here are the H2H of Federer/Nadal vs all Spanish players ranked within the top 100 (excluded Federer vs Nadal for this purpose).
Federer-Ferrer - 13:0
Federer-Almagro - 5:0
Federer-Verdasco - 4:0
Federer-Feliciano Lopez - 10:0
Federer-Granollers - 1:0
Federer-Andujar - 0:0
Federer-Ramos - 0:0
Federer-Ferrero - 9:3
Federer-Montanes - 3:1
Federer-Ruben Hidalgo - 1:0
Federer-Garcia Lopez - 3:0
Overall - 49:4 (win - 92.5%)
Nadal-Ferrer - 14:4
Nadal-Almagro - 7:0
Nadal-Verdasco - 13:0
Nadal-Feliciano Lopez - 9:2
Nadal-Granollers - 1:0
Nadal-Andujar - 1:0
Nadal-Ramos - 0:0
Nadal-Ferrero - 7:2
Nadal-Montanes - 2:0
Nadal-Garcia Lopez - 4:1
Overall - 58:9 (Win - 86.6 %)
Barring the odd loss to Montanes and the last loss to Ferrero in Madrid 2003, Federer has not lost a single match to any active Spaniard (not named Nadal).
