Nadal’s awesome freaking achievements.

Posted by tennisplanet on October 6, 2010

Winner of grand slams on clay, grass, and hardcourt in calendar year: Stands alone.

Simultaneous holder of Olympic singles gold medal and grand slams on clay, grass, and hardcourt: Stands alone.

Most Masters singles titles (18): Stands alone.

Nadal has won his nine Grand Slam titles in his first 26 appearances at the majors. By comparison, Bjorn Borg won nine in his first 22;Roger Federer won nine in his first 30 and Pete Sampras won nine in his first 31.

Longest single-surface winning streak in the Open Era: 81 matches on Clay Courts.

Nadal has a 106–1 win-loss record in Grand Slam play after winning the first set.

The first teenager to win a Grand Slam singles title since Pete Sampras won the 1990 US Open at age 19.

Lost only six sets in winning the three titles namely French Open, Wimbledon & US Open in 2010.

    Clay winning streak is by far his most significant record to date. That one is going to last.

      I agree with that, Banti.

      It took even Rafa 15 years to be the first teenager after Pete to win a Slam, though. So that one may last awhile too, though not as long.

      ¡¡Vamos Rafa!!

      (I wonder what Roger’s record is in GS play after winning the first set? I’ll bet it’s crazy-ridiculous too.)

        Roger is something like 175-0 after winning the first two sets, not sure what the stat is after the first set. That’s pretty sick from Rafa.
