We regularly publish interesting statistics on our social medias, but it's easy to miss a few posts, so we're bringing back some of the most interesting ones we posted in the last few weeks that you might have missed.

Infographic citing some statistics about Rafael Nadal and his performances on clay courts

Rafael Nadal dominant on clay

We're not telling you something new when we say that Rafael Nadal is dominant on clay. The Spaniard owns the record for the most French Open titles with 14 and he will probably be remembered as the greatest player of all time on clay. Nevertheless, it can sometimes be surprising to realize at what point he's dominant. Did you know that Rafa never lost a match on clay against an opponent ranked outside of the top-30? His record: 136-0.


Carlos Alcaraz has ice in his veins

We already know it, Carlos Alcaraz is bound to have a hall of fame career and should win multiple Grand Slams. Even if he has impressive statistics all over at his young age (He just turned 21), the one that stands out the most is his win percentage in tiebreaks in decisive sets. Alcaraz has en impressive record of 14-2 when everything is on the line, his two defeats coming at the hands of Matteo Berrettini at the 2022 Australian Open and of Novak Djokovic last year at the Cincinnati Open.


Adrian Mannarino and his relationship with clay courts

In general, we can associate French tennis players with success on clay. They grow up dreaming of winning the French Open on home soil. Yet, the worst record on clay since the creation of the ATP Tour (1990) is owned by a French player: Adrian Mannarino. His win percentage on clay is atrocious, sitting at only 21.9%. A surprising statistic for a top-30 player, not taking into account his playstyle of course.


Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal don't like to share in Rome

Since the arrival of the Spaniard phenomenon Rafael Nadal on the circuit in 2005, Rafa and Novak Djokovic shared almost all the titles at the Rome Masters 1000 tournament. Combined, they won a total of 16 titles out of 19 tournaments between 2005 and 2023. The only 3 titles they dropped being in 2016 (Andy Murray), 2017 (Alexander Zverev) and 2023 (Daniil Medvedev).


Iga Swiatek = a safe bet in finals

Iga Swiatek currently dominates the women's professional tour, she leads her closest rival Aryna Sabalenka by more than 3000 points. One of the factor that might explain that domination is surely her performances when she reaches the last stage of a tournament. Swiatek has an impressive record of 27-4 in finals since the beginning of her career and is currently on a 8-wins streak, the latest coming last week in Madrid.
