#Tennis: The 13 men who have beaten #Rafael #Nadal on clay since 2005


Rafael Nadal is back on his favourite surface of clay this week as he competes at the Monte Carlo Masters, with his first match against fellow Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut on Wednesday.

To say the 32 year old has been imperious on clay would be somewhat of an understatement. He has a 92 per cent win record and has won 11 of his 17 majors on clay at the French Open.

Ahead of Nadal’s 2019 clay season, here is a look at the 13 players in the photo gallery above who have beaten him on the red stuff since he won his first major at Roland Garros in June 2005. All matches included were at ATP Tour tournament events.
