This is a list of the main career statistics of professional tennis player Rafael Nadal.

Historic achievements[edit]

Nadal won five straight French Open singles titles from 2010 to 2014 to become the only player in this event to win five consecutive single titles. Earlier he had captured four straight French Open singles titles from 2005 to 2008 joining Paul Aymé and Björn Borg as the third man to have won four consecutive singles titles there. In 2014, by winning his ninth French Open title, Nadal became the only male to win nine major titles at a Grand Slam event, equaling Martina Navratilova's nine at Wimbledon. He has played 25 matches against Federer and Djokovic in Grand Slams and he leads 18–7 (9–3 vs Federer and 9–4 vs Djokovic).

In 2008, Nadal became the second Spanish man to win Wimbledon. Nadal is only the third male player in the open era to have won the French Open and Wimbledon in the same year, and the first since Borg in 1980. In 2009, Nadal became the first Spaniard to win the Australian Open, and the first male player to simultaneously hold Grand Slams on clay, grass and hardcourt.[1]

He is also the first, and only male player to date, to win three consecutive Grand Slam Tournaments on three different surfaces (clay, grass and hardcourt) in the same year (2010);[2] and across both sexes, second only to Steffi Graf's Calendar Year Golden Slam in 1988. In 2015, Serena Williams also accomplished this feat. By winning the 2010 US Open, Nadal completed a men's singles Career Grand Slam. He is the 7th male player in history to achieve this. In addition, Nadal has accomplished the Career Golden Slam and is the 2nd male player in history to attain this after Andre Agassi. Nadal has won ATP tournaments in 19 different countries.

Nadal has won 30 ATP Masters titles record-tying to Djokovic 30 and has stand-alone records of 45 finals and 62 semifinals.

Nadal has been especially successful on clay courts. He has a 52–8 record in clay court tournament finals and has lost only twice in best-of-five-set matches on clay.[3] He has won nine French Open titles, ten Monte-Carlo Masters and seven Rome Masters, and won at least one of the three clay court Masters Series tournaments every year between 2005 and 2014. By virtue of his 9th Monte Carlo title in 2016, Nadal became the first ATP player in history to win two different tournaments nine times each. In 2016, by virtue of winning his 9th Barcelona crown, he became the first player in the Open Era to win 3 different tournaments 9 times each (also Roland Garros and Monte Carlo). By winning his 10th Monte Carlo Masters title in 2017, he became the first and only male player in the Open Era to win a single tournament 10 times. He also owns the longest single-surface winning streak in the open era, having won 81 consecutive matches on clay from April 2005 to May 2007.[4] Many tennis critics and top players already regard him as the greatest clay-court player of all time.[5][6][7]

ITF Davis Cup[edit]

Nadal plays Andy Roddick at the Las Ventas bullring in Madrid, Spain during the 2008 Davis Cup semifinals. A clay court was specially constructed within the arena for the event.[9]

Nadal played with La Armada in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, and 2011 winning the trophy in 2004 and consecutively in 2008 and 2009, as well as in 2011 and fighting to remain in the World Group in 2005 and 2006. He was not able to play the final of the 2008 Davis Cup due to an injury of his left knee but he later received a replica of the cup given to the members of the Spanish team which played in Argentina, being David Ferrer, Marcel Granollers, Feliciano López and Fernando Verdasco.
