Rafa reached five finals in as many appearances at Wimbledon from 2006-11, but fell short of QFs in five showings from 2012-17. He is bidding to win Roland Garros and Wimbledon in the same year for the 3rd time and equal Bjorn Borg’s all-time record of 3 back-toback titles in Paris and London. Borg achieved the feat in 3 consecutive years (1978-80), while our champ won Roland Garros and Wimbledon back-to-back in 2008 and 2010.
