The big-serving American has never beaten Rafa on clay, although he did run him extremely close at Roland Garros several years ago.

Rafa has collected the Italian Open title a record 10 times, the latest of which came last year in a three-set win over Novak Djokovic in the final.



  1. Beating Isn’t is no picnic and Rafa will need to serve better than he has all year . Holding serve and winning the tie breakers is what I expect Rafa to do . Vamos !

    • I agree it’s boring unless against someone like Rafa who can cope with it. Vamos Rafa.
