Rafael Nadal, one of the big four of tennis, has always dominated the game for a good period of time. He has had individual records with other big names like Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic. In 2010, the king of clay was peaking rapidly despite facing a few hurdles along the way.

Recently, a tennis propagandist and fan of Rafa posted on their social media, proving that Nadal had ruled the 2010 decode by leading the charts with the highest win percentages. It started in 2010, when Nadal finished the year with the highest win percentage.

However, with the rise of the Serbian in tennis, the Spaniard was unable to get a high win percentage for the next year but soon came back in 2012 and 2013 by topping the charts. 

After 2013, the other members of the Big 4, Andy Murray, Roger Federer, and Novak Djokovic shared a few years to their names before the Spaniard came back in the penultimate and final year to close out the 2010 era as a player with the highest win percentages.

This was the period when Nadal was at his prime, winning back-to-back Grand Slam titles, especially at the French Open, and rightfully earning the tag of ‘king of clay’.

Rafael Nadal’s intense rivalry with each of the Big 4 during the 2010 era

The 2010 decade was the era where Andy Murray, Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, and Rafael Nadal, collectively known as the Big 4, were dominating the whole tournament.

No one stood a chance against these four, and mostly, one of these people was set to win the Grand Slam. In the whole era, there have been many intense rivalries among these 4 players, and the Spaniard has a good H2H record against all these 4 players in that decade.

However, since Federer retired and Nadal was out due to an injury, the Serbian Djokovic took matters into his own hands to dominate the roster and took advantage of this moment to surpass the records both of these players were holding.

Fortunately for the fans, Nadal has officially announced his comeback for the 2024 season at the Brisbane International, which is the first ATP event of the tour before the Australian Open.

As of now, Djokovic is a clear favorite for this tournament, but depending on the Spaniard’s form, the predictions can surely change. Only time will tell how the futurewill bes for the returning star.
