Weird fact of the Day

Weird fact of the Day

Post by barrystar on Thu Feb 15, 2018 2:42 pm

Apropos of nothing I stumbled on a strange fact today.  What does Horacio Zeballos have in common with Federer, Djokovic, and Murray, but no other ATP Player?

I can't remember, but did he beat Rafa in a clay court final?  If so, maybe that is it, i.e., maybe they are the only players to beat Rafa on clay in a final?

When has Murray beaten Nadal on clay?

That's it - only four players have beaten Nadal in a clay court final - Fed x2, Djokovic x4, Murray x1, and Horacio.  One to tell the children & grandchildren I'd suggest.

Even more oddly, it's the only final he ever won on the main tour.


How about another very old chestnut which has appeared several times on old versions of 606: what do Connors and Wilander have in common unshared by anyone else, and the answer needs to be v. specific?
