Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal are the three only players who have played at least five finals in every single Grand Slam event: with the final played here in Paris at the Roland Garros, Novak Djokovic has in fact reached the final 5 times in Paris, 8 times at the Australian Open, 6 times at Wimbledon and 8 at the US Open.
Compared to Rogeer Federer and Rafael Nadal, Djokovic has played fewer finals and at the same time he does not have a Grand Slam tournament that dominates in this sense, but there is more balance. Rafael Nadal played 13 finals at Roland Garros (13 wins including yesterday's match against Djokovic) and 5 finals in the other 3 Grand Slam events.
A slightly different situation for Roger Federer, who has won 20 Grand Slam titles in 31 finals playing 12 finals in his beloved Wimbledon, 7 finals at the Australian Open and the US Open and finally 5 finals at Roland Garros.
In Paris, Roger. Federer won just one title, back in 2009, where he was able to take advantage of Rafael Nadal's defeat against Robin Soderling, to then claim the. French Open title by beating the Swedish player in the final act.
Roger has reached the final other four times, but ended up losing all of them.
The Big Three new record
After each tournament played, in particular those of the Grand Slam, new interesting records arrive that collect the Big Three or at least one of them.
Also in this Roland Garros it happened and Novak Djokovic reached the other two rivals in an incredible record and never achieved during the Open era. Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal we are probably the best three tennis players in history.
These three champion of world tennis have been dueling and dominating the circuit for years now and year after year they set record after record. We know that the biggest challenge that characterizes them concerns the fight to who will finish the career with the most Grand Slam titles, but this is not the only record that concerns the Big Three.
Obviously there is Roger Federer's record: the Swiss tennis player is the tennis player who has been at the top of the ATP rankings for several weeks and only Novak Djokovic of active tennis players can, sooner or later, take this title away from him.
