Rafael Nadal is the French Open King, having won ten titles, with a win-to-loss record of 84-2. But, unsurprisingly, there is a small record held by Roger Federer that Nadal will not probably be able to overcome unless he is competitive in Paris for the next seven years.
What's that about? The amount of consecutive quarter-finals reached by both players. The best streak belongs to Federer with nine appearances in a row at this stage of the tournament, while Nadal has six. From 2005 to 2013, Roger was reached the last eight, holding a 7-2 record in this round.
He reached five finals, winning one against Robin Soderling in 2009 and losing four to Nadal. Nadal reached five finals in a row between 2010 and 2014. In 2015, he lost in the quarter-final to Novak Djokovic. In order to beat Federer's record, Nadal needs to reach at least the quarter-finals every year until 2026.
