Rafael nadal dating history
The 28-year-old del Potro is a Grand Slam champion.
In fact, the only other time he played Federer at the U. Open was in 2009, when del Potro won a 3-6, 7-6 (5), 4-6, 7-6 (4), 6-2 final thriller to snatch his lone Grand Slam title.
A Roger Federer vs Rafael Nadal final is what everybody watching this year’s Wimbledon is hoping for. The two men have played in three Wimbledon finals so far, with Federer emerging victorious in 20, before Nadal ended his run of victories at SW19 in 2008.
And the 2008 final – which Nadal won 6–4, 6–4, 6–7(5), 6–7(8), 9–7 after 4 hours and 48 minutes – is widely regarded as the greatest match in the history of the sport.
Probably the forehand is maybe the fastest on the tour.”As for del Potro, he understands the weighty task in front of him. Just like with Federer, the only time del Potro faced Nadal in New York was during his run to the 2009 title, taking a surprisingly easy 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 semifinal decision.“Now is still a harder match tomorrow,” del Potro said.

“At the beginning I was trying to not have a lot of mistakes, playing more safe, but I finished the match hitting some great forehands.
Unsurprisingly then, tennis fans are desperate for one last Wimbledon final between the two men.
But Nadal has admitted he’s hoping to avoid having to play Federer at The Championships this year, having already lost the Australian Open final to him at the beginning of the season.
I don’t have nothing to lose against Federer, so I did my best game of the tournament tonight.
I play very smart game during the whole match.“Is so important to me beating him (Federer) another time in this amazing tournament.”For del Potro, playing champion-style tennis again is a blessing he had doubts he’d ever experience again because of recurring injuries.
