QUIZ: Can you name everyone Rafael Nadal defeated on his historic 81-match clay winning streak?

According to Novak Djokovic, beating Rafael Nadal at Roland Garros is the toughest challenge in all of sport. 

If someone as capable as Djokovic says that, we can probably believe it.

I’s not all that tough to believe either. Nadal’s record on clay is, frankly, imperious. He has a win% of over 92% and has only lost 40 matches in total on the surface in his entire career.

As unbeatable as he seems now though, there was a spell earlier in his career when he looked like he was never going to lose again on the red dirt.

That came between 2005 and 2007 when Nadal won a staggering 81 matches in a row on his favoured surface.

But how well do you remember it, or how well do you know your tennis from that era?

Be warned, though, it is pretty fiendish. If you’re getting anything above 55%, you’re batting above average.

Good luck with this one in the meantime, and don’t forget to tweet us your scores @tennisbuzzblog.
