With the US Open beginning this week, a rivalry is about to be reignited. The most prominent rival in tennis today is between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
The two talented tennis players have met seven times in grand slam final, in 10 different countries, and 17 times in a final. Their Wimbledon final in 2008 has been described as one of the most exceptional match fans of tennis have seen. However the two have never met at a US Open.
Although the two have met in 21 times in 10 different countries, the two barely ever meet in the US. The last time the rivals played on a US court was in the spring of 2005. However, that may all change this month at the US Open.
Roger Federer has put up a good fight, but not good enough. With 14 victories Rafael Nadal leads the rivalry by seven. Maybe this year at the US Open Federer will be able to lower the deficit, and beat Nadal. And who knows, maybe he can go on to be the champion.
The 2010 US Open began on Monday, but will continue on through Saturday September 4, 2010. Just because the Open has already began does not mean it’s too late to experience the action for yourself, as the championship game isn’t held for another five days.
