Players to beat Nadal at the French Open

  • Robin Soderling – 4th Round 2009
  • Novak Djokovic – Quarter finals 2015

The two players to defeat Nadal at the French Open are Swede Robin Soderling in the 4th Round of the 2009 Open and Novak Djokovic in 2015 Quarter finals. Nadal withdrew from the 2016 championship with a wrist injury before his 3rd round match against fellow Spaniard Marcel Granollers.

Robin Soderling

For the record, Soderling took all before him at the 2009 French Open, only succumbing to all-time great Federer in the final. When he defeated Nadal in the 4th round, it was Nadal’s first loss at Roland Garros after 31 consecutive victories. Indeed, it was his first loss on clay in best of 5 set tennis. It has been speculated that Nadal was affected by injury during the 2009 campaign.

Novak Djokovic

Serbian Novak Djokovic is the only the second player to defeat Nadal at the French Open. The result was far less of a surprise than it was when Soderling beat Nadal, Djokovic even entering the match as favourite. Nadal had been struggling in his return to competitive tennis after several injuries. Djokovic went on to win the 2015 title, completing a career grand slam.

2018 French Open

It comes as no surprise that Australian betting sites have listed a fit Nadal as the raging $1.40 favourite for the 2018 French Open. It would be an upset of some proportions to deny the Clay Court King. If there is to be an upset, it may well just come from Djokovic again. The Serb has shown glimpses of his best in recent times.
