The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing

TENNIS STAT ANYONE?

By Marc Lawrence — In arguably one of the best matches of his career, top-seeded Novak Djokovic beat Rafael Nadal 3-6, 6-3, 7-6, 6-2 to end the King of Clay’s bid for a record-breaking 21st Grand Slam title and hand Rafa just his third-ever loss at Roland Garros yesterday.

Nadal losing in Paris doesn’t happen often. Along with a 105-3 career record on the Paris clay, Nadal was 26-0 once reaching the semifinals at Roland Garros. But Djokovic is now the only player to beat Nadal twice here.

Even more amazing is the fact the Nadal was a -2.75 favorite over TOP SEEDED Djokovic.

Just sayin’.
