Sunday will mark the 38th meeting between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal when the two contest the finals of the 2017 Shanghai Rolex Masters (Nadal leads 23-14 prior to Sunday’s final). Known affectionately as “Fedal”, their rivalry started more than 13 years ago when a 17-year-old Nadal stunned then world No. 1 Federer in straight sets in Miami 2004. While they’ve stood in each other’s way – Nadal twice preventing Federer from achieving the Grand Slam and Federer denying Nadal a year-end ATP Finals crown, they’ve also undeniably pushed the other to new heights.

With Fedal XXXVIII upon us, we present some key numbers from one of sport’s greatest rivalries.

1-0 – Roger’s head-to-head against Rafa in doubles (Federer / Wawrinka d. Nadal / M. Lopez in Indian Wells 2011)
