Seven Players at This Year’s French Open Who have Beaten Rafael Nadal on Clay

Rafael Nadal suffered a minor blip in an otherwise dominant clay season last week, losing in straight sets to Dominic Thiem. He’ll be disappointed to have surrendered the No. 1 ranking, but few would bet against Nadal picking up his 11th French Open in a few weeks.

It’s hard to see anyone stopping the Spaniard in a best of five match at Roland Garros, especially when two of the few players on tour who have beaten him on clay, Roger Federer and Andy Murray, will not be competing.
