The five players with the most victories against the Big Three

We often tell you about their deeds, but today we want to tell you about their defeats. Here are the five players with the most wins against the Big ThreeRoger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.

# 5 Lleyton Hewitt

The Australian, former world number 1 and two-time slam champion, has triumphed 14 times against the magnificent three. Most of these (nine) came against Roger Federer (18-9 for the Swiss half, with Hewitt winning seven of the first nine fights in the early 2000s). Against Novak Djokovic he had to settle for a victory in seven games, while with Rafael Nadal the partial is 7 to 4 in favor of the Spaniard.

# 4 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

The Frenchman has been one of the most exciting and fun players to watch over the past 15 years and has never failed to trip the trio. Tsonga, in fact, took home 16 victories against the Big Three. The most heated rivalry was the one with Nole, who leads 17 to 6 in the direct clashes (first meeting in the final of the Australian Open 2008). With Roger, however, the partial is 12 to 6, but Jo can boast of being the first in history to beat the Swiss at Wimbledon after going down by two sets to zero. Rafa was the player least beaten by Tsonga, the score between the two reads 10 to 4.

# 3 Dominic Thiem

The Austrian has also beaten the three 16 times, but with fewer defeats than Tsonga. With Federer, Thiem even leads the direct matches for 5 to 2. Dominic, over the years, seemed destined to dominate on clay, given the excellent results (final 2018 and 2019 at Roland Garros). With Nadal, in fact, four of the six victories (compared to the 15 defeats) have arrived on the red surface. With Djokovic the partial is almost equal, with the Serbian leading by 7 to 5.

# 2 Juan Martín Del Potro

The Argentine giant, the only one in history to have beaten both Nadal and Federer in a slam (his victory at the US Open 2009) has defeated the magnificent trio 17 times, despite continuing injuries in his career. The victories were divided as follows: four with Nole, six with Rafa and seven with the teacher.

# 1 Andy Murray

The Scotsman, with his 29 successes, was the star performer par excellence of the Big Three and, not surprisingly, was part of the Fab4. The biggest rivalry is certainly with Djokovic (partial of 25 to 11 for the Serbian), with whom he played seven finals in all slams (5 to 2 for Nole). The record with Federer, on the other hand, is much more balanced, with the Swiss leading by 14 to 11 (including the final at Wimbledon 2017). No slam finals have arrived with Nadal and the Spaniard is ahead by 17 to 7.
