Roger Federer and his favorite victims

There are very few players who have been able to beat the Swiss, but there are many who have tried without success. Today, in this article, we see which tennis players could never beat Roger Federersome of which met more than ten times against the former number 1 in the world of ranking ATP. Many of these athletes, who shared many years with the legend, will sound familiar to you.

– David Ferrer:

Look at how things are that the first match against the Spaniard was in 2003. In the Vienna championship, the Basel player instructed a young tennis player who stood out, at that time, for being an earthling tennis player. With a 17-0 face-to-face, the Hispanic crack is the tennis player who heads this ranking. As he developed his tennis, Ferrer was incommanding a Federer that he saw as in 2007 about to fall three times. Only in 7 duels, the one from Jávea was able to steal a partial. Unfortunately for him, Federer won two finals out of those 17 battles: Cincinnati and the Tennis Master Cup. It should be added that Ferrer has always had words of praise for one of the best tennis players in history.

– Mikhail Youzhny:

The Russian was also unable to beat the Swiss in any of the 17 contests in which he appeared against the Swiss legend. Like Ferrer, Youzhny also lost two finals: Halle and Dubai. One of his defeats was due to withdrawal before the start of the match, but even so, the one from Moscow could only steal 8 sets from Mr Roger. From 2000 to 2017, his tennis could never break the good work of the winner of 20 Grand Slams. However, he will be able to tell that at the 2017 US Open he took the legend to the fifth set.

– Jarkko Nieminen:

The Finn was a complete player and loved by tennis fans. Very respectful and sporty, Nieminen failed to beat Federer in some of his duels. Masku’s fell in two finals: Basel and Munich. With no winner to do any damage, he could only content himself with taking a set from him in the 15 matches he played against him. One of the worst marks of this entire journey.

– Philipp Kohlschreiber:

With a lot of talent, but a lot of irregularity, the German will be able to tell his relatives that he “got involved” with Roger Federer. However, he suffered the same fate as the rest of those mentioned, although, at least, he only lost one last round against the Basilian: Halle. From 2005 to 2019, the man from Augsburg fought hard to stay among the top 40 in the ATP ranking, being a tennis player loved and admired by his followers. In addition, Philipp has been one of the few who has conquered a set from Roger in what is one of his houses, on the Wimbledon grass.

– Feliciano Lopez:

The Spanish left-hander signed authentic and superb matches against Roger, but, like the others, he ended up falling in each and every one of them. Closing this ranking, Feli could not do anything in the 13 games in which he faced the man who is going to retire when the Laver Cup is played. He had him against the ropes in two duels at the Masters 1000 in Madrid. Great sequences that two players who always like to see gave us.

Of course, there are many more “mortals” who could not do anything against the Basel star. Then we will leave you a list with all those men who tried to bring down the wall. Anecdotes to remember each and every one of the protagonists.
