Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal

Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer have dominated men’s tennis since 2004. Every player has their own unique legend. The Spanish player Nadal is the only person to ever win a Grand Slam for ten years in a row. He has won sixteen Grand Slam tournaments, including five straight French Open singles victories from 2010 to 2014. Nadal has won 22 grand slam titles to date. Federer, a Swiss player, has won 20 Grand Slam titles, and two Olympic medals, and has held the top spot in the global rankings for more than 300 weeks in his career. However, neither player’s career would have been nearly as successful if not for the ten-year competition that inspired them to reach the pinnacle of tennis greatness.

Over the course of their careers, Nadal and Federer have faced off 38 times, and from 2005 to 2009, they shared the honor of being ranked as the top two tennis players in the world for an incredible six years in a row. Sebastian Fest, a well-known international sports writer, narrates the narrative of Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer’s rivalry in Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, drawing on facts from his many interactions with both athletes over the last 10 years. Fest creates a distinctive history of two of the greatest tennis players by documenting their individual victories and defeats, hopes and disappointments, and interactions with their competitors.

Since 2015, Sebastian Fest has served as the Chief Sports Editor for the Argentine newspaper La Nacion. He formerly held the same role for the German news agency DPA’s Spanish Service since 2000. Fest has worked with publications such as Rolling Stone, Newsweek, Weltwoche, and FAZ. He wrote Enredados (Buenos Aires, 2009) about Argentina’s Davis Cup tragedy and Ni Rey ni D10s: Lionel Messi with Alexandre Julliard.
