Players Who Dominate Certain Players

There are some surprisingly one-sided head to head matchups in the ATP where one player completely dominates the other.

Yoshihito Nishioka beat Dan Evans today in Korea 62 76 and now the world no. 56 has beaten the no. 25 Brit all six times they played dating back to 2016.

Alex de Minaur is 5-0 vs. Reilly Opelka with the latest being a 64 64 triumph at Queens this year.

Of course, Novak Djokovic is 18-0 vs. Gael Monfils, a one-sided mastery dating back to the 2005 US Open. However Monfils did beat Djokovic in 2004 at a Futures in Italy 64 67 62.

Rafael Nadal is also 18-0 vs Richard Gasquet dating back to 2004, but in 2003 Gasquet beat Rafa 62 ret. at St. Jean De Luz Challenger in France.

Roberto Bautista Agut is 7-0 vs Steve Johnson.

Fabio Fognini is 2-0 vs Borna Coric.

Richard Gasquet is 2-0 vs Adrian Mannarino.

Grigor Dimitrov is 4-0 vs Adrian Mannarino.

Grigor Dimitrov is 2-0 vs Hubi Hurkacz.

    Federer was 17-0 vs. Ferrer

    Steve, that’s an incredible one, Fed turned Ferrer into a Gasquet like punching bag. BTW Ferrer was 10-3 vs Gasquet.

    Ritchie is 6-2 vs. Kyrgios 🙂

    And one of them he lost, didn’t he blow ten match points (Wimbledon)?

  • Steve · September 29, 2022 at 7:34 am

    I blocked that one from my memory. It doesn’t exist.

  • Scoop Malinowski · September 29, 2022 at 8:01 am

    So Gasquet should really be 7-1 career vs Kyrgios, that’s incredible as so many better players than Gasquet have poor records vs Kyrgios.

    Good feature on Marcelo Rios, about his new life, and he calls Gaudio a mythamaniac. Gaudio claimed Nadal broke seven racquets in the locker room after losing to him in Buenos Aires. Rios also once said Gaudio told him he punched John McEnroe in the nose in the French Open locker room after he won the title in 2004. Could be another myth from the mythamaniac.
