With 10 grand slam titles, a half-dozen significant final or semifinal battles, 19 Masters Series Shields, two Davis Cup singles victories worth mentioning and an Olympic Gold Medal, the top 25 moments in Rafa’s career would seem pretty interesting (how can you leave out his 2009 victory over Robin Soderling in the French Open?!).
So let me here, acknowledge some of Rafa’s important career victories that are significant wins, but not truly memorable from a fan's perspective:
- Nadal second French Open vs. Federer
- Nadal third French Open vs. Federer
- Nadal fifth French Open vs. Soderling
- Nadal sixth French Open vs. Federer
- Olympic Gold Medal performance vs Fernando Gonzalez 
- Nadal second Wimbledon victory vs Tomas Berdych 
- Nadal seventh Monte Carlo most all-time
Now, on to the fun stuff.
