A 13-time major champion and arguably the greatest clay court player of all time, Rafael Nadal became the first man to win a Grand Slam tournament eight times when he beat David Ferrer in the 2013 Roland Garros final. He is the first man to win at least one Grand Slam title for nine consecutive years. Nadal won four straight French Open titles from 2005 to 2008. Nadal repeated as Roland Garros champion from 2010-2013. He compiled a 31-0 record at Roland Garros until his stunning loss to Robin Soderling in the round of 16 in 2009, which remains his only loss in a best-of-five set clay-court match.  From April 2005 through May 2007, Nadal won 81 consecutive matches on clay, a single-surface winning streak that stands as an Open Era record. Nadal defeated his rival Roger Federer in the 2008 Wimbledon final, considered one of the greatest matches of all time, and in doing so became the first man since Bjorn Borg in 1980 to win at Roland Garros and Wimbledon in the same year.
