The 14 men who have beaten Rafael Nadal on clay since 2005 - in pictures

As Nadal looks for another dominant year on the clay court part of the ATP Tour season, here is a look at the players who have claimed a success over him in the past on the red surface

Since 2005 Rafael Nadal has been established as the dominant force of tennis on clay.

To say the 32 year old has been imperious on clay would be somewhat of an understatement. He had a 92 per cent win record before the start of 2018 and has won 11 of his 17 majors on clay at the French Open.

Here is a look at the 14 players in the photo gallery above who have beaten him on the red stuff since he won his first major at Roland Garros in June 2005. All matches included were at ATP Tour tournament events.
