#epicthrowback The 2006 Rome final

Today, we go back 11 years in time to an epic but not so well known ATP 1000 Masters final (perhaps because it is a final of an ATP Masters 1000) between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Besides producing the typical Federer-Nadal drama, with Nadal's scurrying frantically throughout the match to absorb Federer's scintillating shots - it breaks the commonly-held myth that Federer below Nadal's league when it comes to performance on the clay surface.

We have alwats believed that the main reason for the lopsided head-to-head between Nadal and Federer is mainly psychological - Joshua Newman (Rovo co-founder)
