Nadal, the king of ATP circuit pressure

ATP statistics once again highlight the claw and combativeness that Rafa Nadal displays in each match and even more so at the times when the Balearic Islands must face adverse situations during matches.

According to ATP statistics Nadal was the leading tennis player on the circuit when it came to playing points under pressure in a classification that is made based on four data: converted break points, saved break points, tie-breaks won and decisive sets won. Nadal, with a ratio of 253.1, leads this classification ahead of Roger Federer (244.8) and Dominic Thiem (242.8), while Novak Djokovic appears in sixth position (234.5). In fact, the Balearic always chooses to start by subtracting in games.

Despite leading the total sum of ratios, Nadal does not appear as leader in any of the four statistics that measure this ratio, although he was very regular, since He converted 45% of the break points he had (250/556) and saved 68.4% of the break points against (158/231). In addition, it was also imposed in 60.9% of the tie-breaks played in 2019 and took the victory in 75% of decisive sets that he had to play last year (adds 68.9% in his career). Again the figures highlight that Nadal is the best tennis player in the world when he plays under pressure.
