For Djokovic, he becomes the first man to ever beat Nadal in 3 different clay-court events. He also defeated the clay-court specialist in Rome and Madrid in 2011.
Overall this was the 16th time these two titans have met in a tournament final and their head-to-head record now stands at 8-8. Talk about a rivalry!
