The Nadal-Djokovic rivalry is a modern-day tennis rivalry, strongly regarded as two of the extraordinary tennis players of all time. The rivalry is the most unique in men's tennis in the Open Era. It is widely considered one of the greatest rivalries in tennis history by everyone and was listed as the third biggest rivalry in the 2000s decade in 2009 only starting in 2006.

The first encounter occurred at the 2006 French Open in the quarterfinals, 57th head-to-head games ago, when Novak Djokovic decided to change the nature of his crosscourt exchange with Rafael Nadal. Points hunger stuck them in the middle of one of those rallies after a while. At this point now Djokovic was having his backhand bombarded by Nadal's loopy, spitting forehands.

Crossing the singles on his backhand side, Djokovic looked like he was dismembering as he kept returning the ball to a growling Nadal until he had plenty of it and moved further towards doubles court and took the ball inside-out, on his forehand, and flattened out his return into a near-impossible.
