Why Roger Federer Won't Play Rafael Nadal On Clay

Rafael Nadal thinks Roger Federer is scared of competing against him on a clay court.

Roger Federer said last month that he's skipping the clay season but will return to tennis in time for the 2018 Wimbledon Championships.

Nadal called the move "controversial."

Stats show why the Swiss player might be avoiding the clay courts.

Federer and Nadal have played each other 15 times on a clay court.

In every match but two, Nadal has triumphed.
