Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal have yet to meet in 2012, they should have played at the Miami Masters, but injury forced Nadal to withdraw.

That 13-5 record though perhaps does not tell the whole story. Nadal won the first 5 matches between these two players, however since the US Open in 2008, when Murray recorded his first win against Nadal the head to record has been a little closer 8-5 in favour of Nadal.

Their matches in 2011 were all close afairs with Nadal just proving too strong in each of the first four matches they played. Murray finally beat Nadal in 2011 at the Japan open ending a five match winning streak for Nadal over Murray

Murray has never beaten Nadal on clay, where the record is 4-0. He has also never won on Grass, where the record is 3-0. Murray’s favourite surface, hard courts was the place Murray was competing with Nadal, their record on hard courts at one point was 4-4, but Nadal has now moved into a 6-5 lead.
