What would have been interesting is if Nadal was the same age as Federer.
That is one of the main reasons we cannot compare different eras. However, I disagree about Fed's prime. How about 2009? Did he not win 2 GS and reach the final at the other 2 GS? Looking only at one's "prime" years is silly IMO.

RAFAEL NADAL and GRIGOR DIMITROV

Rafa winning at least one slam in 10 consecutive years is the best achievement in Open Era tennis since Laver won all 4 Grand slam tournaments in the same year!


Don't ever underestimate the heart of a champion!
