djokovic (2008 AO) vs Nadal (09 AO) who wins?

im just curious, the way djokovic played last year i thought no one could beat him, he beat roger easily, nadal had to go through 5 sets, what do you guys think, i would have to pick djokovic, because it just seemed like djokovic could hit a winner off of anything last year

i love mango juice

Can't really compare but if they were to be playing against each other Djokovic would smash 09 AO Nadal pretty easily in the form he was in simply because of the match up. He is pretty much the only person on tour (not including Nalbandian) who has figured out how to play Nadal.

The way Djokovic played he would beat Nadal, with one question mark, only if he dont get tired.

He has yet to beat Nadal in a big match.

Never beaten him in a Slam, lost both finals they played, and lost the Olympic semi.

Given how unfair these haters are, there's no doubt they're all jealous of rafa's results and achievements! i'm not surprised to see most of those haters voting for djoker even if they ain't a fan...

VAMOS RAFA!

I honetly don't think it's a matter of djoker getting tired or not! of course there's no doubt rafa's the most strongest player physically but it's not what separates the two...

Nobody's trying to start an argument here. Everybody else is just giving their own personal opinion.

Nadal and Novak never played in a hardcourt GS, of course Rafa will always win on clay. He's just unbeatable on dirt, but what makes for instance IW semi or Canada masters semi less important that Queens final?
Novak had good and very important wins over Rafa, but Rafa won the most important matches, that's for sure. I would actually put Olympics semi the biggest Rafael's win over Novak
