Fed/Nadal starting to remind me of Graf/Seles
There are major differences between these two rivalries, but it's interesting to note that Graf was dominating for years, possibly to become the best of all time, then Seles, a few years younger, appeared on the scene.
Seles began her own domination, winning 3 of the four slams, including the French three times in a row, and took over the No. 1 position from Graf, who became No. 2. At the AO 1993, Seles beat Graf 36 63 62.
Of course, Seles never dominated Graf and never could figure out Wimbledon, but I think Fed/Nadal reflects this rivalry more than any other in recent history.
