Federer 2008 or Nadal 2011?

Which season do you consider better?

In 2008, Federer passed the 600 matches mark and it was when his decline began.

In 2011, Nadal passed the 600 matches mark and it was when his decline began.

Both players defended only one of the 3 slams they had won on the previous year.

Both players lost 2 slam finals back to back to their nemesis.

Federer lost in the SF of the AO to the eventual champ.

Nadal lost in the QF of the AO to Ferrer.

Federer won 4 titles.

Nadal won 3 titles.

Both players were rumored to have contracted mono.

Federer won the Gold medal in doubles at the Olympics.

Nadal won the Davis cup.

Both players lost in RR at the YEC.

Federer lost 4 finals.

Nadal lost 7 finals.


________________________

I voted Fed's 2008 because of the better result at the AO. SF > QF.

I'm guessing you have a power level scouter modified for tennis.

Federer passed the 600 matches mark in 2006 I believe.

Re: Federer 2008 or Nadal 2011?

Too close to call so going even.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

Right. Your posts here say otherwise of your "non-biased" approach.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

You can be as unbiased as you want but your tennis knowledge still rivals minus infinity.
