Ha ha nadull went on a 5-0 run against fed in 2008 when fed was 27 years .
Fed started losing to his turkeys during that time frame fish n steps(tunder lips) etc. nadull simply took advantage of a declining fed. While Novak is on a 9-1 run against nadull starting from 2009 .
a) It's 8-2 in the last 10 matches, not 9-1
b) Prime Nadal is not 2011 onwards only - his peak is probably summer 2008-early 2009 and as for the prime it's probably 2008 to now with dips in between.
c) Nadal has always had an equal or winning record against Federer - even when he was 17 and even during Fed's 2004-2007 hegemony days. Novak still does not lead the H2H (I'm sure he will get there soon) even having played 30 matches. So to compare the Fedal and Rafole matchups is silly - they've had different dynamics.
Nadal won his US Open final & Olympics semi (in effect the final) against the guy who for him is the worst HC match up -Djokovic. Fed couldn't beat Rafa at the French and (credit to him) capitalised when Rafa wasn't there. Rafa also beat the best on grass, Federer, to get his first Wimbledon. All of this just shows that Nadal has done admirably in both his main rivalries. Losing to Novak so many times (primarily on Hard Courts) is nothing to be ashamed off and he's also won 16 times.
