Re: Best Rivalry

Obviously Nadal-Djokovic. Djokovic-Nadal is pretty close though.

Re: Best Rivalry

Federer-Nadal is the best.
Federer-Djokovic matches are the best to watch though.

Re: Best Rivalry

Watch all the 'tennis fans' suggest it should be Djokovic - Federer

It's Fedal, they had something 'special', hard to say what it was exactly. Just contrasts, the subtle, and almost unbeatable Federer, and the beast that is Nadal as his nemesis.

Only thing Djokovic-Nadal lacks, because if you look at the numbers, a case could be made they surpassed that rivalry already. But I don't think anyone would suggest that in the tennis world.

RAFAEL NADAL

the only 'special' thing about fedal matches is nadal's amazing consistency when moonballing to fed's backhand.

Re: Best Rivalry

How am I first vote for Djokovic-Fed?
It might not be where too many meaningful matches happen, but is nearly always ultra high quality and dramatic (Though Fed was pretty bad in this week's edition)

Re: Best Rivalry

Fedal because it has 50% Fedgoat in it. Fedovic lacks the epic matches

Re: Best Rivalry

The best rivarly is Djokovic-Nadal (and we'll see them playing each other for many years).

But to watch the best matches are Djokovic-Federer.

Really what are then their USO 2010,2011 and RG 2011 matches? These only happened in wrong round - that should have been finals.

That's because that is the match-up which provides the best tennis quality, dumbass.

Nadal - Federer is probably the best when it's about drama, but the tennis in those matches is pretty boring: either Rafa moonballs Fed's bh to oblivion, or JesusFed blows Rafa away.

Nadal - Djokovic is just endless grinding that produces like 5 entertaining shots per match.
