Favourite tennis matches: 2011 US Open Final & 2012 Australian Open Final, starring Novak Djokovic & Rafael Nadal, showing us just how far science can take humanity.

The US Open Final was especially enjoyable, with 'Why are there white spots all over my body?' Djokovic and 'Why am I sweating boils?' Nadal embarked on a titanic battle, concluding with the inferior player, Nadal, entering a sort of delirious state of psychosis. This allowed him to, while showing very little fatigue, consume inhuman amounts of energy, before he literally ran his legs from underneath him. This is truly the stuff dreams are made of.

Re: Endless Djokovic/Federer Debates (Their rivalry)

The only Noledal slam match that was remotely great was the third set of the 2011 USO final.

Wimbledon final was garbage, AO final was ugly and the 2010 USO final was OK but Novak really disappeared after set two.

The third set of RG in 2008 was quite an underrated one.

Exactly, I've been saying this since 2008. That would mean Federer would be a greater/better player had he won 10 less matches and reached 10 less finals, 5 less RG finals.

I hear logic committing suicide as we speak.

What could we have expected from a young Nadal? To reach them in 2005 and 2006? No way, he just became a force on clay, only starting to learn how te be great on grass. Fast hardcourt would have to take longer. 07,08 and 09 remain. 2007 is still very early in his career for him to reach a slam final on his worst surface, but losing to Ferrer is a bad sign. I'll count it, just. Only one I can really see as a failure is losing to Murray in 08, 09 had the injury comeback and the injury during the tournament.

Time to stop this madness about 'Nadal dodging Federer at the USO'. Federer did just as much, if not more of the dodging. But that's what you get when one guy is older and primes don't overlap. Get over it.
Why are you being so defensive though? I just said ' I agree that it is a bit unfair that Federer did not have a lot of chances to "even the score" so to speak when he was at his prime because Nadal wasn't showing up on USO finals until recently but it is what it is. ' - it is unfair exactly that their primes don't overlap, it's unfair that while Federer's peak form on clay coincided with Nadal's peak clay years (w/c doesn't ever seem to stop); Nadal's peak form in HC didn't coincide with Federer's. I did not say it as a minus to Nadal, it just is what it is because as you said, one guy is older. It's completely circumstantial but it was an unfortunate and unfair circumstance for Federer. I wasn't trying to start a competition of who dodged who because yes, I know Federer had chances to face Nadal for the last two years in USO but wasn't able to.

Yes, that cannot be overstressed - any time a rafatard pulls the H2H 'argument', they need to be reminded that Federer, by that account, would be 'far superior' and more goat-worthy LOL player - if he was Sampras-mediocre on clay.

True. Laver can fit into both category . He was placed there because of his serve. While not "big" was varied. Like nadull it helped he was left handed.

The law of nature,only the strong survive.

Real GOAT wouldn't let it go to five sets in the first place. There's a reason Federer's not on this list.
