I thought this was the Gospel.

His movement was perhaps the best I've seen from him. Matching Nadal in that area.

2008 had IT in my opinion. The overall factor. So much tension, drama, tennis in that match.
Rafa failing at Wimby and the burden he felt going in that match, like you said his nr.1 goal, back 2 back first player since Borg to win RG-Wim. Federer going for his own records, his H2H with Rafa getting in his head, the devastation at RG against Nadal in the final, the motivation going in this match.
5th set was definitely pretty poor comparing to many of their matches, but I've watched the 2008 final many times, and ironically, set 1 to 4 was somewhat mediocre while the 5th set was actually pretty entertaining. Rafa was just really solid in that match while letting Federer play into his hands.

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

Heard he came back next year to win the title and the trophy holder lost in 4th. Round? Is that true?
Heard the guy that is not Federer has not won any non-clay tournament in YEARS. Is that true?

Re: Nadal would have _________ had he played AO 2013.

Fitness is part of the game and Nadal is not fit enough to compete so no result.

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.

Re: Nadal would have _________ had he played AO 2013.

He would have got down on his knees and pumped his fists as he finally won a match again after such a long hiatus from the sport.

I think he would have made at least QF, SF max.

Congratulations Novak Djokovic on a superb 2015 season!
82-6 W/L, 3 slams + 6 MS1000 + WTF,
11 titles won from 15 consecutive finals


Also supporting: Federer, Tsonga, Del Potro, Wawrinka, Nishikori, Raonic, Gasquet, Berdych, Kokkinakis, Fognini, Brown, Dolgopolov, Ferrer

Not a fan of Nadal & Murray
