Re: Peak Federer vs. peak Nadal at the US Open

Federer vs the field, Nadal H2H. In other words, peak Federer is the better player overall, but Nadal has the edge H2H.

Rafael Nadal - The Greatest of All-Time

14 grandslams - Olympics Gold - 4 davis cups - 28 masters 1000 - 69 overall titles
Career Golden Grandslam - Most titles at one grandslam - At least 2 slams on each surface
10 consecutive years with a slam title - Slams on clay, grass and hard in same year
3 year end no.1 finishes -141 weeks at no.1
9-2 in slams vs Federer - 9-4 in slams vs Djokovic - 7-2 in slams vs Murray

One could only imagine what his totals would be if it weren't for his many setbacks/injuries. Truly an icon.

Re: Peak Federer vs. peak Nadal at the US Open

I actually think Roger would have a fairly good chance

I think the competition on HC the last few seasons as well as Nadal improving his HC game RECENTLY skews people's opinions

Nadal US Open game even 2010 was not anywhere near as good as prime Federer HC game. granted, we have the H2H and awkward matchup for Federer, but I still think Roger could and would win if they both played at their peaks at US Open

all I'm going to say is this- Australian Open 2009 Nadal beat Roger in 5 sets in the final. I would argue that it says a number of things- Federer was already in his decline a BIT from prime level and nearly won, Nadal played just about as good on HC as he has in his career during that tournament, AND the Australian Open plays a bit slower obviously that the US Open

if we add all those facts up its hard to really believe that peak Federer would lose to peak Nadal at the US Open. probably fortune for Nadal they didn't meet there a lot or I doubt the H2H would be nearly as slanted. many do forget that Nadal for the first like 4 seasons of being pro didn't make it THAT deep in a lot of HC slams

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

Rafael Nadal

When it was played on grass courts? Or what about when it was played on clay? What is the "real USO court", only between 1990-1996? The court surfaces have changed or evolved throughout history, it's not up to fedtards to decide what is the "real" surface. They all are. Tennis has always evolved. Is real USO tennis when it was played with wood rackets? Or when there were no tiebreaks? Or simply when Nadal doesn't win?

Whoever you like more.

But probably Federer would win 6 of 10 matches.

A more fair and balanced thread would be "Peak Federer vs Injured Nadal". Then maybe Federer would have a chance.

Re: Peak Federer vs. peak Nadal at the US Open

Nadal leads their H2H on Decoturf-2(USO surface) by 2-0.

2006 Dubai and 2013 Cincinnatti. You guys decide who was at their peak in 2006 and 2013 and who wasn't.

In 2006 Fed was at his peak. In 2013 Rafa was at his peak. Nadal won both. Topic closed.

Paella Fatbutt is only injured when he loses, so obviously Federer.

Game over. Forever.
