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

Without the baggage of the AO 09 and Wimby 08 losses? Probably Fed.

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

Federer would win, quite easily too if we're talking about the real USO courts and not this post-2011 slowed down garbage.

If it's purely physical and you're watching someone playing six-hour matches over and over and showing no signs of being tired, you'd look at that. - Andrew Barron Murray OBE

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

I believe, of course, that Federer is a better player in the USO.

But he'd lose, simply because he can't beat Rafa mentally, much less in an important match.

Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series, 65 titles.
(Predicted before RG 2008 when he had 3xRG)

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

Which Nadal's peak? Claydal 2008? 2010? Maybe Hardal 2013?

The game bores me now

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

Is Dull allowed to get "treatment" for 7 months prior to the match or not?

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

Federer would win. But not in the case when Djokovic defeated him after saving mps. he would have been tired and Nadal knows how to make him run.
