If Fedal swopped racquets, who wins?

I would have asked if they both played with wooden racquets, but the answer is too obvious. Very different playing styles, very different racquets. Who wins if they swopped racquets?

Discuss.

Federer has a chance to win with his own racket against Nadal with a wooden racket, otherwise not so much.

I support Federer, Murray, Karlovic, Nishikori and some others.

Re: If Fedal swopped racquets, who wins?

I imagine Federer would take it simply because I think with the amount of Rafa's spin he puts on the ball, he'd need his own racquet

Isner Nadal Dimitrov Istomin Wawrinka B. Baker

Not sure how to 'swooped rackets.'

Can the OP give us a demonstration?

I actually had to look up the word "swopped" and was shocked to find:

What is this world coming to?

Fed of course, he has a natural touch on the tennis racket.

Rafa's game is technology. Without the post 2000s rackets his game do shyte when the balls don't kick up. He make too much UEs by trying to flatten balls.

Typical antics all came out in this match: faking injuries, grimacing and cursing, trying to peg Fed, trying to start drama, undeserved final based on an exhausted old man and a joke draw.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....
