None.

They are all mediocre players in his half of the draw. Maybe a more realistic question is which players will win sets against Rafael.

However, if he loses somebody should remind me how insulting I was abbout the players in his half of the draw. I remain confident that I am correct, but next 2 weeks will answer question.

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: Which claycourter in Rafa's 1/2 can beat Rafa?

and since all three are in the other half, that leaves no one that can beat him.

No one can beat him, I'm afraid

I thought that the "two humans" in your post was on purpose:

two humans = Moya and Nalbandian
+
one superhuman = Federer

I think Rafa could beat them on any court. The days of Blake beating Rafa are history.

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.
