Re: What previous rivalry matches Federer-Nadal

Tennis did not exist before Federer and Nadal.

Best rivalry of all time.

Lendl vs Gilbert
Moya vs Vicente

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Agassi vs Sampras, without doubt was one great rivalry! Federer and Nadal are soon following on those trends.Only if Federer would win atleast more that one match against Nadal!

Re: What previous rivalry matches Federer-Nadal

The much-heralded Sampras-Agassi rivalry was hampered by the fact that they were rarely on top of their games at the same time. Only in 1994-95 were they both playing at something like their peak level.

There are many things that make the Federer-Nadal rivalry so interesting:

1) Two VERY different playing styles.
2) Both are playing at their peak level in 2005 and 2006. Clearly the no.1 and no.2 players in the world.
3) The fact that Nadal seems to be the only thing standing between Federer and the "greatest of all time" tag.
4) The fact that the no.2. player has actually been dominating their rivalry so far.
5) The most talented player of all time against the fittest grinder of all time.
