Federer-Nadal is the best.
Federer-Djokovic matches are the best to watch though.

Watch all the 'tennis fans' suggest it should be Djokovic - Federer :facepalm:

It's Fedal, they had something 'special', hard to say what it was exactly. Just contrasts, the subtle, and almost unbeatable Federer, and the beast that is Nadal as his nemesis.

Only thing Djokovic-Nadal lacks, because if you look at the numbers, a case could be made they surpassed that rivalry already. But I don't think anyone would suggest that in the tennis world.

the only 'special' thing about fedal matches is nadal's amazing consistency when moonballing to fed's backhand.

How am I first vote for Djokovic-Fed?
It might not be where too many meaningful matches happen, but is nearly always ultra high quality and dramatic (Though Fed was pretty bad in this week's edition)

Fedal because it has 50% Fedgoat in it. Fedovic lacks the epic matches

The best rivarly is Djokovic-Nadal (and we'll see them playing each other for many years).

But to watch the best matches are Djokovic-Federer.

Really what are then their USO 2010,2011 and RG 2011 matches? These only happened in wrong round - that should have been finals.

Watch all the 'tennis fans' suggest it should be Djokovic - Federer :facepalm:That's because that is the match-up which provides the best tennis quality, dumbass.

Nadal - Federer is probably the best when it's about drama, but the tennis in those matches is pretty boring: either Rafa moonballs Fed's bh to oblivion, or JesusFed blows Rafa away.

Nadal - Djokovic is just endless grinding that produces like 5 entertaining shots per match.

So here are Fedalovic epic matches in terms of drama and quality:

Federer - Nadal:

2006 F Rome MS 6-7(0) 7-6(5) 6-4 2-6 7-6(5) Nadal
2007 F Wimbledon 7-6(7) 4-6 7-6(3) 2-6 6-2 Federer
2008 F Wimbledon 6-4 6-4 6-7(5) 6-7(8) 9-7 Nadal
2009 F Australian Open 7-5 3-6 7-6(3) 3-6 6-2 Nadal

Federer - Djokovic:

2010 SF US Open 5-7 6-1 5-7 6-2 7-5 Djokovic
2011 SF Roland Garros 7-6(5) 6-3 3-6 7-6(5) Federer
2011 SF US Open 6-7(7) 4-6 6-3 6-2 7-5 Djokovic

Nadal - Djokovic:

2009 SF Madrid MS 3-6 7-6(5) 7-6(9) Nadal
2012 F Australian Open 5-7 6-4 6-2 6-7(5) 7-5 Djokovic

There were a lot of quality matches between these 3 but above listed had something epic/historical in them.

So if you judge rivalry by amount of epic matches here u go:
1.Federer - Nadal
2.Federer - Djokovic
3.Nadal - Djokovic

Djokovic vs Federer

It used to be Djokovic and Nadal when Djokovic was more aggressive, but nowadays its just a grindfest.

...according to you. Just because you don't like their way of playing, I find much more entertaining shots in a Nadal match than in Fed-Nole matches, those incredible gets from Nadal, you just don't get that from anyone else. Add the forehand, but I'll stop now.

Just look at the matches, what stage they have occured and stuff... sorry, but listing Djokovic-Federer makes as much sense as naming Murray-Nadal

In terms of the best atmosphere, certainly Federer-Nadal. In terms of quality of tennis, Federer-Djokovic.

You are a hater. Andy Mugray would be GOAT if he could hit a forehand better than Wozniacki. At least according to Sapeod. :shrug:
