Re: Federer 2008 or Nadal 2011?

Nadal 2011 by a country mile. Federer had a terrible 2008 season, that was derailed by mono/lack of practise all the way into the early hardcourt season, and then he had a bad back that derailed the post USO romp. He did have 2 incredible throwback matches in the USO semis and finals that year (despite playing very mediocre tennis up till that point), but by and large he was very much a shell of himself. It wasn't until the claycourt season in 2009 that he started to play better again.

Rafa meanwhile has played under his level during 2011, but then its mostly about one player who has his number. Fed in 2008 was losing to people he routinely beat (Roddick, Blake, Karlo etc).

From a tennis standpoint, Rafa's overall level of tennis is superior in 2011.

And is it Federer's fault that he had two different "turfs" for himself at both Wimbledon and the USOpen as opposed to Nadal who has dominated the one in Paris?
I always believed and still believe that Federer is a better Hard court player than Grass courter. Federer defended his own turf in 2008, he won the USopen beating Djokovic and Murray and lost his "other" turf at Wimbledon 7-9 in the fifth. Nadal got his ass handed to him by Djokovic in a four setter in which not even one set went to even twelve games. Go figure.

I do think Nadal's 2011 will pip Federer 2008, though it doesnt matter much - neither player will really want to remember this year. But to say Nadal kept his turf is not the reason. Federer did too. But Nadal was more consistent throughout the year and didnt lose to many mugs before the USO like Federer did in 2008.

The fact that Federer was very close to defending Wimbledon in 2008 makes his year better. He almost won a second slam in 2008. Darkness was not his best friend....

Nadal was not close to winning a second slam this year, he only won a set in the Wimbledon and USO finals.

Nah Nadal wasn't bad in this year just someone played much better. But Federer and that season wasn't too different I guess.

Re: Federer 2008 or Nadal 2011?

Federer was able to win 3 slams after 2008. He still had game and motivation despite Nadal owning him in 2008. Not so sure about Nadal after this year. Which could prove Federer was better in 2008 than Nadal this year.

You may need to get your eyes checked. Your blind hatred of other posters has clouded your vision.
I'm guessing you cannot comprehend English. I wasn't referring to your post in this thread, I was referring to your bad rep you clown.
