Would Murray have defeated Nadal in AO12?
 
Or the question rephrased - who was more impressive vs. Nole - Murray or Nadal?

He wouldn't have stood a chance.

Nadal with his bitch in slams, in a slam final against a known slam final choker, after realizing Djokovic is gone and the path to a slam is clear.

6-2 6-4 6-4 max.

Well not really....not against Murray in a slam. Rafa at 10% capacity in the SF of USO last year, almost blew Murray to bits.

Rafa's game is a much bigger problem for Murray than Djokovic's is. And the mental stranglehold Nadal has on Murray in slams is much bigger than Djokovic has.

With Novak, Murray actually thinks he can beat him. With Nadal, not so much.

That explains why he has beaten Nadal twice in majors, I guess.

That's because Nadal was tired (2008) and injured (2010) ;).

Nadal would have won easily. Probably in straight sets.

doubt it. its a slam final vs nadal, not a place to overcome whatever technical, metal or physical things that are preventing him from winning slams.

That was yeaaars ago, Nadal is a much, much better hardcourt player now. And Murray, well, he's gotten worse :help:
