Federer 2008 or Nadal 2011?
Which season do you consider better?
In 2008, Federer passed the 600 matches mark and it was when his decline began.
In 2011, Nadal passed the 600 matches mark and it was when his decline began.
Both players defended only one of the 3 slams they had won on the previous year.
Both players lost 2 slam finals back to back to their nemesis.
Federer lost in the SF of the AO to the eventual champ.
Nadal lost in the QF of the AO to Ferrer.
Federer won 4 titles.
Nadal won 3 titles.
Both players were rumored to have contracted mono.
Federer won the Gold medal in doubles at the Olympics.
Nadal won the Davis cup.
Both players lost in RR at the YEC.
Federer lost 4 finals.
Nadal lost 7 finals.
I voted Fed's 2008 because of the better result at the AO. SF > QF.
