To answer the thread properly, I've never seen another player on the list play as well as peak Federer. At his best, I would go as far as to say that every one of his shots was a weapon (consider his backhand finesse), which was pretty much unheard of prior to his arrival. It's really bizzare to consider how many different ways he could beat guys on a tennis court.

I agree that there are surfaces to consider and different players, namely Djokovic and Nadal, who shine on certain surfaces, but if you're looking for overall greatness, in any sense of the phrase, it's Roger Federer.

Federer's peak is overrated. He couldn't beat Babydal at his peak. Djokovic is the best player at his peak (the first half of 2011).

No I am not, and the question being at his peak appear to be pretty straightforward.

As for who's the best at his peak, the only answer that is a credible one is obviously Federer, anyone who is not a delusional No2e fangirl or worse, a Rafatard, will tell you that.

Who is better now? Well look at the ranking. Is Federer not #1? Sure looks like he is. And when you look at their respective records this year (61-8; 6 titles for Federer / 60-11; 3 titles for No2e) it is difficult to pick No2e over Federer.

Mind you, some idiotic fangirls will claim that Nole 2011 was better than Federer 2006 even if the W-L ratio and titles won clearly show Federer had a better year, so nothing would surprise me. Like you said, this is MTF where ridiculous statements are made on a regular basis...

Nadal's RG 2008 will never be topped as far as peak level of tennis in a grand slam is concerned. It was just inhuman. Never lost a set and gave Noserer the biggest humiliation of his career. It was awesome stuff.

Answer you're looking for is Nalbandian.

Since when is pushing and running around like a headless chicken peak tennis? Clay is an inferior surface and therefor peak tennis on it is inferior too. Also you can't humiliate a guy who was having the worst year of his career due to mono. There is a huge asterisk next to that win from Nadal. More importantly Fed bageled Nadal twice, one of them on clay

Classic Noserertard I am impressed. Disregarding clay despite the fact that in the past 2 slams were played on it. Lol. What's next? AO is an inferior surface because Noserer can't serve his way through his opponents and gets exposed as a shanking mug?

Default Re: Who is better at his Peak?

Almost all the top players are quite unplayable when their games are firing on all cylinders. What makes some of them better than the others/win Slams is not a higher peak level, but a higher average level/the ability to play their best tennis match after match and tournament after tournament.

On clay, I'd say Nadal's peak level is a step above the field for sure.

On other surfaces, it's a very tough call. Any of Federer, Djokovic, Murray, Nadal, Del Potro, Tsonga, Berdych and even a few other players ranked lower are pretty much unplayable when their game is firing on all cylinders. If forced to choose, I'd go with Federer and Tsonga because they have more variety to their attacking game than the others mentioned.

Of course you are. Fedfans are superior to clueless Dulltards in every way imaginable.

Forgive me, but two things wrong with this:

1) Didn't Federer beat Nadal in 2006?
2) Nadal wasn't at his best in 2011.
