Lol. MTF muggery strikes again.

AO 2009 because he played two of the most epic matches I've seen in a while, back to back no less.

He played his best at the 2010 USO , but who knew that after that nothing would be the same again. He will never be able to reach that level again and I'm afraid his Grand Slam winning days are over

AO 09 and US Open 010 he was a joke.

That was the worst level to win a slam ive ever seen. Joker Bitch just didnt turn up for the final, and at the AO, Granando Tobasco and Roger Federer choked the title to him.

Hell, the luck didnt stop there. His HC nemesis of the time Andy Murray lost early in both tournaments, and the player who beat him on HC earlier that year (Gail Monfills) also got injured.

But it didnt stop there, no, he needed Gonzalez to spend 7 hours coming back against Richard GasGay so he was exhaused, he would have beaten him otherwise. An epic choke from Tommy Farce.

Heck, even Gills Simon could have beaten him but choked in sets 2 and 3.

Yawn.

Aussie Open 09 & French Open 08. At Australia he was incredible, as he never plays well there and survived tough players like Haas, Gonzo and Simon before reaching SF, while in other Slams he din't had to. RG 2008 was , he literally destroyed. everyone.

Agreed. Now that he has won every major tournament (except WTF, but then again, not a big deal), the motivation level just isn't as high as it was before for Rafa.

Hopefully the challenge of Djokovic version 2.0 will force him to find that motivation again.

For me, the best performance of Rafa is RG 2008. He was just outstanding during this tournament. Best clay court tennis ever. His BH was close to the level of his FH, he plays aggressive tennis. Just outstanding.

He also was awesome in Wimbledon, and considering the circumstancies of the final, I think Wimbly 2008 > RG 2008.
I would have this ranking :

1. Wimbledon 2008 (the most memorable)
2. RG 2008 (his best slam)
3. OA 2009 (SF and Final were legendary matchs)
4. RG 2006 (Rafa came back from a foot injury and thought to stop his career during the winter, he needed this slam so much)
5. RG 2005 (Rafa's first slam)
6. RG 2010 (Rafa needed it after a very hard period of doubt)
7. US Open 2010 (finally he won the four slams)
8. RG 2011 (equal Borg's record)
9. Wimbledon 2010 (routine on grass)
10. RG 2007 (just routine here but good tournament nevertheless, he played better than in 2005 and 2006)

I agree with many of you that Nadal's level at RG 2008 was frightening, but I think Nadal's most impressive slam has to be AO 2009. Federer was on top form going into the final (although admittedly not at his best in the final), but Nadal edged it in the end to pick up his first hardcourt slam.

RG '08. Djokovic had just won AO, was still riding that high. Rafa decimated him in the semis, his cc BH absolutely punishing Djokovic. Then he tore Fed a new one in the F. First and only since Borg to not drop a set at RG.

AO 2009. Incredibly tough draw in the third round.

RG 2008, AO 2009, and USO 2010. All of those, for different reasons, on which I feel uncapable to decide.
