Well, lets take a look at their W-L record.

Fed 08- 68-16 (80.95%)
Nadal 11- 70-15 (82.35%)

Close, Nadal takes it by a hair.

How about ranking points?

Fed 08- 8,805 ranking points
Nadal 11- 9,755 ranking points

Clearly, Nadal 11.

Similarly, if Nadal 12 should equal Fed 09, I'd take that. 2 slams to get up to 12, passing Lendl and Borg, up to #3 in the Open Era, #7 all time, just behind Sampras.

Nadal did better at the Masters, so I'd take him. After all, he was stopped the majority of the time by one guy, while Federer lost to a variety of players.

Default Re: Federer 2008 or Nadal 2011?

the seasons are somewhat similar as far as success is concerned but it is strange for you to assume it is the begin of Nadal's 'decline' when you haven't even witnessed one season following it. if Nadal also has a bad 2012 season then it will be safe to say he started to decline in 2011, but as far as now it is just guesswork.

I would say Nadal was better in 2011 than Federer in his perspective year. this is just because Nadal actually played at a fairly high level for most of the season (besides Australia and the Asian swing) but just faced the hot guy of the season, Djokovic. it is not as though anyone else could beat the guy Nadal kept losing to in 2011... Rafael's form has been blown out of proportion as far as the fans on this site being far too critical

I'd say Federer '08. Outside of clay, it always went 5 sets with his main rival (Rafa) even though the conditions were against him. He also finished the season on high.

Nadal has been beaten more easily by his 2011 rival (Nole). And really faded away by the end of the season. Gotten beaten by unknowns.

One would have to say Federer as he won more titles, reached the semi rather than quarters at the AO and actually had a chance in one of the slam finals he lost. And given that he was battling mono and back problems, that makes his already superior achievements even more impressive.

Lendl won a couple of slams without anyone knowing?

Nadal. He didnt have mono.
Federer did and stunk up the place in the first three months of 2008.
