Olderer.

Reason? His game is way more error prone, he can easily hit himself out of a match with BH UE's. In fact this should have happened against Falla in 2010, if that clown didn't choke. If he has a bad serving day, I can easily see him bombing out to someone who doesn't bend down for him.

Nadal, however, is virtually immune to journeymen, especially in slams as his game is more consistent and steady. He won't lose the match with cheap errors and in best of 5 format, it's impossible for lower rank player to beat him.

Can't remember Nole 2.0 being taken to 5 sets.

Obviously R1 losses early in their careers before they became multiple grand slam champions don't count.

Who? When? And where?
When?

Guga comes out of retirement, gets a WC for direct entry into RG, facing Nadal in the first round.

Guga wins. 6-0 3-6 2-6 7-5 6-2. Nadal gets broken at 5*-3, serving for the Match. wins just 2 of the remaining 12 games.

Rafa, "he no two hand backhand, he one hander like Federer. So I hit every ball to his back hand. Why not work?

Got to be Federer. The other guys won't have his longevity, but the age gap is big enough that he should hit the skids first.

And btw, be sure that when this day comes that one of them loses in R1, it's NOT happening in RG.
Nadal only one of them to never lose in 1st round of Grand Slam in career so.....

I knew it would be Nadal, but I didn't know it would be to an injured Steve Darcis Shows ANYONE can beat him when not making mistakes.
