No one, but Nadal looks a lot like Blake. Hard working, not as talented as Federer/Bolt, most of the time are 2nd. The difference is that Nadal beats Federer almost everytime in slams and Bolt beats Blake when it matter.

James Blake would be the obvious answer for a "who is Blake" in tennis

I always cringe when I hear this kind of comparison, truly idiotic.

OTOH, Usain Bolt is the Roger Federer of sprinting.

Yeah anti-doping is taking over in this era. I'm waiting for the new superdrugs to come out to start taking sprinting seriously.
