No need for poll. Roger in 3 easy sets.

's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

It depends what you consider to be each player's peak - and that is a circular argument that will continue to lack any resolution.

For what it's worth though, as Federer is the more successful player over a number of years on HC, I would go for him at his best. Just. But it would be very close, due to his biggest weakness playing to Nadal's biggest strength.

I think Nadal might nick this match up, though Federer is probably the US Open's greatest ever.

Despite the match-up issue, Peakerer playing his best would have this on his racquet. But it would be very tight, probably with them sharing wins.

Federer in close 4 sets. He can't get used to dull's anti-tennis moonballing throughout his career, but it doesn't change the basic fact that he's much better on fast court than dull.

2008 Peak dull might stand a chance to take it to 5 sets, since 2008 dull can moonball for 5 hours. 2013 HC dull stands no chance against peak Federer because he can't beat Roger on one-two punch nor short rallies.

All those picking Federer are a joke. So if your life was on the line you would pick Federer? Knowing that Rafa is 7-2 on outdoor hardcourts and 8-2 in slams? Please. Most of you wouldn't even bet 1$ on Fed.

Federer would win more often than not, but it would definitely be close. Something like 11-9 Federer if they were to play 20 times.
