Peak Federer needed five sets to beat an 18 year old Nadal in Miami 2005. He lost in 2004 and also lost in Dubai 2006. Those are facts. And you can't possibly claim Nadal was as good on HC seven, eight years ago as he is today. So despite the fact that he may be a tard your reponse is just a hopeless attempt of an insult when everything else failed.

The fact is, if your life depended on it, you would all bet on Nadal. You can claim how you would choose Federer and I believe you, afterall you're his fans and it's only logical to support and believe in your favourite player, but if the shit went down, if this match really had an impact on your REAL life, you'd bet on Nadal.

What year? What court surface? Which round? Too many variables to even hazard a guess.

These two would certainly be too good not to win a match against each other anywhere , bar maybe Fed defeating Nadal on clay..

Over one match, Nadal..In NBA-style best of 7 matches Playoff series in 4 Slams i see it this way:

Peakdal vs. Peakerer

AO: Nadal 4-3 Federer
RG: Nadal 4-0 Federer
W: Federer 4-2 Nadal
USO: Federer 4-3 Nadal

Good post.

Federer's accomplishments in USO are unmatched.But,Rafa has always troubled him on outdoor courts even when Rafa was a young guy and Fed was in his peak.You can say it's a match up issue or whatever.

You cannot possibly compare performance in Masters events with Slams. Murray beat Federer quite comprehensively in numerous Masters events, but only took one set against him in their 3 Slam finals. Also, in '05, '06, '07 Federer could sustain his level in BO5 matches far better than he could from '08 onwards.

The correct answer is: we don't know and we will never know because it didn't happen.

Murray's example is irrelevant here.His career is quite odd.He didn't quite step it up in slams for a long time.It might have been the added pressure of a Brit winning a slam after 75+ years.

I do agree that it's slightly tough to predict what would have happened if peak Fed and peak Rafa faced in USO but at least we have evidence that a young Rafa troubled Peak Fed a lot on HC.

Of course we will never know but Murray and Nadal are incomparable in this situation. Nadal has many five sets victory over Federer, Murray beat him for the first time in what, 2012? Big difference.

Speaking facts makes you a tard? Its clear whose the tard here. Nadal leads Federer 2-0 on decoturf 2. Leads 2-0 at Australian Open the other HC grandslam. So I don't know how anyone could rationally ascertain that Federer would beat Nadal at USO when the two times they played on the surface Nadal prevailed.

I guess for posters to be not branded as Rafatards, they must agree with whatever wishful Fedtards say on this forum about the only remaining tournaments where they either haven't met or Federer leads.

Against Nadal? I don't think so. It's bad match-up for Federer and he trails the H2H against Rafa on HC outdoors clearly.

04-07 Fed on 04-07 USO court = Nadal wouldn't know what hit him. People here aren't aware that current USO court is 50% slower than it was 7-8 years ago. Nadal was hopeless on that court, defeats to Ferrer and Youzhny saying more than enough

Baby 06 Nadal flattened 'PeakOMGjesusFed' in Dubai, Peakdal would not lose in a best of 5 against Roger.

I doubt he would lose more than 1 service game.

Peak Fed would only beat Peak Nadal on grass/indoors

seriously, this is impossible to predict.

they've never (!) faced at the uso and they've only played 2 gs-hc matches (ao 2009, ao 2012).

also it depends on how fast the court would be and the bounce.

and which year is "peak dull"? 2008? 2010? 2013?
