Federer/Djokovic won only 1 French Open each & Nadal won 13.
Federer/Djokovic won at least 6 Australian Opens each & Nadal won only 1.

Without knowing surface of the court, is anyone willing to bet money on their favorite against the other two? This is how I would wager my money - assuming peak forms of each player:

Clay: Nadal
Slow Hard: Djokovic
Fast Hard & Grass: Federer

No such thing as really fast grass since 2002 so we can only speculate on this. Djokovic dominates on the medium paced plexicushion, not slow.

Also, due to his unmatched serve/return combo Djokovic is probably on par with Federer on a medium/fast court.

I agree with your general assertion, a lot of these results come down to court type but also probably the balls too.

well, despite the overall slow down of surfaces after January 1 2000, Fed showed that he can win even on very slow conditions in 04-07. people doubted in December 31 2009 that next decade will expose the Fraud. guess what - Fed silenced them by winning 5 slams in the '10s. never doubt the tennis genius that is Fed.
