What do you mean by best performance? His best performance was in 2007 where everything worked except for the break point conversion. Have you watched the 2008 match? That was nothing short of terrible. Millions of shanks and the worst net approaches of all time. He basically invited Rafa to hit passing shots in almost every game.
This is the best chance for Federer to show up against Nadal. Clearly he has mental advantage against Nadal with last few wins. No body can deny 2019 Nadal is the weakest in clay since he debuted. With service and volley- Federer will try to root Nadal.
When Fogini can beat Nadal in the slowest court why can’t Federer.
Federer profile will become complete if he beats Nadal in clay in a grand slam. He will avenge the loss. History has given him an another chance to cement his greatness and then kill Djokovic in final like in 2011 and will show his fingers to all the haters.

Forgot how bad those set really were. The following 2 sets were decent, but not anything to write home about.
With all of the free time, I have created some tennis trivia questions. I think they are fairly difficult, although I may be proven wrong by some of the trivia experts on MTF. If you answer the question correctly, you can pick the next topic.
Note: Only main draw ATP matches (including Grand...
I'm vehemently opposed to holding the Open at all, have e-mailed the USTA letting them know this on more than one occasion and now this. A terrible idea.
Had a little, friendly, exchange with few fans here on this topic - and I think it deserves a separate thread.
I'm sick and tired of watching the recordings.
I want to see some LIVE tennis.
I live on the other coast, but I'll be there at the USO, in person, days before it starts. Just to...
Was it Borg? I am sure Borg is till now the only player who could play any style of tennis, and play along any side of the court(inside the baseline, outside, at the net etc).
It's not the big 3 members, as Nadal is too topspin and grinding from the baseline oriented, his net game while has...
