Peak Fed wins on all surfaces.

Not peak Fed beat peak Joker (2011) on clay. Fed for sure wins on grass and fast hard court.

That was once with a disgusting servebot performance, out of 10 peak Djokovic would beat peak Federer 7-8 times on clay. Yes, he is that good there.

Also peak Fed cannot win on slow hard.
Indoors, now that would be the most balanced surface. Both are insanely good on that surface like indoor GOATs. Who won MS Cup/WTF at least 4 times when it was held indoors? Only Fed-Djoker, though Novak once by w/o.
You can agree that carpet is somehow similar like indoor hard, even then only Lendl has more YEC titles there (5).

No1e, of course. As confirmed by many tennis greats and his contemporaries, No1e's peak level is unmatched in the history of tennis.

MTF is a total clownfest these days.
Yeah, like peak Federer the GOAT would have won everywhere against everyone except Nadal on clay.
Just give me a break, man. :eek:

Peak to peak they played on clay in 2011 and grass in 2012. Fraud won both. So you got to give him that. On hardcourts Djoko owned him most of the times in his peak.

No, 2011 was a one time affair and 2012 WB Djokovic was not at his peak grass game.
You have to be a bit more analytic with your opinion.

Eh, hard to say, they match-up very well (neither is tailor made to beat the other, it's more of a contest of their A games). Purely speaking H2H, I'd give the edge to Fed on grass and fast HC, Novak on slow HC and indoors, clay probably being 50-50.

Fed's advantage is that he had a prolonged consistent peak period for 4 years (2004-2007) compared to Novak's which is much more spaced out (played some of his best tennis in parts of 2008, then obviously amazing 2011 and 2015) while Novak's advantage is that he matured earlier as a top player (in 2007 already when he was 19-20).

No in reality, this match would be decided at 12-10 in the 5th set...if both peaks played..
