    Who's easier for Nadal to beat...Doko, Muzza or Fed? My vote is Doko, he's a 'school boy' mentally compared to Nadal? :shock:

    Results would suggest Fed!

    Djoko doesn't seem to have a problem bringing his A game to Rafa.

    fed? easier for nadal? well results-wise nadal has more probability of beating fed than being beaten, but none except his FO 2008 win was a cakewalk. he really had to work hard.

    On clay, Murray.
    On grass, Murray.
    On hardcourts, Federer or Djokovic (not easy though).

    He asked what's easier for Nadal, not tougher.

    This year I am predicting it would be:

    Clay- Djokovic
    Grass- Djokovic
    Hard courts- Djokovic

    That is if Djokovic ever gets far enough to play Nadal.

    On clay probably Murray is the easiest to beat for Nadal while on the other surfaces u have to go with Djokovic.With Federer except the French Open last year most matches were pretty tight including a couple of 5 setters

    Judging from IW I think Murray is the easiest to beat regardless of surface.

    Grass - Murray. Queens final was a testament of Nadal's skills. Wimbledon was a cakewalk past Murray.
    Clay - Murray.
    HC - I don't really know. All three of them can beat Rafa on hc...

    Djokovic seems to be close to his best in almost all of the occasions when he plays Rafa.

    How is Murray the easiest just because he couldn't handle the wind.

    He beat Nadal twice in a row, something Djokovic has never done.

    Hard - Federer

    Djokovic always plays tough matches against Nadal (even on clay) and is leading H2H on HC.

    It's true.
    Djoker is underrated when it comes to his matches against Nadal.

    However, his chance of winning is low, but his chance of giving Nadal a hard time is higher than Murray or Fed. Atleast, on clay (especially @ FO).

    hhahha I'd say Federer because Rafa knows the result before he steps on court.

    I'm surprised by how many agreed with you. Nadal killed Djokovic when they played in Davis Cup this year. They haven't played since the Olympics because Djokovic has been pretty bad in tour events since last summer. He hasn't met Nadal or Federer in a tournament since the USO. He keeps losing to Roddick, how in the world is he going to be tough for Nadal?
