I think they should play at

  1. Roland Garros

    5.1%
  2. Wimbledon

    56.4%
  3. Ashe Stadium

    38.5%

    Where would u like it see it happen?

    At the French where we haven't seen one since 08 where Soderling stopped Rafa in 09 and Stopped Federer in 2010 to keep it from happening?

    At Wimbledon where is has also been since 2008 and these guys always have an interesting story plus a lot to gain/lose?

    At the US Open where we have never seen them play and the crowd would be nuts?

    I would like wimbledon the most. wimbledon is rogers turf and he always has been competitive there with nadal. he always has a chance to beat nadal there.

    USO he also has a chance but wimbledon I think would be most exiting.
    I think fed will win one more slam, likely wimbledon.

    USO to make it a set :)

    If so, then Fedal will have met in AO-RG-WB-USO-WTF finals.

    Are there any other two players that have done that in the open era?

    I don't think any two players other than them have even met in RG and WB finals ever. And they did it three years in a row. Insane.

    Im torn between Wimbledon and the US Open. I'd kinda like to see them play at the Open, but the story behind it and atmosphere wouldn't match Wimbledon's I don't think.

    Wimby is the only one I want to see.

    Now that Fed has the French and Rafa has the USO I dont give a rats rear if they meet there.

    FO- it would be a slaughter at this point so no. I would much rather see Nadal-Djokovic here.

    Wimbledon- I would definitely like to see it here. I think it could be another great match if Federer is playing well enough to reach the final though Nadal would definitely be favored right now.

    U.S Open- This is where I would like to see it most since it has never happened, and at the stage of Federer's career he is at now this is the best chance for the most competitive match.

    I would actually like to see them play each other in the Wimbledon and US Open SFs.
    It never happened before so it would be quite interesting to see them fight for the one spot in the final.

    US Open Final....Rafa to beat Federer in all slams or Federer beat Nadal and proving that he can still do it. That he is better than Nadal at faster courts.

    Agree. Federer is, to my mind, the greatest player ever. But he's never been competitive with Rafa, one of the two greatest clay courters ever, probably the greatest, at FO, and Wimbledon I think his movement isn't quite there any more, so he needs a surface that adds a bit of speed to his shots. USO is the one I'd like to see, also the most likely IMO.
