    Federer Nadal US Open (because never happened)

    and to a lesser degree..

    Djokovic Nadal Roland Garros (because Djoko needs RG to complete set)

    Well, Federer vs Nadal at the US Open hasn't happened yet, though I would like to see it. If Nadal won in the final (this year), Nadal would have beaten Federer in the finals of all 4 majors, and would be in a position to complete 2 career grand slams a few months afterwards (at the 2013 AO).

    Djokovic vs Nadal is also one of my favourite rivalries. With one more Nadal win, the Nadal-Djokovic H2H will be 20-14, identical to the Sampras-Agassi H2H, a parallel to their greatness.

    Nadal Djokovic on clay produces exciting rallies as they both defend very well and hit the ball heavy.

    Nadal Fed at Wimbly created the most drama.

    I agree, but no longer at Roland Garros. Nadal already boasts a 5-0 H2H record with Federer there (and 4-0 in finals), so there is no need to continue establishing his dominance there when it is so absolute. It would be much more useful for Nadal to meet him at Wimbledon (to even up the grass H2H to 2-2) and at the US Open (to have beaten Federer in the finals of all 4 grand slams).

    I also enjoy this match-up. But when you consider how lopsided it is becoming (with Djokovic winning their last 2 meetings there, and will likely win the next few should Federer reach that stage), it may begin to become a clone of the Nadal-Federer Roland Garros 'rivalry'. :oops:

    The big 3 is as grand in quality as the big 2 of Sampras-Agassi.. actually even grander because Agassi had an inconsistent career.

    Honestly I'm interested in Joker-Fed at Wimbledon. I just wish it was a final (and that Fed was a few years younger). But Joker-Fed at USO has produced the best matches so far.

    It would be a straight set blowout. Djoker might sneak a tiebreaker.

    Here we go with that NSK acronym again. Is that an insult? Does it stand for "Not So Kool"? If that's the case, cool starts with a 'c', not a 'k'.

    What is there not to believe? You just have to look at the recent meetings between Federer and Djokovic. Djokovic has won 8 sets in a row against Federer and has won the majority of their recent meetings. It's not a belief, it's a fact.

    I specifically said at the US Open, didn't I? If you believe their rivalry there has been 1 sided, even if only for the last two years, you are a clown.

    You mean to say that the two matches that Roger lost to Novak at US open, with match points in both are one sided? Do you even know what a one sided match is? :confused:
