    Since the start of 2010, Novak has lost 25 matches and his record is 85.21%, Nadal has lost 27 matches and his record is 85.00%, Federer has lost 27 matches and his record is 84.57%. Its amazing how little separates the top three players in the game. Its also amazing that Federer is 30 (and 5 years past his prime) and the other two are 25 and in their prime.

    But you have to compare those number to their peaks. Nadal's numbers are pretty much the same as his peak years, in fact 2011 was even better. Even though Fed's losses are close to Nadal's now, they are way off his peak. Now is that due to more competition from every player in the field now or just Fed's decline. Ask Occam.

    Federer past his prime is still close to the top 2. He struggles even more against Nadal, but against Djokovic he still ahs a good chance. He played quite a lot of smaller events though the past couple of years, which have helped him. If he would win a Slam again, the world would look much different. He just doesnt beat Djokovic and Nadal regularly enough. Against the field, he's probably still the best, or second to Novak.

    Federer is still a great player at 30. Another slam might await him on the horizon.

    Federer is the better player so it isn't a surprise that a past prime Fed winning % is close the those two players. A prime Fed winning % would be in the 90% range, but prime Nadal can only be good enough to be in the 80% range. However, Nole managed to reach the 90% mark in 2011, let see if he can do it again.

    Without Nadal, that winning percentage would be further up. He'd have won RG 2011 had Nadal not blocked him for the umpteenth time, people forget that.

    What is their winning percentage against everyone but each other? Federer is still the best in that regard maybe?
