Will have to disagree with this. Nadal had more raw power and could do more with the ball once he reached it, but Federer was equally fast. Nadal is much fitter and can sprint for longer though, so I think this clouds people's judgement. Watch Federer vs Ancic or Gonzalez on a fast surface. Or if you want a direct comparison look at any of Nadal vs Fed clay matches, Wimbledon finals (not 0 and even the 09 Australian Open.
