Funny thing is, if we presume that Novak really came into his own in 2011, even since then Fed faced him in slams more than Nadal, 5 times to Nadal's 4.

Oh definitely, it never ceases to amaze me on this forum how Fed is supposed to be like some fine wine that gets better with age while the other members of the top 4 have so many slumps, peaks, injuries and massive declines that it's hard to keep track.
