Of course, Djoko ran much more during the clay season but that's because he made 3 finals on red clay and Fed didn't do that well.
Even if that's true, it's only one match.
ESPN compare both players for the entire 2012 year(except the WTF final) and Nole had more milage than Federer.
Tier1(goat): Federer; Tier 1.5: Laver, Gonzales, Sampras, Nadal, Borg;
Tier 2: Lendl, Connors, Rosewall, Tilden; Tier 2.5: McEnroe, Agassi
