Federer is a machine, and Nadal has never been physically comparable. You are just finding out now? Nadal has been injury-prone since day one. Although Nadal has won at least one slam per year for 8 years in a row (tied the record this year), and will make it 9 next year, so that's WINNING longevity. Federer's longevity is more related to reaching QFs.
The only thing that is sure to happen for Nadal in 2013 is that he will turn 27.
Just shows you how pointless H2H's are. Nadal beat Fed but in the end it meant jack, they both walked away with nothing. It's about winning titles.
