I'm not saying Nadal didn't have a weak draw (relatively speaking) and that his opposition may have made him look even better than he was to a degree but just focusing on Nadal's game in that tourney, his serving, transition from defense to offense, movement etc. it is my opinion that the level of play he reached in that tourney is comparable to peak level of play of much better overall USO players than him.
