what makes you think that federer had his peak level b/w 2008 and 2012 ?

that's just from the list of matches krosero has. it isn't a comprehensive list by any means ...

just that he probably has more stats of matches in 2008-12

yeah, which is why I said federer's performance vs nadal @ the YEC in 2011 stands out, it was on a medium surface against an elite defender ....

so does gonzalez's vs haas in the AO 2007 SF ....
