2009 is doubtful at best as well. Federer hasnt beaten Nadal in a best of 5 match since 2007 now, and even that one (on grass) he won barely.
I also fail to see the logic rebound ace greatly benefits Federer compared to plexicushion or plexicushion greatly favors Djokovic. Rebound ace was most certainly not a fast surface either, and it was higher bouncing than plexicushion.
Not sure I agree; while I think Djokovic would've won that on Rebound Ace.. both men peaking on fast hardcourts= edge Federer. He's just too good on faster surfaces for Djokovic, though it would've been a spectacular match, no doubt.
