He’s hitting 110 MPH returns . I think Novak is at a different level than Murray, Federer and Rafa. The scary thing with Novak is he actually has room to improve. He has so many opportunities to come to net and transition, but he’s so good from the ground and at moving he’s content to nail it to one corner, have it floated back, let it bounce and then nail it to another corner. He could finish points faster, but I’m not going not going to tell him that"

AS of today yes, especially comparing to a 31 years of Fed. However at their prime, it's (1)Federer, (2)Nadal, (3)Nole, (4)Murray.
Federer > Davydenko > Nadal > Federer
