I think both at their best then Rafa wins on clay, Djok on all but the very slowest hardcourts and grass it's a toss of a coin. Nothing between them.
Rafa is a year older but in his teens, already a slam winner and had several masters titles. He started out earlier and will burn out earlier than Novak.
