I think people underestimate federer's mental toughness because he does not show as much emotion on court as the other players. Certainly his consistency in the majors is reflective of his consistent attitude and mental toughness. The guy does not get as discouraged after his losses. He is the best front runner of the top 4, while Nadal is certainly the best at coming from behind in a match. Nadal is very tenacious and never gives up, however he struggles with nerves more than federer and djokovic and does not start as well in matches. Federer is probably the best at maintaining a lead and closing out matches so in my mind he is the most mental tough, which is reflected by his results. my order is
1. Federer
2. Nadal
3. Djokovic
4. Murray
