Djokovic - nadal is an awesome rivalry purely because both guys can take matches from each other on all the surfaces.

It is a very even rivalry. I think djokovic - nadal can be even greater than agassi-sampras historically provided nadal can get back to the top.
I agree. Most fans believe Fed/Nadal rivalry is better than Sampras/Agassi rivalry. Nadal/Nole still has some years left to add to their rivalry, and can surpass Sampras/Agassi. Level wise, they all play higher than Sampras/Agassi.
