But federer-nadal takes it up one more level on pete-andre in terms of drama and history.
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.
Tier1(goat): Federer; Tier 1.5: Laver, Gonzales, Sampras, Nadal, Borg;
Tier 2: Lendl, Connors, Rosewall, Tilden; Tier 2.5: McEnroe, Agassi
