Nadal's injury --> Wins Olympic Gold and USO
Federer having played a 5 setter quarters with Tsonga --> beats Fed in 5 sets (Fed's 1st serve was gone by then) in AO semis 2013 - first major win against fed.
Then I guess we better not mention Fed's 2009 FO win, which enabled him to achieve the career Grand Slam!
