federer was playing better than nadal @ USO 2011.
nadal had to struggle like hell to get a set vs djokovic. federer was up 2 sets to love vs him and had MPs. This was with djokovic playing better in the semi ( especially serving ) - both djokovic and nadal weren't serving well at all in the final
even the matchup angle doesn't account for that big a difference in the scorelines. federer was clearly playing better than nadal was ...
federer in USO 2011 was playing pretty well , would have a pretty good chance vs nadal ...
I would give Tsonga better chance, he def Nadal before Wimbledon on grass, Federer is 2-8 vs Nadal, 0-2 on HC Majors
You mention AO 2010 QF but Nadal def in-form Murray in USO 2011
AO 2012 final Murray-Nadal? Nadal would have been a big favorite
