    Greatest version of Nadal?

    2008 was my absolute favorite, because he still had that killer speed, and started to hit deeper groundstrokes. 2010 is a close second, and imo that was his peak forehand season (similar to Fed 2004 or 2005).

    Better Federer form: AO 09 or 10?

    2010 had a better serve, 2009 was better off the ground. I would take 2010 still. 2009 he went 5 sets with Berdych, smashed Delpo, and beat Roddick comfortably. In 2010 he really didn´t have much of a test except the Davydenko match.

    For fans who aren't aware of the YEC(WTF) is the 5th biggest tournament on the ATP tour

    Yeah, good point. But your initial statement, ¨he was winning them since 2005¨ would have been kind of misleading to someone who doesn´t watch. And yeah, London and Shanghai are the only ones I would consider ¨fast¨.

    Higher USO peak?

    Yeah, agree 100%. But basically my point was just based on my personal eye test, Federer in that final would blow anybody in the last 20 years off the court. Just my opinion though. Your point about level still stands though. Djokovic 2016 and 2011 at the AO is the perfect example.

    Higher USO peak?

    Yes, he did. I´m talking about Federer in his final form.

    Thanks for the memories London!

    12 distinct years, but 11 years have passed. 2009-2010, 2010-2011 ... 2019-2020 So 11 years, but over 12 calendar years if that makes sense.

    Higher USO peak?

    2011 Federer took Djokovic to 2 match points. 2004 Federer was faster and hit much better forehands than 2011erer. A big argument among Fed fans is that 2011 Djokovic is super overrated because non-prime Fed took him to match points. This is a fallacy, because the 2011 US Open semifinal was a...

    Somewhat controversial opinion:2007 WB F Nadal was more ferocious and slightly better from the baseline than 2015 F Djokovic

    Great post. I think we definitely need more of this on TTW. Good job with the analysis, especially with the depth comparison. Nadal was hitting super deep from around 2007-2011 at Wimbledon, and for some reason, he stopped doing that all the way till 2018 and the match with Novak.

    At one point Fedal hit 13 straight winners in that match (2 only were aces). The match was incredibly high-quality for the first 3 sets.

    Federer-Highest Peak Nadal- Most 1 surface dominance Djokovic- GOAT (among those 3 imo)

    Novak fans, Novak is finally the GOAT

    I would say he needs to get within 1 slam of the other two. But he is very close.
