    When was the Federer-Nadal rivalry at its best?

    2005 was pretty good to although I’m afraid that I would be including too long of a time span.

    When was the Federer-Nadal rivalry at its best?

    You can use any criteria you wish. When were both players consistently delivering the best matches? When were both players in very good form? When did they play most of their matches? Which time period was more enjoyable for you as a fan of one or both players? It could be 2007-2009, 2011-2012...

    Remember AO 2018 ? Stop writing off young players

    Looking back on it, hyping up Donald Young sounds ridiculous.

    Remember AO 2018 ? Stop writing off young players

    Dunno, man. It seems like Berrettini has taken a lot of the heat lately.

    2017 AO - 2018 IW

    His somewhat lackluster 2017 late-summer to fall season brings my opinion down a bit. Event by event: AO: Excellent clutchness, but he dropped a ton of sets along the way. Dubai: Lol IW: Peak level; no excuses. Miami: Solid overall level even with a tough draw; struggled a bit against Birdman...

    Federer is now 1-9 against #1 at Slams

    Fair enough, I guess. Federer's name can be squeezed into any word, really.

    Federer is now 1-9 against #1 at Slams

    Sounds an awful lot like that other word, doesn't it?

    2005-2007 Nadal vs 2017-2019 Nadal

    One metric that sounds promising enough is how ranking points are distributed across the top 10 (or top 20). It's basically the closest we can get to determining field strength. For instance, what did ___ player have to do to get to the number 6 ranking? The higher the bar for reaching the top...

    2005-2007 Nadal vs 2017-2019 Nadal

    From my point of view, it's Federer's words against the stats, but I can see where you're coming from.

    2005-2007 Nadal vs 2017-2019 Nadal

    Well, I disagree with Federer, and my disagreement stems from, in descending order of priority, the stats, further context behind his quotes, and my personal assessment of his performance over the years, (plus, there's no solid proof that he actually did improve other than his own claims, which...

    2005-2007 Nadal vs 2017-2019 Nadal

    There are arguments to be made for both sides. 2017-2019 had the bigger title haul but Nadal isn't facing anyone who is near the caliber of a peak Federer so the competition argument sways in the favor of 2005-2007.

    Daniil Medvedev dismisses Roger Federer

    Ned devotee, don't cheat the readers.

    Fred confirms he will play Roland Garros in 2020

    There’s no better way to practice for green clay than by practicing on red clay. :sneaky:

    Federer is now 1-9 against #1 at Slams

    It’s not all about the Fed fans. Honestly, some Djokovic and Nadal fans here are more obsessed with Federer than their own players.

    Federer is now 1-9 against #1 at Slams

    I meant collectively. And no, Novak also lost a match to him in qualifying so it’s 1-1. ;)

    Federer is now 1-9 against #1 at Slams

    The amount of toxicity in this thread is frankly concerning.

    Federer is now 1-9 against #1 at Slams

    You’re forgetting that Dominik Hrbaty has a winning H2H against all of the Big 4!

    Some Peak Fed Gems

    They are, but you can’t rate the whole era using stats that are outdated for the majority of that era.

    Some Peak Fed Gems

    Yeah, but 2005-2007, Fed met Nadal the most times in Slams.

    None whatsoever because OP had nothing to do with it. The thread got hijacked.

    4/8 M1000s won by Big 3 this year. A change of guard?

    It’s fine. Nicknames aren’t that serious anyway.

    His toughest opponent 10 years ago was Nadal.

    Tsitsipas comments on playing Medvedev - “It’s just boring”

    I’m not sure if I get your point. Federer is included in this list of three players as well. He too won AO 2018 well below his peak level.
