Never had Djokovic had more experience and skill (which keeps evolving) than he did after USO 2018. Federer 2009 could not win but put up a very good fight vs Del Porto. Who would win if these 2 behemoths squared off?

It will be close like 2010,11.

Nose might take Djokovic much more seriously than Del Potro.

I think I have watched The Twinner semi final in full once and if I am not mixing it with ,2008 SF, it was good level of play.

It's a five setter. God knows who wins.

Tweener was 2008 IIRC? Can't remember though.
 
Personally leaning towards Fed in 4 in this. Although I do think Djokovic was scary against Millman, Sousa and Nishikori in the semis that year.

2009 Fed was beast. Lost to DelPo by trying to flex his balls, but I think he would have hit past 2018 Djoker. Fed in 4.

All I remember from the 2018 final was Novak keeping things in 3rd gear all match long while Delpo failed to really push him. I think Novak still had another notch or two he could rise to if pushed but we didn't see it so it's hard to judge.

What I recall is that he played well for 1 set and a half before his level dipped in the middle of the 2nd for no obvious reason.

Federer should win, but never underestimate his ability to choke.

Careful.

At the rate Fedal2020 and Co. are creating threads, they might wind up with a thread
"Federer is a choker. Nole is the Djoker. Who would win an Oscar if they both played peak Joker?"

I never even saw Djoko 2018 in the USopen. Was he playing well?
On the other hand Federer 2009 was playing so well that I'm still shocked he lost that match.

Even if Fed starts mugging, he should still be able to get plenty of rhythm and outhit Djoker, which Delpo didn't let him do for obvious reasons. On level alone it's not that close.
