Federer is a better clay court player than Djokovic

Unpopular opinion but rings true for me especially after last night.... Djokovic might have more masters on clay but at RG they both have equal no of titles and final appearances. However, what tips it for Roger is the fact that his majority losses were to peak Rafa on clay from 2005-2011 and even then he managed to take sets off him. For Djokovic, he was destroyed by peak Rafa in straights and apart from that aberration in 2015 where Nadal was out of sorts he has been owned by Olddal as well. Plus Federer's victory over peak Djokovic in 2011 where Djokovic was arguably at his peakest of peaks.
Not to forget Djokovic got beaten by feckin Cappuccino in 2018.

Fed got more games off Rafa in 2019 than Novak did this year, and he was coming back from three years of not having played the tournament and being generally assumed to be a terrible clay player.
