as I fan of both players (yep, it is possible folks)

We can say that nadal leads the h2h 20-10,

on clay rafa destroys fed 13-2 (oof),

in majors nadal wastes the fedster 8-2..thats a feather for nadal.

but on grass..its 2-1 to Federer,

on indoor HC (all World tour finals) Federer owns nadal 4-0 (ooh), a feather for Federer.

and Federer served up some tasty bakery products to nadal (doughnuts/bagels) on HC, grass, and clay...6-0 set drubbings on all surfaces (eek)..

some actual and interesting facts which are fair to both players,

Over to you Tennis chums. :neutral:

RFederer has proved that when he wants to, he can bagel RNadal on any surface, including RNadal's beloved clay. Meanwhile, RNadal has only bageled RFederer once, and it was on clay. RFederer is the much superior player.

Federer and Nadal mainly meet on clay because that was the only place Nadal could consistantly make finals, but Nadal had a huge advantage over Fed on clay. All other surfaces have been closely contested between the two.......

How many times have the two met and how many times have been on clay? Just run the numbers instead of spouting off.

They've met 30 times and 15 times have been on clay. If Federer won all off-clay matches (HC and grass) plus the two clay matches he managed to win - he should be ahead in their H2H by 17/13.

Don't let the facts get in the way!

I'm very very certain that I said that off clay meetings were close between the two as in not one sided, at no point did I ever suggest that Federer dominated Nadal off clay......

Don't let the facts get in the way that Federer leads Nadal 8-7 off clay...

You already know the answer.

Slow hc that favors nadal. Ao, iw, miami

Vs indoor hard/fast outdoor that favors fed uso wtf, shangai, bercy, cincy, canada(although toronto has been slowed as well as the uso)

How many meetings have been on clay, ao, iw, miami vs uso, wtf, basel, shangai, dubai, canada, cincy, bercy.

Just like Sampras and Agassi overtook Edberg & etc. Nadal has risen while Fed has gotten older. It's the natural cycle of things. I'm just amazed how consistent and great Federer still is.

Unfortunately all the slam courts play similarly now. No room for specialists.
 
It also shows Federer is an all court player and can get deep into clay court tournaments to play the King of clay.

But Nadal sucks on the other surfaces and can't get deep into tournaments to play against the GOAT.

at the end, that stuff about match ups is just sooo annoying.

as I mentioned, Connors was a very bad match up for Borg for some years, so were Lendl to Mac or Rosewall to Rocket " Three slams" Laver...well, what separates Borg,Mac or Laver stature as men, players and finally champions from Roger is that they found the way to switch things round and become the matchup for their former owner.

That is why all of them are higher than federer on the all time greats list...not considering also that federer has taken advantgae of playing such a weak, crappy era before Nadal made real progress even out of his beloved clay.

Sorry fedfans, your boy is just not capable of more... and he has had maaany years to figure out.

good thing he has mostly winning h2h against everyone else and won a bunch of slams because of it.

now if only rafa could learn to be more consistent outside of clay, he has had many years to figue it out


if only sampras could have figured out how to win on clay at all

I don´t support nadal at all, just put words to reality.

and, of course, fed fed up on those great names like Roddick,Hewitt,Old Fart Agassi,Blake,Philipousis,Gonzalez,Tsonga,Bagdhatis,Nalbandian,Davidhenko all of which add for.. 3 slam titles (2 Hewitt and 1 Roddick not counting old fart Agassi who was clearly not a contender anymore...)

Yep imagine if ****** was actually good enough to get deep in grass/HC and meet Rog there.
Where was Federer at the time of the 2010 and 2011 US Open finals? Where was Federer at the time of the 2010 and 2011 Wimbledon finals? Oops.

Tennis is a young man's game. It makes more sense to expect Nadal to reach finals in his youth than Fed in his old age, especially given how precocious Nadal was.

It's a very interesting matchup for sure. I mean at this point you have to give Nadal the edge to win more of the upcoming matches due to age and being dominant once again after coming back from injury. By the way Federer has been playing as of lately, I don't see why Nadal can't add some more wins on this h2h. Federer is hitting his decline kind of like how Pete Sampras's game significantly got worse post 2000.

Sampras loss to an 18 year old roddick at the Miami tournament in 2001. Federer beat Sampras at Wimbledon (phenomenal match by both players but it did show Sampras's game has declined).

yes, tougher for fed now, especially as nadal leads the 'age' h2h..erm, 26yrs to 31yrs..(if being younger is the definition of winning the age h2h. lol)
