My honest opinion. I think he's done ok for himself. Nadal played some great tennis to distance himself from Federer from 08 to 09, I think before then it was quite close. Nadal is still winning the slam matches, but I think Federer has done well since that AO 09 loss. Lets compare that to that epic match in Madrid 09, between Djokovic and Nadal. Where Nadal handed Djokovic a bruising defeat. Djokovic 10 Nadal 2 Amazing how Djokovic not only turned it around, but has outright dominated Nadal, who at that point was 14-4 against him. Incredible feat by Djokovic against the seemingly mental giant Nadal.
