He's only lost 2 full matches since losing to Fed at Shanghai last year. His body has the biggest H2H advantage over him considering all his retirements and walkovers.

Novak should watch reruns of those 2 matches closely this weekend.

He can lose this one and the percentage goes down the drain. That's with stats, they show everything yet reveal nothing.

104-11 (90.4%) since Miami 2017.

Best winning percentage of his career?
Well Lew, you had a lot of fun the last few months with stats against Federer. Let’s see how much fun you have with stats against Nadal in the coming months.

Djokovic v Nadal might well ending up being the best rivalry of the open era. This year and the next will tell us.

For once, an interesting stat from Lew.

Wouldn't have thought Nadal was that high in recent years. Mind you, he does play a more limited schedule these days.

This is the most gorgeous HC stadium/court combo I've seen! The color scheme :love::love::love:
Stadium looks gorgeous, but I don't like the blue-on-blue; I always like a contrast between the court and the surrounding areas - whether playing or watching...one reason I hate watching matches from the O2.

I really like teal shades so for me, everything just fits perfectly, even the skyline as Djokodalerer pointed out. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder as they say.

Next Gen Weak Era?

It is easy to have a perfect winning ratio against Weak Next Gen (Tiafoe/Tsitsipas/Thiem/Zverev), rather than the strong Big 5 (prime Federer, Djokovic, Wawrinka and Murray).

Cherry-picking.

Even still, he went 75-7 in all of 2013 for 91.4% so yeah no. And that includes his last loss of the year so 92.5 before the WTF last match. Oh and he went 41-1 at one point and while completing the USO triple crown won 21 consecutive hard-court matches before losing Beijing Final to Novak.

So absolutely not. 2013 Nadal was beastly as well as 2010.

The underlying subtext of the original poast is that Djoker destroyed Peak Fed in 2014-15 and he is destroying Peakdal in 2018-19 and hence the 2014-2019 era is stronk, isn't it?
Clearly this "best winning percentage of his career" means ****.
He has been very consistent and solid the past 2 years (which is a credit to his longevity and his will that he made it big after 2 disappointing years) but nothing like 2010-2013.
Can't compare his USO13 performance to anything he did on HCs the past 2 years.
Also OP very cleverly left out the '17AO to Miami stretch where he lost 4 matches.

So Nadal must be at his peak according to ND-16
I am pretty sure the OP is trying to put the thought out in the open.
It goes somewhat like this:
If Nadal was peak in 2017-18 at such an advanced age then why not Fed could have been at peak in 2014-15?
If both of them were at peak in those years than 2014-2019 is a strong era.
And Djoker stopped both Peakerer and Peakdal while they were virtually unstoppable against the rest of the STRONG field.
