14 somewhat better on aggregate, truth be told, but nothing changes significantly; neither 07 Djokovic nor 14 Federer win a slam/YEC if the years are switched, nor do they improve on their 2 masters titles. 08 v 15 and 09 v 16 feature a clear gap in Djokovic's favour so he wins the overall comparison.
2007 Djokovic better on HC and possibly even clay than 2014 Fed.

Neah, he was better in Miami, Canada and USO.
But Fed was better in AO (I guess, as both lost badly in their last match), Cinci, Shanghai and YEC, with IW being about the same or even a tad better from Fed.

Clay is irrelevant for both. Djoko played poorly in Rome and RG against Nadal in 2007, while losing early at the other clay events. Federer at least had a solid run in MC.

Raonic is Roddick lite
Nishikori is sorta Hewitt lite

not even remotely close overall.

Roddick and Hewitt way better.
Yes, essentially this.

Roddick’s peak serve is as good as Raonic’s and he is a much better tennis player.
Hewitt is the same retriever as Nishikori and has more offensive power and a better serve.

I think at IW Fed was easily better, not just a tad.

Hewitt's a better mover than Nishi IMO. Better returner, passer, server.
But Nishi has a slightly BH.

significant difference b/w these pairs is mental strength.

Wow, a thread that should've been ignored due to its silliness (Raonic/Nishikori vs Roddick/Hewitt. Really?) is now 4 pages and counting.

Posters need to be more selective in what threads they respond to. Don't feed.
