We have witnessed multiple clashes of big3 over the course of last 1,5 decades. The reason behind it is that the court & conditions in Californian desert are unique and favour the game of all 3 of them.
Let it be Federer 's ultra agressive game with finesse, touch, guile & serve+1 or Nadal's heavyweight game with intensity, agility & topspin or Djokovic's counter punching agression with depth, angles & precision.

So, in your opinion, which is the best performance by one of them against the other?

Now, I've obviously not included the matches like 2013 quarter final between fedal & 2016 semi final between nadovic, as one of them was clearly hampered in that match.

What's the best big3 performance against another big3? You can choose any 2.

Do vote in the poll.
Discuss politely and respectfully, ladies and gentlemen.

Federer probably had the highest individual level displayed in the 2017 Final. Too bad the neo backhand was just a short lived thing.

I watched most of them in person and am surprised that the 2014 final between Djokovic and Federer is not on the list as it would be my #2. My #1 is the 2015 Final - Djokovic was playing at BOAT level and Federer was as good as I’ve seen him. They were both standing at the baseline without giving an inch and bashing the ball on the rise while still playing amazing defense. At some point, Federer lost his self-belief that he could win and then was efficiently steamrolled by Djokovic late in the 3rd. Until then, it was the tennis version of a high-action video game.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a higher level of tennis and will be amazed if I see a match of that caliber in the future.

Not that I'm biased or anything, but Fedovic 2011 was absolutely glorious.
Actually that whole tournament.

Actually that whole Sunshine Double


Actually that whole year :D

Tbh I've never seen Djokovic hitting his forehand & backhand as well as he did in 2011. He could generate down the line, cross court, on the run rippers at will out of anywhere.
