Peak HC Nadal struggled grandpa bad back 2013 Fed at Cincy and needed a lucky net chord to finish the match.Federer couldn't beat Nadal in 2009 despite playing extremely well
How is he going to easily beat 2008 nadal?
He struggled against baby Nadal when he was at his peak in Miami 2005 Dubai 2006
Difference between destroying a mediocre player like Roddick and a great one like NadalAs well as Federer did when he beat Delpo 6-3 6-0 6-0 or Roddick 6-4 6-0 6-2, but you chose Tsonga's example simply because he beat Nadal, a player Rodja has been struggling against during his entire career, so it could fit your theory of a peak level.
The problem is you used a record/performance against a single player (and not the whole field) which is insufficient to draw any relevant conclusion.
Nadal is as great in Australia as Hewitt is at the USO. You're either trolling or competing for the most ridiculous thread by the greatest buffoon in the northern hemisphere. If it's the later, I'll give you 10 stars.Difference between destroying a mediocre player like Roddick and a great one like Nadal
Federer also destroyed Hewitt in USO 2004 but needed 5 sets to beat grandpa Agassi that same tournament lol
2009 was a bit weird though.Come to think of it, so did Fred
LOL I had the link to this vid in my sig up until yesterday. The ultimate godmode. Caning the ball and attacking the net like a beast.
Federer can only dream of playing like this, especially against somebody like Nadal
Since a match or two is good enough to define peak, which is why Soderling has a higher clay peak than Murray.
Logically the same applies here
Tsonga has a higher peak than Federer at the AO
If anybody disagrees please explain why
Definetly weird! And a great year! Actually one of the weaker years on HC for Roger, both result wise and statistically. But at the same time winning channel slam! Delpo was tough that USO, blew pretty much everyone off court. At least Roger took him to five2009 was a bit weird though.
FO Sodering blows Nadal off court.
USO Delpo blows Fed off court.
Maybe its part of the reason 2009 is my favourite year.
All four slam finals had exquisite drama and tennis.
As you can see here
Peak ELO is not an indicative of peak level of play. ELO is calculated considering not only Grand Slams, but also Masters 1000 and Masters 500. So a player who only wins 1 GS on HC in a natural year could have a higher peak ELO than a player who actually has won the 2 GS on HC.2000s peak ELO ratings:
6) Del Potro
6) Del Potro
Soderling and Tsonga are nowhere to be seen.
Might it follow that if we are to infer data about players and patterns and matchups that 2012 can be said to be when all members of the Big 4 were closest within each other to their peaks?As you can see here
among the 2000s, 2012 is the year the best 10 players won most GS matches (161). Here are all the records:
top-2 : 2011 (49 wins)
top-3 : 2011 (70)
top-4 : 2011 (90)
top-5 : 2011 (104)
top-6 : 2011 (117)
top-7 : 2011 (127)
top-8 : 2012/2015 (137)
top-9 : 2012 (149)
top-10 : 2012 (161)
2011 and 2012.Might it follow that if we are to infer data about players and patterns and matchups that 2012 can be said to be when all members of the Big 4 were closest within each other to their peaks?
Ergo, 2012 is the year to look for detailed analysis within the rivalries?
So? Their only big fast court matches Fed destroyed Nadal in 06-07 YEC. Same result at Cincy, USO, Madrid Indoors.They did meet Dubai 2006 and Nadal won
Just go watch the match again lol... 2 insane retrievals in set one with Fed serving at 40-15 a break up which wouldn't be possible on a normal speed HC.What winners retrieved Verdasco hit 95 lol
How many winners should be there lol
It's a pretty average speed HCSo? Their only big fast court matches Fed destroyed Nadal in 06-07 YEC. Same result at Cincy, USO, Madrid Indoors.

We Fed fans will respond on threads about any players . Don’t worry about that and feel free to point out holes and achievements of other players as wellFederer has the most supporters here so I am more likely to get responses so it makes sense to talk about him the most
