Nadal is the better player, and so is Novak. Also, other players are figuring out his style as well and believe they have every chance to beat him. Rafa and Novak can play a 30 stroke rally without even flinching – Federer will eventually hit a ball out or in the net. If he gets to the semis he will be destroyed by Djokovic – if by some miracle he gets by the Serb, Nadal will beat him easily. Whenever he is pressured from the baseline by players who are no longer afraid of him (like how Blake beat him at the Olympics) he makes mistakes. He didn’t win any slams this year because his game is longer threatening. Federer will never dominate again.
Federer seems to still be suffering after his bout with mono, and Nadal’s been playing spectacularly lately. I can easily see Nadal winning, but I really hope Federer does instead. He hasn’t been having a great year this year (compared to past years), and I think a huge win will do him good.
Nadal would simply overwhelm Federer at this point in time. It’s the clay season, and the Spaniard is on full throttle. Federer at the moment is currently in OK form by his standards, but definitely not playing the tennis of his life. I’m pretty sure if they met it would be either a close four setter, or a five setter with Nadal prevailing.
Nadal for now bcoz federer isnt in the form that go him to win all those grand slams but federer does have the advantage of the hardcourts
The Age of Nadal” is upon us, and i see him out playing Federer by playing his best tennis yet, right now Federer has show this year he is not himself, do it do with age ? no. i just think it was a bad year for thin, but i think this is starting to become Nadal time
Federer has a lack of mental toughness this year. He will be back soon.
federer seems to be down this year and i think its because of his age.
nadal is young and fast
i like federer more but this year i think its nadal’s year
