    No, he isn't. Novak is better. Nadal is just mentally stronger in big matches.
    How is Novak better?

    14>6

    23>19

    Novak is a 1 surface man.

    -Won a 45th clay-court title, just one away from the all-time record

    Novak isn't better if Novak is better then Nadal then Nadal is better then Federer.

    My prediction for Wimbledon is that Nadal gets to semis loses to Murray probably. But gains 720 points in the process.

    I mean in terms of variety, Novak is slightly better. Obviously achievements wise, Rafa is miles ahead.

    And if you call Novak a one surface man, then you can say the same about Rafa to a certain degree.

    Great achievement especially given his age he can definitely make a run at Federer's record now. I hope Djokovic can rebound from this though I'd love to see a good Djokovic- Nadal match because we sadly didn't get that today

    Surely Nadal has to be 4 because the other 3 has fared better than him in the last couple of years.

    I can't remember how it works but even being world no.1 I think Rafa won't be seeded 1 or 2.
    Formula: start with entry points, add on all grass court points from previous year and 75% of points in best grass tournament in 2012.
    Nadal and Djokovic are too far in front in terms of entry points for the formula to put them outside the Top 2

    Ah ok. I thought it doesn't take entry points into consideration.

    Yeah perhaps, they're very similar. From the baseline they're probably dead equal, at the net I put Rafa ahead of Novak. Let's just be glad that we're able to watch two of the finest athletes to ever grace the sport (let alone sport in general) at their peak.

    Djokovic will be back but can he beat Murray on Grass? With the home support Murray cannot lose to Djokovic in best of 5 we saw what he did to Nole last year. Federer can take Djokovic out at Wimby to. Nadal can takeout anybody 3-0 against Murray on grass and has a score to settle with Roger on Grass.

    Ah I see, it's such a weird formula.

    Would love Rafa to make it to R3 or better this year!

    Nadal is 9-3 against Nole in slams. So much for Nole overtaking Nadal in the real h2h.

    Murray is better now than he was back then and Nadal is worse now than he was back then.

    Federer's 2012 win is important because it keeps him in the top 4 as well

    Nadal is better than Federer. I much prefer Feds especially at his peak when he was simply magical but results dont lie Federer hardly comes close to beating Nadal. He only did when he was at his peak and Nadal was far off it, and even in those years Nadal won the majority. Nadal is better on grass than Federer is on clay.

    Personally I think that Federer at his peak was better on clay than Novak and on top of that Nadals game is set up perfectly for Federer but isn't perfect for Novak. Novak is a great player but imho he is a level below Fedal at their best. Nadal first Feds second Sampras third maybe Djokovic fourth

    It'll be a joke if Federer wasn't seeded in the top 4.
