New York: The possibility of a first-ever US Open match between Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer has other players talking about which of the superstars is better with no clearcut answer produced.

When it comes to Grand Slam titles, Swiss star Federer has 17, with five in a row at the US Open from 2004-2008, while Nadal owns 12 Slam crowns, including eight at the French Open and a 2010 US Open win to finish a career Grand Slam.

When it comes to their head-to-head rivalry, Nadal has won 21 times to only 10 for 32-year-old Federer and the 27-year-old Spaniard owns a 7-6 edge on hardcourts thanks to a quarter-final victory last month at Cincinnati.
