Although not much can be differentiated between these two players based on their first round match, however there are a couple of areas where Federer might want to think upon: Unforced Errors –which were 19 more than Nadal. And on his second serve, he was able to win just 56% of points.

These are just initial days and as we will progress further in the tournament, we will get a more clear and conclusive picture as to who is playing better than the other! Whoever does will have an upper hand in the SF if they meet each other.
