It's a real sad regret that Nalbandian and Haas didn't win one as well.
I am not Nalbandian had like 5 good matches in his career and Haas didnt deserve to win on given how mediocre to good he was

Federer wasn't that good?? If he wasn't that good it was because Safin didn't let him. He only lost one match outside clay that year, and it was a 5-setter against Nalbandian. He was in a 27 match wining streak until that match and he didn't lose to a top 10 since god knows when. So he was definitely playing good.
yeah Safin was just good...........had few great matches but his career is nothing that special
