But both are evidently legitimate. All slams are.
Are you kididng me ? Yeah, he was very lucky he avoided Berdych and got Nadal instead

And while Nadal wasn't 100%, make me a list of players in that draw who were arguably stronger opponents than this 'injured' Nadal. If not for Del Potro, odds are Nadal would have ended up winning the tournament anyway. Under no circumstances would anyone ever prefer Nadal over Berdych in a Slam semi.

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (5): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013, Geneva 2015, Sydney 2016 and Buenos Aires 2016 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 3 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost
