And people still think beating the big 3 in a slam means something when all you have is 2 fluked slams to show for it.
The problems those guys have chronically had is beating the 'Big 3' back to back. When Tsonga beat Nadal at AO, he lost to Nole in the final. Beat Federer at Wimbledon, lost to Nole in semis. Beat Nole at AO, lost to Federer in semis. Murray beat Nadal at USO 2008 and AO 2010, lost to Federer, and so so...

Only Del Potro and Berdych managed to get back to back wins. Unfortunately for Berdych, after beating Federer and Djokovic, he had Nadal waiting in the final.
