The problem with that is that according to Forbes, Federer is a much bigger money whore so he's bound to be more hungry for $$$ and glory by defeating a bunch of tired players.

YEC, hopp.

Fed is wealthier than Nadal because he's greater, not because he loves money more

That would be true if we'd be only discussing prize money.

Sponsoring money tells a different story. Sponsoring is where a good money whore gets his own way. Federer's sponsoring deals tell the story as it is.


Hopp!

I'm about to go to the city to find a birthday gift for a +50-year old who has it all, who just shrugs and moans when you ask him what he wants for his birthday but you can't go to his birthday party with empty hands.

I have no clue what to get him.

Well if he was injured last year then the 2 years thing is hardly some great shock - I've no doubt he is practising hard and making adjustments, I doubt he's forgotten how. If he can get through the first couple of rounds without incident then I don't think making him favourite is ludicrous at all.

Compare to Djokovic, who hasn't been having a great time since January and who is weakest on grass, Federer who, Halle notwithstanding is also not crash hot right now, and Murray who is in good form but still has question marks about if he can actually do it at Wimbledon....I think Nadal compares favourably indeed under the circumstances.

We can only marvel at the fantasy of what Federer would have accomplished in the 80's or 90's.

6 years is not sudden

It's like Fed downfall, gradually...
