Anyone can lose to a mug every now and then. That has nothing to do with the weakness and lower skill level of the opponents Federer faced from 2003-2006. All the past greats lost a few times to mugs, but those are rarities, not the norm.
I didn't say in any era, I specifically stated 2003-2006, when Federer piled up most of his slams.
Expected from Federer trolls. Tennis knowledge isn't their strong point.
Yup, anybody can make blanket statements. The difference is in the case of Federer winnning slams, it's obvious he beat much weaker opponents than Nadal/Djokovic.
They also beat Federer occasionally, it doesn't mean they would beat him most of the time or when he's playing his best in the slams.
The same applies to Novak & Nadal, who would beat the field of 2003-2006 most of the time especially in slams.
All I see are emoticons instead of people making valid arguments for Gonzalez/Roddick/Wawrinka/Soderling/Kolschreiber and others of Federer's weak era being better than Prime Nadal/Djokovic/Murray. That's all the proof I needed.
There was never a discussion, just you making immaterial comments about something that can't be denied: Prime Nadal/Djokovic/Murray are far better than the mugs Federer destroyed from 2003-2006.
Anyone can lose to mugs .true BUT not for federer in his Prime.
Now and then ?
As I said we could never know all we can go on facts that already Happen.
Murray lost to Verdasco/ferrer/ Gonazalez/Roddick/wawrinka/nadull.
So from Wimby 2008-12 that is 16 slams. He lost to Feds old rival 5 times,Feds Prime rival nadull like 5/6 times . So that's like 11 slams not counting federer himself.
So u are trying to tell me Murray playing Prime Nalbandian/ferrero/kuerten/ coria/Hewitt/Safin/Agassi etc.
It's fed n rivals who is stopping Murray not the current generation . I don't buy what u are selling.
Novak now and then ?
He lost to Safin/haas/Roddick/Kohlscriber/Melzer/ Nadull.
So out of 16 slams he lost to Feds old rivals 5 times and Feds prime rival nadull 2 times that makes 7 times . I didn't even include Birdshit who won a masters Paris in 2006 and beat fed in 2004. Include that and it would be 8 out of 16 excluding fed. He won like 4 slams in that time frame.
In short the current ERA who didnt play from2003-2006 hasn't restricted Novaks GS haul. It's the old guys in majority not " now and then"
The current era is weak . If old men can become # 1.
I can say his best year in terms of results is weak .
RG . He face Soderling . No GS and a member of Feds "weak era"
Wimby Berdych just one final.Just like bagydatis
Novak just 1 GS when he played USO 10.
That's just how it goes u play who is in front of u.
You guess what they could do. I go by facts
