Federer's clay legacy

His performance at the 5 biggest events on European red clay:

Monte Carlo - F(2006-2008)
Barcelona - none
Rome - F(2003,2006)
Hamburg - W(2002,2004,2005,2007) F(2008)
French Open - F(2006-2008), SF(2005)

I think never playing Barcelona is a big hit on his resume. He should play it this year. In fact, I think he should be at every clay tourney that Nadal is at - sort of like "I'll chase this guy all around Europe!"

Re: Federer's clay legacy

Also to note, the best Sampras did at these "Big 5" events was:

Monte Carlo - no finals
Barcelona - never played
Rome - W(1994)
Hamburg - 1 semi
French Open - 1 semi

Re: Federer's clay legacy

Also Nadal has been an absolute monster on clay:

Monte Carlo - W(2005-2008)
Barcelona - W(2005-2008)
Rome - W(2005-2007)
Hamburg - W(2008), F(2007)
French Open - W(2005-2008)

If you do a total title count from "Big clay 5" it's:

Nadal 16 Federer 4
