Re: Federer 2004 vs. Djokovic 2011

hewitt is a good example how slam titles dont necessarily have to mean much. put him in his prime today, and he is hardly wining any.

They're better than the players ranked 4 and below now.

And Hewitt's counterpunching brand of tennis fits 2011 even better than it did back then.

Well, if you think that players like Roddick and Hewitt are as good as players like Nadal, Djokovic (or Federer who is now #3) then ths is your problem.
I'm just stating my opinion and I even stated that it can't be hold against Federer that he had to compete with those players above when he won everything

Before this year's Wimbledon, those two players WERE better than Djokovic.

You like the rest of the Rafole fans seem to think Roddick & Hewitt were at the same level back then as they are now. Fact is, those guys are former world #1. Hewitt was an excellent counter-puncher. And while I have always despised Roddick, he wasn't a mug pusher back then but pretty darn good.
