is that a joke or what?
You forget that Federer won the first set 6-0 and was 5-1 in the 4th set before finishing it 6-3. The set Nadal won he played an amazing and almost unrepeatable set with 20 winners to just 3 unforced errors and still got the set in a tiebreak, you go figure.
Federer on his part did not exactly played outstanding tennis, he was a little above on the winners/errors category and played well enough to take his nemesis out.
And no Nadal does not (has not won yet) win anything important on grass to compare him to Hewit. Hewit has a fair share of titles on grass (like 4) and include a Wimbledon title to that. Nadal is not close to Hewit on grass... just yet..
