I agree! I believe roger once made a comment about nadal that said, "If I'm not no.1, than he should be." I can't think of anyone who was more deserving to take the no.1 position from roger than rafa and I'm glad roger lost his no.1 position ot a great, humble champion.
I would like to add that as tennis players they have been able to push each other to become better competitors and that can only be a good thing for us RF/RN fans because Roger would have eventually got bored out there only because his genius would not have been tested enough...now that Rafa to a point has achieved in doing that I think it will only make Roger improve more, work harder to win and to play longer, to have another goal so to speak apart from winning the FO of course.
Hope my point makes sense?
