It's not like he had much trouble maintaining his top 3 ranking versus Hewitt, Nalbandian, Roddick, Baghdatis & Safin 7 years ago.

Only Safin beat the number 1
(the most infamous inflated slam winner) - Safin faced 4 match points vs. Flukerer

Roddick is the only number 1 in history who couldn't beat top 10 opponents in Olympics & Davis Cup ties.

Roddick & Hewitt never beat the top 2 seeds in Slams.

Djoker, Nadal, Murray, Ferrer & Del Potro beat top 2 players in Slams.

Djoker beat all top 3 seeds in a Masters Series event.
Federer never did.
I'm sure he wishes he could beat himself to get such a record

Please quicken the courts for Donald, Federer & other servebots.

Ever since 2005, they were robbed by bad number 1 players.

If a lesser player is going to beat a top player, especially in a slam, an early round match is usually the time to do it.
Are you comparing top 20 19-years-old Federer with Rosol, a 27 years-old player outside top 50?

Fed is a talentless mug. He fluked 17 slams, 6 WTF, 302 weeks at #1. His luck is disgusting.
