Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?
Nadal skipped a bunch of events. Federer played almost every scheduled tournament since he turned pro.
Federer had walkovers and cakewalk draws with careless, scared, weak opponents on hardcourt, indoor hardcourt, carpet & grass
Between 2003-7, the mentally-weakening players in his age group with any Slam & Masters titles were Roddick, Safin & Hewitt.
