Once again you bring up an argument of how a particular player matched up against Nadal not in his prime. It has nothing to do with him. I am bringing up Federer's lack of competition on GS level. Were the guys I mentioned good? Yes. Were they ever a threat? No (apart from that AO semi in 2005). Thus the overinflated records of 10 slam finals in a row and 23GS semis in a row.
I asked Fedtards a legit question and I will repeat it:
Did he have a strong rival off clay during his dominant years (Roddicks/Hewitts/ don't count they are more like his personal jesters)?
Fed had another 8 consecutive finals between 2008 and 2010, just for you to know.
Who was Rafa's rival on clay? An overrated, overhyped ballerina who was a fast court specialist? Thus the overinflated records of 7 RG titles and the streak of 81 wins on clay, not to mention his multiple masters titles on clay.
You see what I did here?
