OMG, Rafa is the GOAT!
He's not claiming 22 > 17, he's claiming 22 > 9. Anything won by Fed before Nadal arrived on the scene, or when Nadal withdrew/lost early, is discounted entirely. Anything won by Nadal counts double. So basically, if Rafa had won the Wimbledon finals in 2006-7, we would now have two majors more between them. As Fed won, they only counted for one each, Nadal wins would count for two each as the era would be much stronger then, obviously.
I always approve when the detractors logic is sufficiently far out to allow even the least informed to write it off as total, biased BS. Next he'll be claiming the sun is cold.
