On winning DC and its overall importance in the discussion for all-time greats

The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.
It's a pretty hard draw but that's life. If the streak is broken he can only blame himself.
Back in the day it did not matter what his draw looked like... But that aura of invincibility is long gone. Even so, I think he will make at least the semis here.
What DOES piss me off is that they always draw my faves against each other in early rounds. Fed faces Davydenko so early, Toni you piece of shit
