Correct.

Surface bias and hence the sample size is too small to count the H2H as a true indicator of the better player.

8 > 2, let's throw that one out there. Federer has never in his life been able to beat Rafa in a big match, other than two times on his favourite surface during his peak against a boy that was playing his first couple grass tournaments as a claycourter.

May I remind you sir, that Nadal is four years younger than Federer, a pretty large gap in real tennis terms. So in reality there was always going to be a small window of opportunity where they would each other in their prime. Unfortunately due to how bad Nadal was on non clay surfaces early on in his career and even now you see this gap.

May I remind you, that Federer is responsible for almost as many non clay failure to meets? Check out the 2010-11 seasons for example

H2H proves that Nadal is way better player than Federer. He beats Fed not only on clay, but on hardcourts too, especially on USO and AO . Even on grass .

Federer is underdog in every match against Nadal.

Only where Fed had upper hand is indoors.

No one is discarding the win, everyone is just saying that the sample is too biased to be used as a true indicator of who is the better player.

Strong knowledge of basic statistics in this thread.

There is no fact other then Nadal isn't going to reach Fed's total career record at this point.
