You are basing this argument on the erroneous assumption that Fed would have lost to Nadal had he faced him in the final. Furthemore, Djok and Murray (and Ferrer to a lesser extent) have an equal aopportunity to shine as well.

Me too Sentimental reasons, probably, but he's one of, if not THE hardest working player on the tour right now, the biggest fighter and probably the most humble. Kind of hoping he can pull off a couple more upsets to take the title, or at least make the final.
this is actually murray's or djokovic's time to shine
no. a true GOAT never stops to shine. this is another test of rogers GOATness and i do believe he has all the answers. he has done it so many times and got a huge advantage over the others. he has also been the best player for the last 6 months. winning the AO will just be the climax of his recent form and make him the hottest player on tour for sure. it will also set him up for becoming the #1 again and end nadals dominance. he wants this badly. book it.
