You and logic... Federer had four opportunities to win OG and only three of them when he was among best players. Nadal this year will have his seventh to win WTF, I guess that maybe he`d participate in 3-4 WTF more.
It doesn`t need to be a genious to understand what is harder to win for objective reasons due to impossibility to take part in OG more times then in WTF.

Also it warms my heart to see Chair Umpire coming out of his cave... have been in hiding lately will Nadal being Rosol'd and all

I see you haven't been able to answer my question just like your trollish friend durrrrrrrrrr.

And I also love your (fail of a)logic: Since the WTF is played every year, Nadal's more of a failure when he can't win it. But since the Olympic's are held every 4 years, Fed's failure isn't that bad.

Your logic can easily be reversed and say that the Olympics are more special and important because it's only held every 4 years which makes Nadal's success there even more important and special.

You need to beat the best. Chances is that you won't have to face the Gonzalez of this world to claim the title

shut up you bunch of bitter Nadal fanboy

Masters Cup has a winner list reading like a Slam, no Mecir, Rosset or Massu's sneak on there

Fed won there once beating #1 Nadal, #3 Nole, #4 Muzza, #5 Soderling, #6 Ferrer in all five matches (he was the #2) , tell me anywhere else you can win a title having to beat all your other fellow top 6 in a row

Rafa had to play Djoko in 2008 a player who has become a solid topthreener and a grand slam winner in the following years.

Stop putting words in my mouth Matty, I've said it before, you're not smart enough.

That Federer lacks the olympic gold is of course a small blemish on his resumé but like I said, since the OG is only held every 4 years it is at least UNDERSTANDABLE that he failed to win it.

It is not as understandable that Nadal who has played the WTF 6 times has not been able to win it, especially since he according to his quality fanboys is a GOAT contender.

No, my logic is not "easily reversed". We are talking TENNIS here. In TENNIS, the YEC has much history and is worth more ranking points than the olympics. Tennis players dream about winning slams and qualifying for the YEC when they are kids. They do not aim towards the olympics, like participants of many other sports do. Me and every other person with a brain here is very much aware that you would also acknowledge this fact if only you weren't bent on defending Nadal blindly in every and all situations.
