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.
Re: US Open R3 : Federer routines Verdasco 6-3 6-4 6-4
This performance should make every Fed fan sleep very well tonight. Roger didn't try to trash his opponent, but in terms of winning sets he was unplayable. This is without a shadow of a doubt the best he has played since Cincy QF. Excellent length, good play from both wings, serve clicked. Federer was fantastic today.
World #1 into R16.
