At the beginning of Book III of the Iliad, there's a passage where the Trojans advance in a noisy and intimidating fashion, and they're compared in an epic simile to a flock of cranes making war on the Pygmies. Then follows the description of the Greeks: "They went in silence, breathing might."

Like Nadal and Federer! So even if it takes Federer some ten matches, like the ten-year Trojan War, to get Nadal's number, there will eventually be a complete rout. Not to worry, then, and meanwhile Rafa can set some new records.
