Yup, Federer joins his turkeys Hewitt and Roddick as the third man to lose 8 matches in majors to the other guy.

8-2 :smash: They have played on hard, clay and grass. He will lose again to Nadal if they meet at the US open, the only slam they have not played against each other. Why anyone would want to watch Federer choke time and time again is beyond me. Fedal matches are so easy to predict the winner that it is not even funny. Everyone keeps saying this is it, this is the one where Federer finally wins. He is actually getting further behind.

federer is way past his best now

the only reason he has an inflated ranking is after murray- there is a HUGE decline in talent and skill

federer wouldnt be in the top 500 if this was the 90s (maybe a slight exageration)
