    Uhm, no, he doesn't have to. He has won plenty. Really, how long does it have to be without winning titles on a certain surface (despite very good results, BTW) to say that someone has to "prove himself" over again?.

    Once again the stats show that the fed master is GOAT.

    Not that we needed the stats because tennis historians and experts like myself already know that federer is the greatest player ever.

    Relax folks, ...
    You are absolutely hilarious. It's irrelevant, the matches were lost.

    He doesn't have to prove himself OVER again. But he certainly has to IMPROVE though, don't you think? Because other players are improving including Djokovic and Murray who are both younger than Nadal. Hence Nadal has to improve if he's going to keep up with these younger players who are improving their game and getting physically stronger each season.

    Pretty much.

    But Federer beating Nadal is something very (very, very,...) important, he would have to "prove he can win a match" against Nadal, right? :)

    He was lucky Rafa wasn't still good enough off clay, that's all :)

    He's improved against Djokovic, which is what he was needing. He has continually beaten Murray on slams.
    We will have to see what his level is now though.

    Sorry, not sure what is your point...
