    Well against Roger in the finals. If you count how many times he's attempted and been eliminated before reaching the finals, then that skews your stats. Nadal isn't a born grass player, he does well for a clay transitioning to grass, but I can see some lower ranked players who could take Nadal out at wimby. I can't say the same for Roger.

    I quoted that sentence because it was wrong, Federer has won 2 out of 3 on grass (06.07), not nadal, as the article falesly states.

    But he's 1-2 in finals on grass, not 2-1.

    Then, good catch :wink:

    Sorry, didn't mean to come off snarky. Just wanna be as accurate as possible. Hate it when people favor one player or thing and bend certain stats towards their favorite.
