Federer has 16 slams to Nadals 11 Do you think that all 16 of Feds slams are equal to Nadals? Is baghdatis as good of a player as Roger? No Is Philopusis as good of a player as Roger ? no Is Gonzalez as good of a player as roger? No Is Roddick as good of a player as Roger ? No Is 35 yo crippled Agassi as good of a player as roger? No On the other hand Nadal had to go through Roger almost every time . I could list other questionable slams but these I think are self evident ..... You can take 8 slams away from Roger because he basically won then when Nadal was not there or it was the start of his career. Now add Joker into the mix .....it just got a whole lot harder.
