This crap needs to stop. I don't remember the number of weeks at #1 or any streaks coming up in early 2009, when Federer was on the edge of tying Sampras' slam record. All these meaningless stats suddenly became important after Nadal came back from an 8 month layoff and against all odds went from 11 slams to 13 slams. Not only that, but Nadal dominated the HC season up to USO, which bodes well for his chances of overtaking Federer's slam record, since 2 slams are played on hardcourt. At the same time, Federer's 2013 season indicates he is probably done winning slams. Get it through your head that if Nadal even just ties the slam record, in the mind of most he will be better (I'm just talking about the public's perception) since in case of a tie the natural tie breaker would be H2H. If you want to claim Federer's superiority, then do it in terms of other factors like his style. SF streaks prove consistency. Nobody debates Federer has been more consistent than Nadal getting to semifinals, but that pales as an achievent next to slam count and record against the main rivals.
