Haha, you really want to go there and say that the Rafa of saturday night would have beaten the Roger of saturday and Sunday. Seriously, in tennis tactics is important, but Rafa just really wasn't good enough. Since you didn't come up with excuses when you started the thread, I don't expect you to come up with them now.
Just admit it, you called it yourself. Federer is the true no. 1 and GOAT.
PS His backhand was awesome, who cares if it's defenisive. If his footwork is on, that doesn't matter.
