So if Roger is playing better than that must mean the rest of the feild is much better as they are having better results against Roger. Which means the feild was weak perviously
You can't have it both way.
Federer lost four times to players outside the top 20 in 2008. He had no such losses in 2009.
If you believe that majors are "all but handed " to particular players you don't know much about professional tennis.
You can't draw any conclusions about the strength of the field from one's player's performance in two years. But I guess that logic is not one of your strong points.
