Stop being a fanboy, Nadal isn't the only part of the equation. The fact is Federer had some horrible losses in 2008 for other players not called Nadal, and to people he usually owns: Roddick, Fish, Blake, Karlovic, Stepanek. This year his losses, other than to Wawrinka, all have been to top 10 players, and all in very tight matches. Fed's record over top 10 players is fairly good this year as well.
