Federer competition on grass- Nadal, Roddick, Hewitt, the end.

All the guys today are hard court specialists, to a lesser degree clay courters. There are hardly any quality grass courters today at all, it is an empty field on that surface.
You just bringing up names to make Pete look good. Fact is...he never faced a single player you listed above in 2000, and facing no top 10 players. 1999 he faces Andre, who didn't show up by serving 44% 1st serve.

And besides, there's nothing you can say Roger wouldn't of take down any of those players, or they would beat today's players. All we have known facts are their records and titles.
