You said quote

'......Graf by far had tougher competition'

so now you're changing your point and talking about achievement levels instead.

Sabatini and Novotna, 1 or 2 slam calibre type players, were scared to even walk on court with the great Graf most times. If anything Federer is scared of playing Murray and Djokovic, 1 or 2 slam calibre type players, and breathes a sigh of relief when they are away from him in the draw or eliminated.
See the bit I bolded. If Graf dominated more than Federer then Graf's opponents were less competitive against her.

You make a point, without thinking it through for accuracy, get called on it then back track and say something else.

Fed 2010: Federer aged 28 16 Slams(inc. career slam) vs Sampras aged 28 14 Slams(no FO)
