After that Fed would have got better but he would have lacked confidence against Rafa, that's why I think at best Fed would have managed a 5th set (Rafa has enough talent and stamina not to go away easily vs Fed) and in a 5th the stats say Fed would have lost more often than not.
Federer would lack confidence? What a joke. Remember Federer being once 2-7 in the h2h against Hewitt or 0-5 against Nalbandian? Or 1-6 against Henman? Or....?
Just shows you how pointless H2H's are. Nadal beat Fed but in the end it meant jack, they both walked away with nothing. It's about winning titles.
