Very true. It is a pretty simple concept, no player plays their best for their whole career, even their very best. People seem to understand this easy reality when it comes to Federer or Djokovic, and to an even greater extreme certain "special" players like Nalbandian and Safin who seemingly are allowed to play their best only 2% of the time but retain some sort of unofficial uncrowned GOAT status, but not for Nadal.
