Correct me if I'm wrong, but Johnson only dropped 2 sets all year? I get that he didn't have a rival who could push him. But, is that his fault? Wasn't he just that much better than everyone?

I agree that Devarman was remarkable and I don't want to say that Johnson was better or anything. No one will ever know.

This rivalry issue just bugs me a little. Like when Fed was destroying the field, folks would say he played in a weak era. How does anyone know that? Would it have been better to drop a few matches to someone just to build up a rivalry? Nonsense. Beat em all.
