I'm really missing something here, if you could please explain.
Because according to the Dark Knight and ***(all on my ignore list):

* 11 slams > 16 slams
* 3 goats > 1 goat
* old Fed is playing his best tennis, but Nadal 2004-07 doesn't count b/c he's still a baby
* level competition only includes the top 3 players, not the entire field
* GS final match is the be-all and end-all, the previous 6 matches is pointless
