Still as the Aussies use to say if you played you're not hurt, if you're hurt don't play. The result was still there and Perry won. That's all you can go by.
Nadal's been a great player over the years but he's often hurt and Federer is rarely hurt. That helps Federer in his performances over the years because of Nadal's decline in level of play because of injuries.
