Federer still dominated in 2004, 2005 (and to some degree in 2003), that's why you can't say that he "thrived against a weak field".

It got significantly worse in 2006 when Safin/Hewitt became non-factors and Roddick was crap for the first 7-8 months of the year (Federer dominated completely off clay and only lost to Nadal in the finals on clay), then by 2007 we already had a fully established Federer-Nadal-Djokovic trio, yet Federer still dominated (at least when it mattered).
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.
