4. Federer's got 17 Slams. 17. Seventeen. Seven... teen... That is all.
1- maybe to you the Olympics mean nothing . But they mean a lot to a lot of other people.
2- Federer says he is playing the best tennis of his life . Your argument is with him not me.
3- davydenko and Rosol are on paper head to head . Again you take the simplistic view . For example Davydenko has never played Nadal on anything but a hardcourt . Furthermore all the matches are a best of the three. And there's a difference of a ba match up like Rosol. Thy happens once in a blue moon .....but Nadal was beating everyone including Federer. It's not some weird thing that happens once in a blue moon.
4- 17 slams....yup that's all you got. An on paper and a robotic view your right. But a deeper more intellectual approach show that he got a majority of those slams by avoiding Nadal in some way.
