He ate a bagel in the first set. Please grow up, Rafa didn't become infinitely better in two years. It was a combination of his ascension and Fed's decline, and for the hardcourt slams, it also had something to do with the decline of the types of players who were pummeling him there. Now, the players are mostly either inferior versions of Rafa or lower level aggressive players who are going to have trouble hitting through anyone given the speed of the courts.

He won every non-clay slam from 2004-2007 except for one (AO 2005). His stats began to go down in 2007 but he still won three of four slams.
Consider the set of all sets that have never been considered.
