That I think highlights Federer's greatness.

Or put another way, Federer lost 24 matches from 2004-2007. In Nadal's best 4 years (with at least 50 match wins), 2007-2011, Nadal lost 50 matches, or twice as many losses.
Anyone can play this game. Nadal has won 8 tournaments in a 4 month period (April-August 2008 ), something that Federer has never done.
