Also, is it just me, or does the OP have "underrated" and "overrated" backwards for what he is trying to insinuate?
You're missing the OP's point. The OP is saying that Nadal's FO wins have more heft because it was RF ont he other side of the net. Fed's WTF wins usually did not have Rafa on the other side so his WTF wins get underrated.
