Sorry guys, but you can't have it all
Convenient that the current members of top 4 are Fed's "main rivals" (despite all of them being 5-6 years younger) when it is to his detriment (H2H records) but when it comes to comparing # of slams (in which Nadal currently trails and most of his fans don't believe will reach), time spent as #1 etc. it's Fed weak era this, weak era that.

If Fed's main rivals are the same as Nadal's then the weak era excuse doesn't hold water when comparing the two, no?
