Not even talking about losing to clowns like Verdasco, Young, Bogomolov, Chardy or Querrey.
To say that he is way better winning matches he should win compared to the others is just a bit of an overstatement.
Not saying he isn't good. In 2012, Djokovic lost to 2 players outside the top 10. Federer lost to 3 players outside the top 10 in 2012. Obviously Federer has had a great career and has gotten to at least the Semi's of the Majors a record number of times. But If you are comparing current Roger to Current top 4 making that he is way better doesn't hold water.
