So are you saying if a player missed 6 months of competition its an achievement if you overtake him in the rankings?
Federer is a machine, and Nadal has never been physically comparable. You are just finding out now? Nadal has been injury-prone since day one. Although Nadal has won at least one slam per year for 8 years in a row (tied the record this year), and will make it 9 next year, so that's WINNING longevity. Federer's longevity is more related to reaching QFs.
