Federer's mono wasn't as intense as Soderling's, it doesn't mean he didn't have it at all.

Fed probably got over it in early to mid 2008 but he lacked the hours of practice on court which caused some serious damage to his fitness and then confidence. Whatever way you look at it and for whatever reason, his level dropped a lot in 2008 compared to 2007, apart from a couple of tournaments, the US and maybe Basel.
Just shows you how pointless H2H's are. Nadal beat Fed but in the end it meant jack, they both walked away with nothing. It's about winning titles.
