Anomaly wins matter nothing in the bigger picture. That is half the point.

It is a knock to flacks but means nothing in the truer picture of how great a player is/was.

The only head to head that matters in a player's career or tournament is: you vs everyone else. Federer smokes Nadal in that respect. It's not even a close contest.
