You're right, Fed is such a great player that even with reduced footwork and defensive play he still is at the top of the game.
In comparison to ******, as soon as the effects of aging happens and his physicality drops he won't be a top contender, because his game is all physical. Not shotmaking talent like Federer. Just big muscles to generate moonballs.
Dull relies on chokes and distracting opponents with childish celebrations while Federer wins by superior shot making.
