Nobody is going to look back and say "Nadal didn't win a title for five months, thus isn't the true force behind clay". They're going to look back and say "wow, Nadal has 27 Masters and has won Roland Garros a record 10 times! This guy is the clay GOAT for sure". It doesn't matter that he goes long stretches without winning, as long as wins them.

That's true, Federer does always have a chance - outside slams. Depending on how Nadal is when he gets back, Federer may have a chance against Nadal in slams, too.
