Last time I checked Federer won 2 Wimbledon finals against Nadal in 2006,2007, the only 2 times they faced each other on non-clay surfaces in majors when Federer was in his prime. If it wasn't for mono that screwed up Federer's 2008, he would probably be sitting on 7 Wimbledon victories in a row. Instead, Nadal took advantage at Wimbledon and then beat a mentally wounded Federer at the AO next year.
That's ancient history, though. Let's see how Rafa has been doing in the last couple of months..
