yeah, that's just you being clueless, that's what they said when hewitt, nalbandian, agassi , henman owned him before 2004 ..... since then he absolutely crushed them ...

face it, peak federer would be heads and shoulders above all of them except nadal on clay ....

and if they were of the same age, fed-nadal would've played more matches outside of clay and federer would've more of those, gaining more confidence rather than losing confidence because he happened to go consistently deep in CC tourneys whereas rafa was getting blasted off court by the likes of blake, youzhny etc in HC tournaments ...
