Statistically Fed had the advantage. Tennis players are more likely to win slams at a younger age than in the last couple of years. Heck Sampras won the USO at 19, so that match went as expected, very much within the bell curve. But then Sampras won the USO in his last slam. Best book end player ever.
As for those exhibitions, Federer still got aced. Whether that match was for Fed's life, a million bucks or for W, he still got aced.
