Of course you're right. I do think Nadal is stronger now (assuming health is good) on grass and hard court than he was when he was younger.

But I've thought that several times. Is it Federer's fault Nadal lost early in a tournament? Of course not. One of Federer's great strengths is that he almost never loses to a player he should beat. He is better in that respect imo than Nadal over the years.
