That doesn't matter. They weren't champions, and they never reached a major final before or after the Australian Open final. They weren't players of consistent quality like Djokovic, Murray, or Nadal and more importantly, they weren't as fierce of competitors. Please. I love Roger, but it is what it is. A physically fit and fresh, in-onimous-form Federer couldn't even beat a less than 100% Nadal on this court in 2009, when Federer was playing better tennis than he is now. Marcos Baghdatis, no matter how well he's playing, is always a better draw than Murray, Djokovic, or Nadal.
