'Fed owned his own generation.' Completely disagree that Nadal & Federer aren't part of the same generation. Seles & Graf? McEnroe & Connors? Four years between the former, and 6+ yrs between the two Americans.
If that is true, then Federer picked up more slams than Nadal did, even if you count WAY after Fed's prime, since Nadal began winning slams.
