How quickly people have forgotten. Federer is the only player to win the AO without dropping a set since the establishment of the ATP.
And about the rubbish competition argument, one can argue Nole wouldn't have beaten Safin in 2005, and he would be sitting on 3 AO. If 2005 Federer had Murray instead of Safin, he would have 5 AO by now.
Roger is number one - 17 slams; 302 weeks #1, 6 WTF; 5 years end #1; 24 slam finals;4 slam finals back-to-back year; Player of the decade
