It's not the question of better or worse
IMHO, RF faced fewer
competitions during this pocket of somewhat void period(2004-2006).
- 2001-2004, tour condition drastically changed. Some of top players either failed
or struggled to make transition to new slower conditions.
- New homogeneous condition of baseline tennis all year long helped him collect large number
of slams in short time until 5 year younger generation matures: Nadal,
Djokovic and Murray.
RF is definitely one of the greats but grossly over-appreciated.
