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.
