If Fed benefitted from a weak era, then so did Rafa, winning his slams before Joker peaked. (Now Nole has a weak era since Fed and Rafa are finished). Soon the weak era of Murray's domination will commence *rolls eyes*
Rafa won most of his slams against the GOAT!! He beat the GOAT on his favorite surface! In 2008, Fed was supremely dominant at Wimby until the Nadal match--he hadn't dropped a set going into that showdown!
Nadal did to the GOAT what the GOAT could never do to him--knock him off on his favorite surface. Sorry, but Fed's FO title was a bit of a joke--he didn't beat a single top player on clay and almost lost to Haas and Del Potro along the way.
