Ergo, paper covers rock.
Berdych is bigger and rangier than Ferrer and gets to many shots Federer uses to put away or set up for the putaway vs Ferrer. Ergo, rock crushes scissors but scissors cut paper.
A very good analogy. Question is what was Federer in his prime? The Iron Fist?
What about when Nadal faces Djokovic?
