Now I'm sure, Nadal fans have little to no respect for the weak era 17 time fluke slam clown Frauderer but one has to use the right equipment to weigh either player's accomplishments which was probably not done by ESPN.
Federer is the best tennis player all time hands down. But its one sport. Bo Jackson was a professional/olympic level athlete at 6 sports. Not only professional, but heisman winner, america amateur world record setter and two sport all star. If his career wasn't cut short by a freak injury, he probably would have been even greater.
