The thing is djokovic never won Madrid on hard or Hamburg, fed and Nadal have never won shanghai but they won the Madrid hard when it was in the same slot. so then people were saying just count the slots since the events have changed to New ones. so Indian wells is the 1st master etc.
What he's saying is since Madrid clay switched places with Rome which is now the 5th master instead of the 4th, fedrrer has won the 4th when it was Hamburg and Madrid 2009 but last year it was the 5th masters. so technically he's won in 8 slots. Only a technicality but there's no real way to be fair. but djokovic has 8 of 9 current masters, though fed and Nadal could both amass wins at 11 different masters by winning the ones they don't have of current masters. djokovic can only get 9 at the moment.
How to clarky - work out most or only realistic outcome, claim the opposite
Federer, Djokovic, Delpo fan (also like Nalbandian, Dimitrov, Tsonga)
