I mean Fed fans can at least say, he lost vs clay goat. No shame losing vs Rafa.

Isn't Fed's losing h2h vs Rafa a positive thing? I mean Fed won 17 majors + made all those extra GS finals.

Isn't 17+6 better than 17+0 and preserving the h2h? I never get this penalizing Fed for his consistency and extra effort.
No, it means that Nadal and Davydenko have never played in a huge match (best of 5) and a stage where both were playing their best tennis. If you had to pick one match that would best indicate whose top level is better, it would be a GS final.

The extra GS finals add to Federer's consistency, but take away from his dominance that he has lost so many to Nadal.
