Military service in Switzerland is "compulsory" ... what is the consequence of not fulfilling this obligation according to Swiss laws? As you say... you have to pay 3% additional income tax (which is a lot of dosh from a star like Federer). I'm sure he paid a fair amount because of this in his...
Anybody who thinks this is a relevant stat where a higher percentage is better is nuts.
Which is better?
20/1 = 95% (20 slam titles, 1 runner-up)
20/8 = 71% (20 slam titles, 8 runner-up)
Clearly the second has the better statistics.
Why is veroniquem in this thread meant for sad and sulking Federer fans?
Does that prove troll-like behaviour? Perhaps the biggest indicator to date. There's only one reason why a Fed-hater/********* would want to enter this thread and that's to feed on our misery.
Federer contributed twice as many points to Nadal through his errors than Nadal's winners gained for him.

Good post and I generally agree with most of what you said. He falters largely due to the perceived weight of his own legacy, which is readily on his mind when playing Nadal.
For once I would love to see Roger play his tennis against Nadal instead of playing Nadal. He ALWAYS plays Nadal and...
Nadal is the fiercest competitor the sport has seen and Federer has no business ever being mentioned in the same category in this respect.
Again, a flawed champion. Federer has amazing ability which is why he's as great as he is... but he isn't a fierce competitor.
Indeed. Nadal gives everything and throws everything at Federer and Federer trembles. Nadal is the biggest competitor the sport of tennis has ever seen and Federer just can't handle it.
A flawed champion, he is. His inability to overcome Nadal in big matches is the major and perhaps only...
Let's face it, folks. Rafael Nadal is a remarkable competitor and always seems to show up against Roger Federer on the biggest of stages. But despite this fact, in basically all of their important non-clay matches, Federer has had opportunities galore to secure wins against his biggest rival...
