Poor Fed, the moment Rafa started goating in 2010, he had to exit from his prime.Also the 2017 AO Final. Federer totally erased the mental block against Rafa after that match and the rest of 2017 was just history.
However, even though Federer lost to Nadal in 2008 Wimb/2009 AO he still won 2008 Us Open and 2 slam in 2009 after that which is not bad at all. After the 2010 AO Federer existed his prime and Nadal didn't really cost him any slam after that (they didn't even face each other at GS in 2010) so IMO it's not a big deal.
The same in 2008 really. The moment Rafa growed some fangs outside clay, Fed had to survive the Mono. Our boy Fed with some really bad luck, isn't it Federina!?
