I just keep hearing this over and over, and it's a real head scratcher. Do these people honestly believe that? The 31-year-old Federer is a better player now than he was in 2004-2006? That if prime Federer had begun his career in 2010 or so, he'd only win 2-3 majors or so at most? That's not a very strong indictment for Federer's greatness. I don't believe Federer is the greatest player of all-time, and I don't deny that Nadal/Djokovic/Murray is a tougher lineup at the top than Nadal and the others who went in and out of the Top 4 (Roddick, Nalbandian, Hewitt, Davydenko, etc.). But Federer's not playing members of the Big 4 every match, and the former human highlight reel is mostly an X's and O'x player now. How can they just ignore the obvious change in his play to the less spectacular?
