So there's about a 2% absolute percentage difference between Fed's numbers and Novak's (I'm assuming this is the point of the thread given the OP) and roughly a 17% relative difference. Not exactly huge either way

It is everything... especially when we already figured out that they all have 29 wins against top 5... :rolleyes:

All this stats are useless.Shows nothing about competition or the value of actual slam.

Federer was lower then 10th in rankings when Nadal faced him in AO 17.I am sure Nadal would definitely wanted to play anyone in top 5 that day instead of Federer.

Or consider to play all seven rounds with top 10 players except any of the big 3 or play first six rounds with non ranked players but final against one of the big 3.Which slam is more valuable for you?
