He also dominated counterpunchers like Hewitt, who is similar to MurrayPeople act like Federer never faced certain styles of players when he was dominating..."ohhhhh, Federer can't handle da great Berdych and Tsonga," like he didn't face and dominate Safin (aside from one nail-biting classic slam loss) and pre-pusher Roddick. They act like he never faced excellent baseliners such as Djokovic, when he dominated Davydenko.
The proof that Federer could handle these guys in his prime is in watching him handle certain styles when he was dominating. Federer used to have the answers. As time went on, the wrist flicks disappeared...the around-the-netposts shots disappeared...the liquid whip forehand disappeared...the confidence in the backhand down the line disappeared...the probe slice and routine passing shots off said probe slice disappeared. Federer doesn't play the same as he used to.
