You just answered your own question with the boldedYes of course he is. He got the most points throughout the whole season. They were all earnt, not donated.
The argument of Federer having a better h2h this year has been used through all of their respective careers by the VB. So I guess you finally accept that the Fedal h2h is bogus in terms of determining their greatness and other stats like weeks number one, and grand slams, titles etc matter more? Or does that only come into play this year because roles are switched ?
Suddenly they value consistency and being no.1 over H2H. Funny bunch.
