Is there a "who has he beaten" question because of the talent out there or because of Federer's actual dominance? Its the same thing with Woods. Is he dominant because a watered down playing field or just because he is much better than the rest? Would Roddick be considered a better player had he won 4 majors? How many more majors would Roddick have it it weren't for Federer? You can ask the same question with Nadal.
