Noticed that Roger Federer lost to Novak Djokovic at Basel indoors. Overall, when one looks back at the 2009 season, though it has been a remarkable year for Federer, the quality of oponents he had to beat (for his titles) were not that great. It leads me to believe that if Nadal was not injured during the critical part of the season and if he had to face the likes of Djokovic, Murray or Del Potro in the latter half of tournaments, the results could have been much different. Not to take away anything from Federer’s 2009 victories, it seems to me that the days of dominating the other top players (ranked from 2-5) are done with. Based on his performance at Paris Masters and the rest of the season, he might even lose his No:1 ranking.
