This off course is a hypothetical question. Roger Federer is arguably one the greatest tennis players on a grass surface because he has won seven Wimbledon tiles a joint all time record in the mens singles shared with Pete Sampras and William Renshaw . He certainly was the most dominant player at Wimbledon from 2003-2009, winning six championships in seven years., but what if he won the epic 5 set 2008 Wimbledon final to Rafael Nadal that he had lost in a tie break , he would have won seven straight titles by 2009, obviously as Federer won again in 2012 where he beat Andy Murray that would have been his 8th title you think that would have placed Federer the greatest grass court player ever , because he would have had a record 8 titles.

I think he would have if it was based on just Wimbledon titles but who knows what would really have happened. I still think he's an amazing player anyway. What's your opinion on this?
