Nadal >>>>>>>>>>>>> Federer

True.

Then again, the French had 128 in the field. The winner faced 7 of them, 5% by the numbers. Woods faced 100% of the field in each of his contests...If he were given 5 cupcakes and then only had to beat 2 top contenders each major, he might have 30 (maybe more) by now.......... Just food for thought.  

I don't think players ranked 15th overall, top ten ranked players, etc, in world tennis rankings are cupcakes. If you use that logic, then 95% of golfers in those majors are cupcakes. Difference is, most of the grand slams winners are the same few guys for years. Shows how dominant they are and they beat the heck out of each other as well. In golf majors gazillions of different guys win those. 

If you took Nadal and Joke out of tennis, Federer would probably have 50 grand slams. Same for the other two guys. If you took Mickelson, out of golf, Woods would have exactly 0 more titles. He never finished second to him when Mickelson won his majors.

How many golfers finish within 5 strokes of the winner? How many guys are out of it by the 1st round? 3/4th of the field

Tiger shot a 40 the 1st 9 holes of the 97 Masters (that's 1/8th of the tournament),  in tennis you have to win 7 rounds. Tiger loses in the 1st round if he's playing Tennis

Imagine that now he plays Joke. 

Tennis is a 3 man sport.  They have 1 in 3 chance of winning each event.

Feds 20, Captain Balding 19, Joker 16.

Federer appears to be done winning majors at the age of 38, Bald Eagle is only 33 and will easily win several more.

Joker is 32, so likely he won't catch Nadal,.

Fed is older than 28.  I wouldn't rule out him having a shot at another major.

Nadal has had a lot of knee problems.  I'm not sure how much longer he's gonna be able to play. 

Joker - Who knows.  He's up and down a bit.
