That means nothing. Nadal beat Federer when he was sick and on clay. Then he chokes away a chance at a title. Plus, it's not even about just one player being able to beat him. It's can the tour consistently beat him to prevent him from dominating. The answer is no. Rafa isn't even physically ready to play right now. The fact is, on grass Roger will beat anyone. So he's got a slam already. At the Open he is just as dominant, and will probably win the Aus again. On clay, he is vastly improving so really, I see the same dominance from Federer.
As for the original post, I doubt this will be a swiss year. Martina just came back and she hasn't even played one of the top players yet. There are just too many good players these day to see any form of dominance. And Patty....top ten is the best she'll do. She's seen her glory days, and she'll only be able to maintain her status. SHe won't be able to get much better.

talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............
Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.
