IMO there was no debate. Tiger is playing against 100's of golfers at the same time while Roger gets to play them one at a time. Plus Federer might be the most dominant tennis player ever but there were others like him before. Tiger is simply on an entirely different level.

I think you can say that Federer isn't the undisputed best player in the world anymore. Even when Tiger Woods hadn't won a major in over 2 years, I never got that feeling. Golf never had the kind of competition in Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, though.
Nadal is now at 5 grand slams at 22, a pretty crazy feat considering he's been playing with Federer throughout his short career. Roger may break Sampras' record soon, but maybe Nadal breaks his by the time it's all said and done?

The 4th set tiebreaker was the best part, try to watch the highlights of that.
Best match i've ever seen, bar none. The last two sets were aboslutely ridiculous. Competitive, dramatic, quality of play, everything was there. WOW!!!!!
Now let's see if Nadal can be successful on the hard courts this summer. I'd like to see him win at least one, maybe 2 Masters Series events and at least make the US Open semis. IF he can do that, he becomes the undisputed No. 1 in my mind...
On another note, could Nadal get to 16 slams (I think that's the record), assuming he has another 4-5 years of good health....
