Most dominant athlete in the world?

And today (or yesterday) proves that Federer is more dominant than Tiger. Tiger is dominant but there are dozens and dozens of players that on any given day can beat Tiger. Tiger lost in the Match Play Championship to Nick O'Hern. Most casual golf fans never even heard if Nick O'Hern. Tiger is great but so is every single golfer on the PGA Tour. That's what makes what Tiger does so amazing. Federer is great but at this point he really doesn't have any competition. Federer isn't going to lose to someone that most casual tennis fans never heard of because Federer is by far MUCH better than everyone else. Tiger is better than everyone else but the gap is closer and there are so many other variables that come into play in golf.

I think the debate is over, Federer!

Exactly and this also proves the little discussion about Tiger has to beat 155 guys each tournament while Federer plays one at a time. If that is the case then shouldn't Woods never lose a match-play event.

Winner Federer

Wait, so Tiger loses a tournament and this becomes an easy decision?

:-?

What about 3 or 4 years from now (or maybe even 2) when Tiger blows Jacks record of 18 major tournament wins out of the water and Federer still sucks on clay?

I don't watch much tennis at all and have not seen much of Federer. So I don't really know how easily he beats his opponents but from what I've heard he is well ahead of the 2nd best tennis player. Tiger is well ahead of the 2nd best golfer most would say but Tiger has no weakness to his game. On any given day Tiger could lose sure, but at this time there's no reason not to believe he will be on or near the top of the leaderboard come Sunday for every tournament he's in. Don't forget Tiger also needs to go out and play 4 great rounds back to back to back, Federer needs only a couple of hours to finish his business, is it easier to go out and kick butt for an hour vs 1 person or for 4 straight days vs 155?
