Re: 100 year old man keeps playing tennis

Is it fair to call this man the King or GOAT?

Jordan's avatar you're missing the piece of flair "Roger Federer is God" in the Feder-bear.

Re: 100 year old man keeps playing tennis

Does this mean Roger's playing days are nowhere near done?

Re: 100 year old man keeps playing tennis

He clearly needs to work a bit on his footwork, but apart from that he looks like a solid top10 doubles player.

But seriously, that's amazing Hopefully he can keep playing even longer
