All Federer can do now is come close to victory only to break everyone's hearts.
That's debatable - if all Federer had to face in his 30s were Ferrer, Tsonga, Isner, Gasquet and the likes, he probably would've passed 20 slams years ago.

Re: SI dares to claim: Serena can be compared with Federer in GOAT discussion

Interesting enough that now Serena has 276.1551 in my GOAT WTA list, whilst Federer has 273.8809 in the ATP equivalent (well, the points for Wimbledon haven't been counted yet for the ATP, but Fed won't pass Serena's score), using the same formulas.

But again, this is all a comparison between two sports, it cannot actually be done fairly.

Some random guy just watching tennis.

Yup, Wozniacki for example famously clocked more than a full year at #1, and during that time not only she didn't win any slams, but she didn't even reach any final - if I'm not mistaken a single slam SF was her best result during the stint. There are no equivalents of something like that on the ATP side, not even close.

Serena Williams is supercharged.

There is no comparison possible with the main tour, see Roddick, the men equivalent.
