Re: There is no finish line...

Since turning 30 he suddenly wins 9 tournaments within 12 months? Not many players have even won 9 tournaments after 30 in total.
Bageling a 25 year old 'all time great' on a fast surface?
His win percentage for 2012 so far (88.9%) is even higher than that of 2007, that is ridiculous. For comparison, it is also narrowly higher than Nadal's career best.
Also ties Vilas's 56 outdoor titles, but that seems almost trivial now. Most M1000 titles, a new record non-clay M1000 as well (beyond Agassi).
300 weeks #1 or even the YE #1 seems well possible now.

Sometimes I think we will never fully comprehend how good Federer really is.
