Re: Should Federer retire?

I know the thread is pretty much in jest, but this makes me think of how strange it must have been to see Borg retire when he was roughly Roger's age (seemingly because McEnroe came along and figured out how to beat him).

Re: Should Federer retire?

Given his potential, if Fed retires now, he will be remember as a monumental failure. So he better keeps trying.

Re: Should Federer retire?

Lose the headband, grow the hair out, and become Switzerland's finest Rock N Roll legend. Maybe draw a fan from MTF and create the first ever ATP/MTF band - "Roger and the Fedtards".

Clearly, there is no other option suitable.

Re: Should Federer retire?

Retire? He sucks so much he should be forced to leave the tour because he is such a disgrace.

But until he comes, I better get my head up Nadal's, Ljubo's and Nalbo's asses while there's space in their bandwagons. Rogi's so over.


Roger Federer

Richard Gasquet, Marcos Baghdatis, Tomas Berdych, Evgeny Korolev, Stanislas Wawrinka, Fabrice Santoro, Paul-Henri Mathieu, etc
.

It would be weird if Federer actually retired soon.

I wish I could only lose to one player and defeat everybody else.

I wouldn't be surprised if Roger doesn't play Rome again.

Rome is on his schedule so I'm hoping he'll play.
