I still expect Federer to at least win the Wimbledon (if not the US Open), but if this scenario would, God forbid, come to pass, I would still believe that Federer will eventually get two or three more Grand Slams. It might then take longer, but I still think it would be a good possibility. Plenty of players have won nothing for a year or two (in fact, Fed is the only one to have won in such crazy succession). So there, my thoughts!
Right on mate! It won't be the end of the world or the end of Federer's career. He is still relatively young and is still remarkably talented. I would be awfully sad if he were not to win Wimbledon, it's sort of a tradition seeing him win Wimby. However, I knew there was a great possibility of him losing to Novak, he did and I am just fine. Usually in the past I would be very bumbed after he lost to lets say Nadal.
However, it's normal for even the best of players to lose a bit of their edge and start losing to upcoming stars in the game. Noavak is no club player you know. I at least would like for Fed to win the Olympic gold medal. If not then Wimbledon, certainly a big masters series title or something, it just wouldn't feel right if he did not win anything significant in 2008.
