No. I think Federer's decline is a fact and he's not winning any major in the future. 39 17.57%
I kinda agree... He's in a great moment, but the other 2 guys are too good. No more slams for Feddy 45 20.27%
I totally agree. Fed's still playing great tennis and he'll probably win another major 105 47.30%

Re: What is wrong with Roger Federer? Sudden drop in form.

Motivation.

His main goals of the season were:
Olympics
No. 1 (with weeks record)
Slams
Davis Cup

Olympics, Slams and Davis Cup have all passed and he has the No. 1 weeks record. Sure there's the year end number one but that's not as big a deal as the others.

He is 31 FFS.

You cannot expect him to be as consistently great as if he were 25.

that's actually quite spot on, even if very little else was.

no question as he advances in age that a strong serve will be required to get him through. however, his second serve has not been good since the US Open... but, however, he's only played one tournament since then, so we'll see just how "bad" he is.

Re: The Federer Decline Thread (Is he done)

Federer had so much fun climbing from #3 to #1 that he's decided to relax and goof around for a spell and let his puny rivals have a brief glimpse of glory before he charges back to the pinnacle.

This advice, I find, is normally given only by those who don't own the house they live in.

Re: The Federer Decline Thread (Is he done)

Nope, only the beginning. I reckon he'll peak around 34-35, winning 8 slams in a row.

Inconsistency of Roger Federer

Federer's name has been associated with remarkable consistency, so many years in top 3, quarter-final streak at grand slams, etc

However, this year seems to be very up and down for Roger, not so much in terms of results but quality of play.

Best matches of the year:
vs Murray, Dubai final
vs Nadal, IW semi (his best match of the year I think)
vs Djokovic, Wimbledon semi
vs Djokovic, Cincy final

Worst matches of the year:
vs Roddick (!), Miami R32
vs Djokovic, Roland Garros semi (forehands were flying 3 meters beyond the baseline in that match)
vs Haas, Halle final (his worst match of the year)
vs Murray, Olympics
vs Murray, Shanghai (serve fell apart)

These days, every time Federer steps on court you don't know what to expect.

Re: Inconsistency of Roger Federer

Yes, he is old. The fact he could produce as many consistent performance day-in, day-out at this age is remarkable.
