I guess we should look forward to see the Greatest Old Aged Pensioner of All Time whilst Murray, Djoker and Nadal are all playing in the legends tour then...

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

Re: The Federer Decline Thread (Is he done)

All good things must eventually end but Federer has maybe five more years as at least a top eight player. At year end 2013 he will be in the top three.

Re: The Federer Decline Thread (Is he done)

I think he has at least 2 more slams left for his career and is the clear #2 at the moment. I think he'll play the slams at an elite level for another 2 years.

Federer: Like A Fine Wine, Better With Age. Buy Or Sell?

Its safe to say that Roger has aged well, both polished in his behavior and looking fitter than ever. But its his tennis ability which is catching people by surprise as he ages. His tennis is simply reaching levels people thought were unfathomable. Some call it Federer 3.0. Others say everything old is new again. Regardless of what you call it, Roger is on another plateau. The next level is here.

His improvements over the last few years have been incredible. So much so that he's putting the much younger players in Novak and Murray in their places, again. His shots are so precise and devastating that the ball hits flush and on the line just about every time. He doesn't need muscle or power to hit the balls, he connects cleanly almost effortlessly. Do you think with age Roger has improved significantly?

Federer has evolved. Not only is his offensive play light years ahead of the rest of the field, but his defensive play over the last year has surely made great viewing for Nadal while he's been out injured. You best believe Roger is packing some serious heat too, kid. Federer flips a switch in his head, and goes in to bullet-time. With matrix type capabilities. There's not a player on tour who can compete with that, and Murray and his poor mother gazing on in desperation are going to find out the hard way when Federer pops open the cork and let's loose.

Good enough versus Davydenko and Roddick 7 yrs. ago. Mediocre in the last 5 years.
