View Poll Results: Do you agree with Pete?
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%
Hello. I'm Rod Laver and my records are intact. Suck it losers. 33 14.86%

As we know Fed is 31 and Djokovic 25 so Novak is 6 years younger but winnig the same number of GS as his grandpa , It just shows how great Federer was in his prime.Let see what Djoko will do at 31 and half .

Same Roddick who bagled Nadal
Same koyla who destroyed Nadal for fun

Fed still badgering nole on any fast court
Still owning Murray at slam finals

Even agassi wasn't a better player in his 30s than his 20s

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

Shows great competition. Those other 11 are just weak era.

You mean 12. But yes, it's actually weak era right now. Arguably the weakest of all time. How else can you explain a has-been 31 year old with 2 kids still making slam semis and ranked no. 2 in the world?

warm regards...

6-2, 6-3, 6-2 and 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 and 6-3, 6-0 (and not even finals).

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

The only shot i hate to watch him hit is BH down the line, its always not straight enough and coming back to the center of court.

if he hit straight like laser he is beating djoker much easier.

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

You were doing well until "bullet time with matrix like capabilities". Lost me there. Surely using bullet time would be best for dodging the balls, not hitting them. If Murray listens to the only piece of advice Lendl gives him before going out there, Fed could do with bullet time at the net.

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

Agassi was robbed of a 3rd set break in their 2004 Indian Wells qf.
Davydenko and Roddick were 2 and 3. Ljubicic was 3 and Blake was 4, above Roddick because Roddick choked on 3 match points against Federer.
Roddick beat a physically fit Federer in 2008 & 2012.
Del Potro beat Nadal too, but in the end that didn't change their slam totals.

Nadal & Djokovic destroyed Roddick.... Federer cried and insulted Djokovic'a "trick shot" because he never saved a match point in a real Slam match.
