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: The Federer Decline Thread

I have been following Fed since 2003. His decline was clearly noticeable since spring 2007, then 2008 was even weaker, Fed found some new solutions and stabilized on a high level though.

Re: The Federer Decline Thread

he was at a good level last night, but couldn't go the distance 5th set. murray's great physically, allowed him to dominate in the 5th. murray reminds me of nadal, in his defensive abilities against federer.

Re: The Federer Decline Thread

federer is the greatest tennis player ive ever seen

his form from 2005-2006 was the highest level in tennis history
if he had adapted to nadal he probably would have won RG- (he refused to play 1 dimensional to match nadal)

his 2004 level was above sampras and borg's peaks

his 2003,2007 level was higher than anything nadal or nole has ever done

his 2008 level was finally when he declined enough (because of illness) that nadal could finally moonball him to defeat

roger- you were the best

Re: The Federer Decline Thread

I hope he doesn't carry on until 2016.

As a fan I found it hard enough seeing him being outdone by Murray. What is his level going to be like in four years time. If he does win another slam maybe he should call time on it then. A career as incredible as his shouldn't fizzle out.

Don't be stupid. Nadal 2010 and Djokovic 2011 were a lot better than 2003 Federer.

Over the course of the year I'd agree with that but Federer's 2003 TMC display was absolutely frightening, one of his best ever tournaments.

Re: The Federer Decline Thread

Noserer, too old and feeble for best of 5 . He needs to hire Steffi Graf as his fitness coach, I mean Drugassi had a renaissance after hooking up with her. Either that or acquire magic egg.

Re: The Federer Decline Thread

I have my doubts whether Roger has declined at all. The competition has caught up. Murray was almost unplayable. Add to that a surface that suits him and he is unplayable.

Re: The Federer Decline Thread

One thing I don't get about FEderer is why did his decline happen so young? It happened around middle of 2007, imo, and then he was 25, nearly 26. That's very young to have declined to be honest. Look at Djokovic, he's gonna be 26 and has been playing for a pretty long time now and it doesn't seem he has declined, same for Murray. In fact it seems both have improved in recent years rather than decline. Nadal has also declined but it wasn't a surprise given his knees and his playing style. But even then NAdal's level, before his injury at least, was very high. I think Federer declined 2 years too early.

agreed but it's not better competition except for djokovic and murray have improved while other 100 players are worse. legends retired and now we have some of the worst youngsters in the history of tennis.

justin bieber is not the best in history.
funk was better than rap.
techno not better than classic rock.

numbers are not everything.

What legends? Davydenko, Ljubicic, Hewitt, Blake, Roddick and other juggernauts of Noserer's strong era?
