Has Roger Federer Peaked!?

With this humiliating loss at Montreal, it is time to claim that new era has arrived.

He has rarely lose matches especially with French players on hardcourt.

I personally believe he has peaked, do you think so too?

Re: Has Roger Federer Peaked!?

If Roger has peaked, then he has been peaking since 2007 because he has been terrible in non-Grand Slam matches.. Well not terrible, but obviously his standard when he plays in Grand Slams is nonevident in other tournaments.

I mean credit has to be given to Tsonga though. He stopped missing nearly all his shots when Roger was up in that third set.

Re: Has Roger Federer Peaked!?

I think he peaked a couple of years ago doesn't mean that he isn't still the best player on tour.

~~~for Masters events FED doesn`t really care much anymore, sure he likes to win and be #1 but he doesn`t really stress about losing every Masters title in the QF or SF anymore-- to him they`re merely practice for the slams these days..!!

shall i remind you of FED`s performance in the slams 2004---now:: win, win, SF, SF, win, win, win, final, win, win, win, final, win, win, SF, final, final, win, final, win, win..

Re: Has Roger Federer Peaked!?

Well we can't judge if he has peaked until a few years down the track, but i presume he knows he will not be able to match it with the new youngsters fighting for his spot over the next couple of years so he tries not to burnout before the slams. Which is a smart thing to do and could produce another 4-5 slams down the track.

Re: Has Roger Federer Peaked!?

Peaked??He peaked years ago but is still infintely better than 95% of players on tour.

He simply just isn't as fussed about masters titles as he was.No way Tsonga beats him in a GS - he's just far too inconsistent.

Even if Tsonga plays up to the level he showed in the AO 08??

Re: Has Roger Federer Peaked!?

In GS?? If Fed ever has mononucleosis again I guess he could.

Thats just it with Tsonga....AO08 was great for him but not a whole lot since.Will he ever reach that level again for consistent periods? Or was he just playing above himself?

Re: Has Roger Federer Peaked!?

For Federer it is all about the majors. You can take 2 sets from the great man but taking 3 in a best of five is mighty difficult.
