When will Federer's SF GS streak end?

Everyone takes his streak of making the semis in a grand slam for granted, but it obviously will have to end at some point. It almost did in the French Open (several times). So, will it be sooner, later, or never?

He peaked too early in Cincy. He won't be seeing the second week this USO.

I hope he never have to end it before he retire.

Its an incredible stat than gets overlooked purely based on how many more records he has broken that hold much more significance, anyway i cant see it being broken unless Murray stays number 2 and Rafa gets him in a semi at roland garros next year etc, however unlikely that Rafa will not get back to number 2 so the stat will get extended further in my opinion.

Murray-Nadal rankings are irrelevant for this. If it comes to either of them, he'll already be playing semis, meaning continuing the streak. Someone ranked below 4 needs to beat him

The streak will end in a time far, far from now, when wearing spandex becomes fashionable again.

The commentators always mention it whenever he's playing. I would hardly call that "overlooked".
