Expected, doesn't really matter any more. I don't think Roger has what it takes in the tank to climb back up without the USO and AO, and frankly I don't think it's possible for him with his current form.
why should he retire? because he's not #1 anymore, in that case every single player should retire to leave just one player at #1. There's no reason for him to retire unless he wants to, unless he wants to spend the extra time with his family instead of travelling all over the place bringing his twins along. I'm sure it's not easy going around to different countries with 1 year old twins.
End of an era, but he should stay top 10 for a while. There is no need for the GOAT to retire when he can still make good money and do well in tournaments. He's not completely done, and he could still win another slam. Anyway, Federer doesn't care about rankings, just a shame he'll lose the no.2 spot to Fakervic
