Uhh..I don't think so Dirk. I hope your right though.
Sadly, todays athlete is growing complacent, and I fear this complacency will filter it's way into Roger's world. Under-achieving is becoming acceptable, just ask Marat. I remember hearing Hewitt say a year ago he was going to quit after a year and play aussie-rules.
The lesser talented will continue to benefit from the superior ones losing interset...Gaudio. One-hit wonders like this will appear more and more in the future.
It will not be the Grandslam or Sampras's record Roger has to contend with, it will be this creeping complacency. And that is why I fear he will not break the all-time slam record. I your right Dirk. I hope he plays into his early thirties, but I have my doubts. I smell a "slump" in 06.
