Are we seeing the rise of one season wonders now?
Federer was the only player to totally dominate seasons in the way we have never seen before, having 3 3 slam seasons and neally having one 4 slam season.
Rest of players usually have on and off seasons.
Are we seeing now the rise of players having one great season and thats it? Theres only one way to go from the very top and thats down, even if you still have a great year. With the modern tour ever more demanding we are seeing a very physical style of play that only keeps you at the top for a very short period i.e Hewitt.
Djokovic is doing it now, Nadal did it last year to a lesser extent.
"I did not play my best tennis, no? And..that is what enable him to win..to win this match no? "
