We should be appreciative of Federer though, because we will never see anything like him again. The fact he can still compete for slams ever after the erosion of his physical skills is really a greater testament to the natural talent he has than the period of time when he was dominating the tour.
Andy had dropped out of the Top 10 a few times before, but had always managed to get back up into the Top 10. The last time he dropped out however he hasn't been able to get back in so at that point I realized Andy's tennis future was behind him. I guess he is too busy with Brooklyn.
I have a, shall we say, morbid personality.
