When Will Fed Retire

I'm curious when you guys think Fed will offically retire from singles ?

I was waiting for this the guy just wins the WTF and the question of when he will retire comes up

2013 or 2014, depending on his results next year.

3 years, he likes his job...unless he gets fed up and retires early.

Unofficially, he has already retired. ATP will keep it a secret for a couple of more years.

Re: When Will Fed Retire

He could retire from the top 10 at 35 imo, but i don't think he will play that long. If i would bet, i would bet on the end of the 2014 season, and he will retire as a top 10 player in the world.

I predict 2016-2018.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

Not from the 3rd place. Anyway, he isn't that old. Look at Schüettler, he is who should start to thinking about it.

Never ever give up

Re: When Will Fed Retire

Right now it's starting to feel like he enjoys playing a lot more again, compared to earlier this year. Three months ago I would've said he'd be done after next year with the olympics and all, but now I'm not so sure. There's a lot of incredible records he could make if he's hungry enough.

Re: When Will Fed Retire

A few years ago I thought he'd be done at the end of the 2012 season; he would just stick around long enough to have another shot at the Olympics. And while he HAS declined, for some reason I expect him to stay around longer than that now, maybe retiring after the 2013 or 2014 season.

Re: When Will Fed Retire

Really can't see him going to 2016, although i would love it

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.
