Look how massively Federer declined in 2008 when he was 27.

Nadal's and Djokovic's decline at 27 will be way more drastic than Federer's to the point they won't be winning slams at 27 or older.

26 is probably the age when Nadal and Djokovic will be winning their last slam.

As for the thread(I voted yes) if Federer wins the AO he could very likely win another slam

Thing is I'm not so sure Federer will win the AO. Djokovic is too good there atm.

Then ppl on MTF will ask him to retire. Simple as that.

Federer could actually beat Djokovic at RG or Wimbledon, imo.

Would be a major upset.

I'd be less surprised if Djokovic lost to Tsonga.

Djokovic is not that great at slams on natural surfaces. Agassi-like.

I will be surprised if he wins multiple slams at RG or at Wimbledon.

He could end up with more HC slams than Agassi though.

Federer is a bad matchup for Djokovic, specially outside of HC.

Re: Multi slam year possible for federer?

Roger will win the calendar year grand slam.

Seriously though, who knows if he's gonna win multiple slams this year? At this point I'd be happy with just one.

Roger Federer

Re: Multi slam year possible for federer?

Now I know it's not going to happen but I would love to see the reactions on MTF if Fed won the CYGS in 2012. I think there won't be enough space for all the gems even if we use Mars.

Re: Multi slam year possible for federer?

I thought Nadal would burn out after few years. But after 6 years he is still at Top. So anybody can be fit if he wants to...It all depends on Federer's motivation level.

Give him a Jimmy C like fire and he can still roll a few years at the Top.
