I reckon Fed's prime was 2004 - 2009 but he was setback in 2008 due to mono, and from 2010 onward clearly demonstrated both a physical and mental decline compared to his best years, the signs of which I started seeing in a more permanent sense around US Open 2009 AO 2010 period -- Well he has an awful lot of matches under his legs so it's certainly understandable.

Also, to suggest that Nadal and Djokovic are better adapted to the current conditions is reasonable, certainly in the context of an aging Federer, but I think even if he was prime-time then he still might not be better equipped than Nadal and Djokovic to deal with the current conditions in tennis.

No the mono crap is back again

So when Djokovic turns 30 and he will get owned by Tomic, it just means that Djokovic does not decline, he will just have met a greater player.

That said, I think it was just a relative minor factor in his unevitable decline.

It's kind of hilarious to think that a player having reached 30+ of age, 1000+ matches played on ATP level, a ridiculous mileage of some complete DECADE within the top-3-4 of the ATP records, wouldn't have declined by now.

Some folks over here indeed seem to believe in 'eternal life'.
Wow to you, folks.

I didn't mean to say that the mono didn't exist but yeah, let's say it was a ver minor fatcor in his decline. And to imply that it all started with his mono in 2008 is a bit

I agree with you - Rog was already a mite in decline in 2008, his mono infection might have been an additional factor, but surely not the 'main cause of it all', as some seem to claim.

Nothing 'lasts forever', I just wonder why so many seem to believe that, I'd understand if all of said claimers are 15-year olds.

Olderer's mono was a myth. When people have mono, they pull out of events (see Soderling. Olderer made AO semi, RG final and W final with "mono". Obviously an excuse, because despite being a media darling and seemingly gracious champion, Olderer is a sore loser.

You are my fav MTF troll.
Your current siggie is an additional compliment, only further emphasizing my point(s). Thank you!

Re: The Fedal era seems to be completely over or will be by the end of this year

Fed is a tennis demi-god. He doesn't decline, he hibernates. When he's in hibernation mode, like the last 2-3 years, he's somewhat vulnerable. But after he shed his old skin and come out of hibernation, he'll dominate again. You'll see.

This is fact, because I said it. Just accept this as your reality.
