Re: Monday 16/7/12 Roger Federer breaks the all time weeks at no. 1 record. CONGRATS

Every player has their motivation for continuing to play, we are lucky that Roger still loves the game and had the added motivation of having always wanted to play on the big stage in front of his kids. I also think chasing records is another factor as on countless times he mentions this record, or that record. He knows all the statistics (better than most commentators)... he obviously gives it some decent thought. He also mentioned that he loves playing in front of large crowds and so while that is still happening he's still loving the sport. He said that he would not be able to handle playing on the smaller courts.

So it looks like there is plenty of things keeping Roger going, at least for the foreseeable future.

It's Roger Federer we're talking about. I didn't think he could achieve what he achieved when he lost the no 1 the first time but he did and it I have no words for it. Whatever we might think the guy has been a tremendous advertisement for the sport.

The best thing that could happen to the ATP players from 2003 until today is to have been in Fed´s era. He taught them to never sleep and to develop their tennis into genuine art and discipline. This would have been a real mug era IF Federer weren´t around. Djoko, Murray, Nadal, would have been mere bureaucrats complying with their routinary task at Slams, Masters,...WTF!!!

I think the interests of Djokovic and Nadal fans are starting to diverge - Djokovic followers fighting hard to maintain this as the era above eras, and Nadal followers...well, one has merely to look for oneself. Topspindoctor is not impressed.
