Top four are pretty close right now, can't see anything wrong with Fed's comment.

"It's getting colder, I'm getting colder, older, it's getting colder...

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"

Re: Roger : We are best ever, The four of us? Thatís a really difficult call.

Perhaps the point is that on average, it shouldn't be possible for a tennis player to be "at his peak" all the time. It shouldn't be possible to be 290+ total weeks at number 1. Just ask Nadal and Joker about being number for more than 200 weeks - not even close. It shouldn't be possible for a player to be number 1 for 237 consecutive weeks in this modern era, or to be in 10 straight slam finals, 23 straight slam semi-finals, 34 straight slam quarter-finals (and counting) and to have 14+ Grand Slams so quickly. Just ask Nadal when he lost in the 2nd round to Rosol or to Soderling in the 4th round.

Every player should have an off day, particularly when it comes to Slams.

warm regards...

6-2, 6-3, 6-2 and 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 and 6-3, 6-0 (and not even finals).

Re: Roger : We are best ever, The four of us? Thatís a really difficult call.

Can you imagine the articles if Roger had said: "Yes, certainly, we are the best ever." The tards and lots of fans would view that as hubris, not a help to RF's sublime public image.

Plus the next question would be, "So you've had the most weeks as Number 1 among the Best Ever Generation, so by logical extension aren't you the Greatest of All Time?" Then there'd be articles about a haughty Fed --- certainly not what the boardrooms of his sponsors want to see.

Besides, most people think he's the GOAT, there is no upside gain for him proclaiming it.

Roger handled the question in the best possible way. He is perfection personified, of course. What did we expect?

Players are too humble. Should be more like Rosol or Gulbis.

When Roger eats the pizza, the door slams shut.

Re: Roger : We are best ever, The four of us? Thatís a really difficult call.

it's easy to be consistent when cookie cut surfaces reward the same style of baseline grinding

agassi won the career slam and lendl, edberg and courier reached all 4 finals when they were distinct and different

Roger didn't order dominos, Berdych crashed through the rotting door.

Strange comment...okay if u lump together the last three or two years yeah u can say it's a mess, but taking this tennis season into account the WTA does indeed appear to be just fine.

Azarenka: winning her first 20+ matches and getting to number one by actually winning a slam! Then following that up with bronze medal at the Olympics and RU at USO.

Sharapova: reaching the finals of 3 of the last 4 slams she played entering RG, then winning the career slam and an Olympic Silver medal!

Serena:

"fiasco"...
