i really don't understand threads that talk about "(insert name here) will fall" or "(name here) will be out of the top 4 or top 10"
well no shit. noone plays forever. EVERYONE FALLS. if, as in this case, federer does "fall"... then what? will people be talking about it? other than at the time it actually happens, no. because people always move on. believe it or not, novak, federer, nadal, rosol, donald young, etc. etc. will actually all "fall", given enough time.
i honestly do not see the logic. anyway, rant over. i see this thread, i believe, is about him falling out of the top four or ten in 2013. that at least gives a timeline and is somewhat reasonable in likelihood but dubious in nature.
not necessarily. Players can choose to retire before dropping in the rankings. Roddick did that more or less. I have a feeling Federer, while active, will never go out of the top 10 again.
