There's a degree of truth in it but there is a larger degree of nonsense in this article.
First of all, Federer is human. He's not invincible even if he's damn close to being unbeatable. But this year, Safin managed it, Gasquet did it and Nadal beat him. Other than that, a number of players have taken a set from him.
Beyond that, you really shouldn't focus too much on that number one spot and on his dominance. We've been able to see plenty of fun matches with lesser gods this year.
Secondly, saying that Agassi is the last of the game's great personalities is
Thirdly, saying that today's tennis is a game of power tennis devoid of rallies is utter nonsense and proof that this journalist is not interested in the sport.
