That's just sad but these guys are driven by desire to enhance their legacy !
Federer is still playing because his 17 looked under considerable risk , I expect him to retire now it is clear that Rafa will not go on slam winning runs anymore.
True...but the most important point that I want to bring in this thread is that 250 tournaments are good opportunities for lower tier players to win titles.
ATP should allow the top players to not play more than 1 ATP 250 per year...that can protect the lower tier players.
True Federer has more slams.
And when you win slams you are respected, but you won't get the same respect on 250 titles.
