Fed- how many more years of domination?

He's 24 now, Nadal is 20.

When Fed is 26, Nadal will be 22. I'm sure Fed will be fantastic still at 26.

But when Fed is 28, when most tennis players go 'off' Nadal will be Fed's age 24.

For me personally i don't think Age will make any difference to Fed. Sampras was old and he never lost many matches.

But when Fed is 29-30, and Nadal 25-26, i think Nadal will be world no.1, as that age gap is more pronounced? Unless a Richard Gasquet or some other good talent comes good (i doubt it very much!!)

just a thought.

How many threads will you start in a day?

He will dominate to 2106.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Fed- how many more years of domination?

Imopssible to tell. He's got the talent to dominate for many years, but it's really all about motivation. Can he keep up the total dedication to the game or not. At the top of the game it's nuances like this that make the difference. Sampras maintained the intensity for most of his career - others to numerous to mention, did not.

As for Nadal, I think it's way premature to talk about where he will be when he's 26 years old. It is well-known that grinders often wear themselves out. They, more than anyone else, need to maintain a total dedication to the game and to staying physically and mentally finetuned. It's not easy to play with the intensity of Nadal year in and year out.

I think I start more threads.

But Halba, most of your threads seem to be exclusively about Nadal and/or Federer. Or is that my imagination?

"My greatest point is my persistence. I never give up in a match. However down I am, I fight until the last ball. My list of matches shows that I have turned a great many so-called irretrievable defeats into victories."
