Will Federer win the US Open and call it a day a la Sampras?

2012 is Federer's 14th year in the top 100, and his 12th year in the top 15.

2002 was Sampras' 14th year in the top 100, and his 12th year in the top 15.

There is absolutely no chance that Federer retires this year.

Johnny, can you please wait for the off season. We will run out of ideas for ridiculous threads at this rate.

Well Laver played till he was 41, so it could happen.

Possibly, and definitely not.

If he did of course it would be an even more definite no because that would motivate him to carry on playing all the more. :shrug:

I don't see Federer winning the US Open this year, just because he's so focused on Wimbledon and the Olympics. If those two events don't go his way, it's going to be tough for him to get motivated for a US Open run.

Nah he won't. I don't see a sort of Sampras end for him to be honest, if he wins anything major he'll be galvanised to go for more.

Laver played in a mug era where Murray would win every tournament for years and own every player

One myth regarding Sampras is that he had the perfect Hollywood ending and retired straight after his US Open in 2002.

But of course in reality he waited almost a year before officially announcing his retirement on the eve of the 2003 USO.

He was entered in many tournaments in 2003 but kept on withdrawing the week before they started. He began to prepare for Wimbledon 2003, and that was when he realised it was time to retire.

It's similar to the myth that Borg walked away from the game after losing the 1981 USO final, which was completely untrue.

The ignorance of these words is too outstanding.

Federer won't retire until he can't make the second week in slams. Give it a break guys.

No. Fed said he plays for a couple more years, Fed is a man of his word. Ergo, he plays on.

Olderer will retire in 2016 where he will beat Tomic in Basel final 6-7 7-6 7-6 (50-48) thus cementing his claim on GOAT status.

JG should have his thread making privileges revoked. Seriously what is this thread? It's not funny. Theres no meaningful discussion that could be derived from it. It's based on nothing. All votes for yes are based on nothing. Voting yes also means you think he will win the USO AND retire.

Federer retire after winning Wimbledon 2012, US Open 2012, Australian Open 2013, and then reaches the final of the French Open and beats Rafa in straight sets FO 2013. Did I say that he wins the gold metal in London for singles? He completes the golden non-calendar slam, shuts Rod the fake Laver up for good and then retires. With 20 slams!

He'll also score that elusive win over Murray in GS final on playstation.

Stupid Thread, he has already stated he will play until the next olympics, and is not happy about the 4 mandatory ties rather than 2.

Fed will go on. He's all about destroying Jimmy Conners' records now. He wants to be the NO.1 tennis beast forever.
