With this humiliating loss at Montreal, it is time to claim that new era has arrived.

He has rarely lose matches especially with French players on hardcourt.

I personally believe he has peaked, do you think so too?

If Roger has peaked, then he has been peaking since 2007 because he has been terrible in non-Grand Slam matches.. Well not terrible, but obviously his standard when he plays in Grand Slams is nonevident in other tournaments.

I mean credit has to be given to Tsonga though. He stopped missing nearly all his shots when Roger was up in that third set.

I think he peaked a couple of years ago doesn't mean that he isn't still the best player on tour.

~~~for Masters events FED doesn`t really care much anymore, sure he likes to win and be #1 but he doesn`t really stress about losing every Masters title in the QF or SF anymore-- to him they`re merely practice for the slams these days..!!

shall i remind you of FED`s performance in the slams 2004---now:: win, win, SF, SF, win, win, win, final, win, win, win, final, win, win, SF, final, final, win, final, win, win..

Well we can't judge if he has peaked until a few years down the track, but i presume he knows he will not be able to match it with the new youngsters fighting for his spot over the next couple of years so he tries not to burnout before the slams. Which is a smart thing to do and could produce another 4-5 slams down the track.

He will peak in the age of 40.

Peaked??He peaked years ago but is still infintely better than 95% of players on tour.

He simply just isn't as fussed about masters titles as he was.No way Tsonga beats him in a GS - he's just far too inconsistent.

Even if Tsonga plays up to the level he showed in the AO 08??:eek:

Fed won't win a single atp match from now on.

In GS?? If Fed ever has mononucleosis again I guess he could.

Thats just it with Tsonga....AO08 was great for him but not a whole lot since.Will he ever reach that level again for consistent periods? Or was he just playing above himself?

For Federer it is all about the majors. You can take 2 sets from the great man but taking 3 in a best of five is mighty difficult.

Are you kidding me?? every single match he loses hes past his peak.. yada yada yada.. and then every single time, he turns round and wins another slam

Federer arguably peaked around the AO2007. Since then he has been less consistent outside of the slams. He used to clean up at the Hard Court masters events, but has had a TERRIBLE record on hard court masters events for quite some time now.

Humiliating? He lost to the world number 7, a guys who has won a masters series, been to a grand slam final and beaten all of the top 5 players in the world now you prick.

Old news. Where have you been? he peaked 3 years ago.

Yea, I think it was 2006. :lol: Your question should be has he past his peak. I'd day yea a couple of times. Yesterday was one of them.

His peak was clearly 04-06. Starting in 07 he became a mug at the non slam events whereas in the previous three seasons he was virtually unbeatable anywhere.

Oh my god.

Why do some people here in MTF always open these topics after every single match Federer loses? He isn't a winning machine who is not allowed to lose matches. New era? Haha. Who won the last Grand Slams? We still have the same players around in the top rankings positions with Federer leading comfortably at the moment. He won't lose his No.1 spot until the end of the year, maybe not until the FO or Wimbledon next year.
Has he peaked? I think so, yes. But even if he plays not his best, he will be able to win and to win and to win...

This federer is a bastard! He peaks every TMS

He peaked from 2003-06 IMO, but he's still better than 95% of the tour even after, which doesn't say much about the tour does it...haha

Federer peaked at 5-1 in that 3rd set against Tsonga :worship:


Jokes... But honestly I think he peaked in 2007.

Thread is stupid because he reached his peak in 2005/06, sure, he wins slams but he isn't at his peak right now.

I swear to god I can't even browse this forum anymore, the retardation and kneejerk reactions are just so over the top. At first you think half the threads are a joke, then you read them and people are actually being serious. It's almost depressing.

If the peak is defined as the point in his career when the future is less successful than the past, then yes.

Federer is finished.

He won't ever win another Grand Slam.

AtoChansu

the idea of him peaking has been around for 2 years, and in those two years he's won 3 grand slams. if he's past his prime, then winning 3 of 8 must mean nothing

no he didn't peak yet, he won 15 slams and he still didn't peak.
