No. I think Federer's decline is a fact and he's not winning any major in the future. 38 17.35%
I kinda agree... He's in a great moment, but the other 2 guys are too good. No more slams for Feddy 45 20.55%
I totally agree. Fed's still playing great tennis and he'll probably win another major 104 47.49%
Hello. I'm Rod Laver and my records are intact. Suck it losers. 32 14.61%

It's very interesting to see what would happen to Fedal next year. To see what was left in their tank. I always believe their fate in tennis were intertwined together, though they are 5 years apart.

I think Federer would win 1 more slam in the next 2 years. As long as he can qualify to QF and SF regularly, he would continue playing and anything can happen from there. I think he can do this as the field before QF is still wide open for him.

Nadal's presence in slams would affect him in tricky way. He has good chance on all surfaces, but he couldn't just face what's thrown in front of him anymore. I think Federer is truly disappointed losing against Berd, because he comes here as the favorite and No. 1 player, so he wants to win a slam with that status, NOT as an "opportunist". But sadly, I'm afraid he has to be more like an "opportunist" if he wants to win a slam. I hope he can win just 1 more slam as No. 1 and the favorite, but it's more unlikely than being an opportunist, I guess.

Even if he'd managed to do the impossible and win here some people would still have called him an opportunist due to Rafa's absence...

And I think RG given the right conditions, especially if Nadal bombs out again.

Djokovic is too strong there now imo, although there would be no other challengers aside from him and maybe Del Potro.

Fed was nowhere near his 2011 best at RG this year and could still have won at least 2/3 sets. It's a bit like the AO 2012. If Fed played Djok, he'd have shown him the door. Djok got lucky Nadull took out Rog.

Still, Roger is not getting any younger and he just seems to play so much better at Wimbledon nowadays.

Plus if Nadal remains injured then it seems Rog can handle Djoker on grass, Murray would be the main threat but he is a erratic headcase along with the ballbashing trio of Tsonga, Berdych and Del Po (who is average on grass imo, look at ferrer's demolition of him). I just think Roger was poor throughout the latter stages of the Olympics for some reason, making his opponents look better than they actually played.

What does it say that this thread was started in March 2008, 4.5 years ago and yet he is now #1? Hardly anyone, even his diehard fans, back then would have put good money on him being #1 in September 2012, which speaks to RF as the GOAT.

Never under-estimate the comeback power of Roger Federer.

How many players can do that?

This didn't look like an acceleration in his decline at all. His movement was good, even to his forehand side: it's just Berdych was able to anticipate his shots and send them back with interest. The forehand errors in the 1st 2 sets cost Fed the match, & I would attribute them to rustiness.
