View Poll Results: Do you agree with Pete?

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%

Default Will Federer win another slam?

After today's match, it's obvious that the age is catching up with the old man and he can no longer beat a top player unless they choke. RG is obviously out of question as is AO (too slow). Uso also looks unlikely as he simply can't hang against guys who can read his serve. That leaves wimbledon. Question is, will he get another easy draw, weak finals player and an indoor final?

Rather lame trolling attempt, TopSpinny.

For those who want to think Fed is done, then go ahead.

Hope there is a bit more of unlearning in the future. In the meantime, go have a ball!

In the future Federer will be Olderer and certainly NOT Golderer

Default Re: The Federer Decline Thread (Is he done, will he win another Slam)

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.
