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%

No, rankings are what they are. They reflect performances in the last 52 weeks, and so far Fed has been performing better than Murray, across all surfaces.

The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.

Yes reaching semi-finals of a slam is embarrassing only for Federer. That alone shows you what he has accomplished.

Quoted for truth. Federer lifted the expectations of himself to such a high level that it won't be probably matched by any other player in near future.

I'd argue a lot more have joined his fan base and the few that have left are idiots and real bandwagoners.

Good thing Pete Sampras didn't listen to you and didn't retire when he got bitch-slapped and served embarrassment pie by a 19 yo Federer in 2001 Wimbledon.
