I know it seems like a crazy question to ask considering Roger is a full five years older but at this point its a valid question. Nadal has missed significant time over the past few years due to injury and although he's been relatively healthy this year his decline physically has been evident. Roger plays such a fluid game, he's never hurt. I think the only thing that gets Fed to retire before Rafa is if he wants to quit playing the game.
obviously no. but, Roger will retire at 31, Nadal will retire at 29-30 max and at that time he wont be top 5, wont win MS, let alone GS. (as a side note Clownga will retire at 29 and it will be a moment of joy)

I think Roger will play another year or two, but I don't think Rafa will play until he's 30 like Roger is.
I agree. Roger will retire first tho.
