Default Will Nadal Retire Before Federer?

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.

no way Nadal retires until he's like 29 that seems like the appropriate age for him

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

Default Re: Will Nadal Retire Before Federer?

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)

A few more beatings from Djoker (not to mention Fish &, erm, Dodig) & it may be on the cards.

If Fed is willing to play through his decline, easily he can play till even 40.

If Federer is content to lower his expectations he could play on til 35/36 like Agassi, and then it would be possible, but I don't see him playing that long any more.

This time in 2009 it would certainly have looked a lot more likely.

Depends on Rafa's body really. Assuming he remains fit enough, of course Roger will retire first!
